Don't ask the question
You won't like the answer
Get up off your chair
There's nothing for you here
Where the guests like souvenirs
They play with you till you're all worn out
Back where the guests like souvenirs

Prison colour blue
It's a uniform of choice
Count yourself lucky
That you don't write the software
Where the guests like souvenirs
They play with you till you're all worn out

Back where the guests like photographs
They hope you had a good night
Loosen up your tie
Make the viewers cry
I cannot pretend to cry
Memorise by heart
Every single part

There's nothing for you here
Where the guests like souvenirs
They play with you till you're all worn out
Back where the guests like souvenirs
They hope you had a good night

    General CommentWhen Neil was with Tim Finn and toured on the back of the first Finn Bros album, they did a TV slot on a UK chat show called 'Richard and Judy'. Apparently, Neil & Tim had waited around all day to do their single 'Angel's Heap', when they got 25 seconds or so in and it was faded out at the end of the show. Apparently, there was a bit of a standoff between Tim and Richard.
    With that in mind, look at the lyrics as an analysis of what it is to be a chat show host.
