"Absolute Power" as written by and Neil Hannon....
You don't remember
You don't recall
The night we met or
What I was called
You're really sorry
For losing touch
Your memory fails you far too much

Don't say you'll take me
Some place to eat
Don't make a promise
You'll never keep
Don't say your number's
Not yours to give
Don't tell me I know how it is

But hey, it's okay
It's all right
'Cause you are a star tonight
You've got a hot date
So sleep tight
With your guitar tonight
You say you're so tired
Of this life
Well, get in your car and drive
With all the cameras
And the headlines
Screaming "You are a star tonight,
With absolute power tonight,"
And absolute power corrupts
Absolutely

Fame has no colour
Fame has no form
Fame cannot shelter
You from the storm
Fame casts no shadow
Fame makes no sound
Fame leaves no footprints in the ground

Fame can't create you
Fame cannot kill
Fame doesn't love you
Fame never will
Fame won't be there to
Kiss you goodnight
Fame doesn't care if you live or you die

[Instrumental]

But hey, it's okay
It's all right
'Cause you are a star tonight
You've got a hot date
So sleep tight
With your guitar tonight
You say you're so tired
Of this life
Well, get in your car and drive
With all the cameras
And the headlines
Screaming "You are a star tonight,
With absolute power tonight,"
And absolute power corrupts
Absolutely
Absolutely
Absolutely
