"stars of CCTV" as written by and Richard Archer....
And every move that I make
Gets recorded to tape
So somebody up there
Can keep me safe

I'm going out tonight
I've got my hair just right
I'm always looking good
For the spotlight

Stick 'em up
Give me the money
A winning smile
Up to the gallery
I'm gonna get my face on the 6 'o' clock news

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
We're the stars of CCTV
Can't you see the camera loves me?

On every corner, every street
Down every underpass you'll see
Somebody's stealing the show
Somebody looking like me

I'll see you out tonight
Just got the pose just right
We're always looking good
For the spotlight

We turn it on
And so we're full of speed
We fill the screen
Can't help but notice me
I'm gonna get my face on the 6 'o' clock news

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
We're the stars of CCTV
Can't you see the camera loves me?

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
Flashing blue lights, camera, action
Watching my life, main attraction
We're the stars of CCTV
Can't you see the camera loves me?

    General CommentI love this song, it's about how similar everyone is and how CCTV never seems to work becausebad things happen all the time! And I'm the first person here!

    General Commentamazing song. i always think of the london bombings when i think of this song. i bought this cd a few days after, that's probably why. and london is the most CCTV-d city there is.

    General Commentim thinking some people want to get famous so they commit a criminal act to get themselves on tv.

    General CommentSarcastic lyrics I assume. Like, they're making fun of those self-absorbed famous types.

    I absolutely love this song, I like whole album actually. :]
