It takes a great person to get an idea
But don't go public it'll ruin the plan
Because no matter how intelligent or clever you are
You're only as good as your fans.

Peter Garrett chanting "Oils, Oils!"
Can you imagine it? I don't think you can
As a Mistral employee once told me
You're only as good as your fans.

[Chorus:]
Each man kills the thing he loves
The fisherman caught in his own net
It's frightening that you deserve
The audience that you get.

The Beatles found out with Helter Skelter
And John Lennon saw it in Mr Chapman
And the Stones learnt from Gimme Shelter
You're only as good as your fans.

(Chorus)

Yo! Fight the power, what did I say?
All the boys say "YO"! All the girls say "YO"!
Everybody say "YO"! Here comes the Hamburgular
Elle McPherson is really a person
But don't tell the guy who buys the calender
Jump! Monica! Jump! Monica! Jump! Monica! Jump! Monica!
You can't get a laugh out of Steffi Graf
When you tell her that her friends are a bunch of backstabbers
Kurt Cobain couldn't deal with fame
But at least he didn't score an own goal against Columbia.
Yo! Impersonator X, give it to me!

Maybe we shouldn't hate Collingwood
Or blame religion on J.C.
Or marvel at all the racist kids
Who love Public Enemy.

(Chorus)
