(British Broad...)
(...passionate at the moment...)
(...dunes...)
(We're very happy...)

Last night, my girlfriend asked me why...
(On the radio.)
(On the radio.)
...they don't play me on MTV.
Well, I guess I never really tried to write a song that's this cheesy.
But I'm tired of bein' poor.
I'm tired of this life.
And I'm ready to sell out completely.
Now I want some supermodel to become my wife and I want more bling-bling than P-Diddy.

"La, la, la..."
Everybody sings 'the stupidest song on the radio.'
(Radio.)
Look at me.
I'm on MTV in the cheesiest video you'll ever see.

Last night, a DJ died.
He took his life on the radio.
His hopes and dreams denied.
They never let him spin what he wanted to.
I say if your hands are tied, you don't have a word about it anyway.
Why not sneak in my song?
You could help me get laid.
Laid and paid.

"La, la, la..."
Everybody sings 'the stupidest song on the radio.'
(Radio.)
Look at me.
I'm on MTV in the cheesiest video you'll ever see.
"La, la, la..."
Everybody sings 'the stupidest song on the radio.'
Look at me.
I'm on MTV in the cheesiest video you'll ever see.

Keep the lyrics simple and the melody insipid.
Play it on and on and on until they're sick and try to skip it.
It's a futile termination that's on every fucking station.
This sonic defecation is on ludicrous rotation all over the nation.

(Well, it's a hot morning here in Downtown Hell.)
(Fire and brimstone is falling from the skies and skull-headed bats are eating all the naughty little children.)
(If you're like everybody else, you're stabbing yourself in the ear right now with a sharpened chopstick, trying to make this madness end.)
(This one's goin' out to you.)
(It's a sellout by odds - 57 billion more times in a row.)

Last night, my girlfriend asked me why...
(On the radio.)
...they don't play me on MTV.
I guess I never really tried to sell my soul on T.V., to sell out this completely!

"La, la, la..."
Everybody sings 'the stupidest song on the radio.'
Look at me.
I'm on MTV in the cheesiest video you'll ever see.
"La, la, la..."
Everybody sings 'the stupidest song on the radio.'
Look at me.
I'm on MTV in the cheesiest video you'll ever see.
(On the radio.)
(On the radio.)
(On the radio.)
(On the radio.)
