We flatter those we scarcely know, and scream at those who love us

VERSE
Praise pictures of people
Who died a long time ago
Hold up their exploits
Think they could do no wrong

CHORUS
While we curse we scream and we shout
At the people who love us

VERSE
Flatter the fleeting stranger
So they'll think the best of us
Show them only our best side
Treat them with the kindest grace

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

VERSE
Celebrate the famous
The glittering life they lead
Hope one day to meet one
Have a story to tell

CHORUS
