1, 2, 3, 4!
If you wanna start a band

We flew NY to LA
Left unpaid and unplayed on the pavement with jetlag
Did you hire a PA? NO!
Lost in tears on the strip, this ain't no glamour trip
Missed the nightflight from Roma
You don't wanna talk about that
But you are gonna rap about champagne in the speakers
Oh but that wan't us coz we was drinking prosecco

We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
In the music biz, is this how it is?
If you wanna start a band listen to this!

You drag us over to Hammersmith
Give our disc a quick flick and sigh 'I can't hear the hits'
Wanna listen to my BS?
NO! Bout the millions you plan to spend on your new fave band
Give us our 12,000 euros NOW!
Not at the label or home, hundred missed calls on your telephone
Til we say 'Johnny Depp remixed us'
You SMS in delight and say 'He's definately hype!'

We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
In the music biz is this how it is?
If you wanna start a band listen to this!

Dress up as robots in Soho
Hid outside the BBC to play our CD to a DJ
Do you wanna be on my show? Yeh!
We chuck glitter in your eyes and pull out lazers
'Open Fire!'
Stalked the journos round reading
We got tagged in your mag as 'Britains worst band'
'Absolutely no talent'
'The most unsuccesful duo the UK has never known!'

We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
In the music biz is this how it is?
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
If you wanna start a band
If you wanna start a band
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
In the music biz is this how it is?
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
We're in the music biz, is this how it is?
In the music biz is this how it is?
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
If you wanna start a band listen to this!
If you wanna start a band listen to this!

Your boring! Your Shit! Boring!
Get off! Yeah get off! Your Rubbish!
Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off! Off!
Rubbish!!

    General Comment"we got tagged in your mag as Britains worst band"
    "Absolutely no talent, the most unsuccessful duo the UK has never known"

    These are actually true; though the funny thing was that the very same people who made these comments then decided that they love the Robots and think they'll do brilliantly in the industry.

    Crazy critics.

    Anyway; love this song and the whole album.

    General CommentI love this song so much!

    I think it's basically a total mockery of all th stupid fucked up critics that said they were only famous because of their boyfriends Noel and Chris.

    Also it's about all those critics that, as paws31 says, slated them then decided that they loved Robots!

    :S


    Anywayy, it rocks :)
