What have we got
Yeah, yeah
What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's what we got!

Check out all these rock stars
Come on watch them suffer
So very sad
And I hope you agree

Not enough attention
Oh and did I mention
Life is tough
Mr. Platinum CD

What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!

(Oooooooo-oh-oooooo-ooooo)

Look at all the pop stars
Thinking that they're in charge
Let's see who's
The biggest whore

Come on shake your asses
Only for the masses
You write the songs
I'll lip-sync it on tour

What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!

(Set your soul on fire)

People come together
Nothing lasts forever
Consume it all
And we will supply

Life is for the famous
Fools and all the shameless
And everything that
Money can buy

What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
Yeah, yeah

What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!

What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's entertainment
What have we got
Yeah, yeah
That's what we've got!

    General Commentc'mon people... this has been here for how long...
    this is about people in the BIZ going out of their way and basicly exploiting them selves to get more money...

    the decline of traditional fame as we know it!

    General CommentWords of Spider One:

    This is a big, dumb song about the music industry. And because we tailored it to be a little dance-y, it's mocking the industry in its very style. Of course, manufactured pop stars are an easy target and, to be honest, I've never had an issue with that because I think there should always be music for nine-year-old girls. My problem came when all of a sudden that type of music became legitimate entertainment for the rest of us. It just drives me crazy when people start talking about *NSYNC and Britney Spears as "artists." That's why that line in the songs says, "You write the songs, I'll lip-sync 'em on tour." The line, "Let's see who's the biggest whore," was actually inspired by Christina Aguilera's "Dirty" video. When I saw it, it became clear that it's all about whoring yourself out on any level possible ­ and here's a girl who can actually sing! But they're entertainers; they're bred from birth to entertain ­ dance classes, voice classes, acting classes. If it weren't music, it would be toothpaste commercials or soap operas, so the music aspect can't be any more important than the rest of it. In my case, I bought a bass for $15 when I was 13 years old and learned how to put two notes together, but it became very important to me.

    General CommentThis song is all about the fakeness of the entertainment industry, and it really says it all. I agree with it 100%.
