The Lyrics

Ah, the perils of stage fright...
Testing, testing, one, two, three, hope I don't mess up, here I go, here I go

Oh, bugger

'Scuse me, 'scuse me, 'scuse me
I'm not good at...this
Not real good at...this
Kinda bad at...this
'Kay, I suck at...this

Can people here me now?
Can hear the sound?
Can someone tell me (YES!)
Thank you, guy in crowd
Listen to me now
I'm here for 'bout an hour
And I am kinda (JACKASS!)
Nervous about it now (START!)
I have to talk about (START!)
Must talk a- talk a- talk about (START!)
This happens when nervous, I st-st-stutter out
(GET OFF!) People, quiet now
I have to talk about
I have forgetten now

(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this, is this, is this, is this, is this thing on?

(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear, you hear, you hear, you hear, you hear me now?

(ON WITH IT!)
Yes, I do know
I have notes, they're meant to jog my mind when it gets slow
But where did they go
Just where, I do not know
I swear that I left them here, and (JACKASS!) here we go
(GET OFF!) Found 'em! Where? Just guess
Right where I put them
(somethin')
I guess my vision
Gets kinda blurry when
I get real nervous, so, this mike's got a problem

(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this thing on?
(Hey) Is this, is this, is this, is this, is this thing on?

(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear me now?
(Can) you hear, you hear, you hear, you hear, you hear me now?

Alright!!
Sheesh, hear me out
I repat things when in doubt
(*clears throat*)
I'm okay
Time to talk 'bout big things today
(GET OFF!) I talk quietly
Also nervous so don't heckle me
Y'all do it nastily
And y'all just aren't, helpin' me (START!)
Got my notes sorted now (START!)
The mike's turned up real loud (START!)
Now I can talk about (START!)
This country's going down (What?)
You fuckers pay me now (What?)
Or I'll blow this town (What?)
I've got the trigger now (Crap!)
Nuke On This Evil Sound

(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me now or...
(Boom) Pay me, pay me, pay me, pay me, pay me now or...

(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this thing on?
(Wait) Is this, is this, is this, is this, is this thing on?

Yep, it's workin'!
ZOMG TERRORIST (I know Nuke on this evil sound makes no damn sense, but I needed the rhyme and the acronym to work)

(HHS) Honestly, not your best work TCOP. It seemed to me that you really struggled on this one. There were a few lyrical stumbles throughout the song. I know Missy's a rough artist to cover. This is actually this first round in this HHS contest where I thought you struggled at all. You've been dominating up to this point. This just isn't your round, sorry bud.

Kinda repetitive but it's not terrible... Like Blaydeman said, though, not really your best work.

I hate agreeing with others when the others comments in circumstances like this, but on this one I have no choice, particularly on repetition, in this one it got kinda old, sorry buddy. . .
