The Lyrics

(Now what was that book title -- 'Extraordinary Popular Diversions and
the Madness of Crowds'?)
'American Idol' -- I wanted Clay to stay....
'American Idol' -- listen to what I say.

How come ol' Ruben made number one?
'Cause Wednesday night's results have left me stunned.
I spent three hours tryin' to GET THROUGH TO
ONE-eight-six-six FOUR-three-six FIVE OH TWO.
1300 votes behind
Guess there'll just be no next time.

The Title -- just means you're on display.
American Idol -- it's all the same to Clay.

American Idol -- vote 20 times a day.
'American Idol' -- half the votes were for Clay

I warped the speed dialing on the phone
Don't I have better things to do at home
I only got through ten times, what a shame
But all of Ruben's fans did just the same.
Don't spend summer now on edge
Buy Clay's recordings, and get revenge.

Some title -- won't matter much someday
'American Idol' -- who's 'Kelly', anyway?

Oh - gotta vote for Clay, gotta vote for Clay, yeah, go, go, go.
Ya gotta be compulsive.... just gotta be compulsive....
Why, why? Why, why?
WHY, WHY? Why, why?

They're so good they're fair
They're so clean they squeak
Now I'm going to ask myself point blank
If I remember - WHO? - next week?
You know that I got a life....
You know that my life goes on....
You know that I got a life....
You know that it isn't on.... Idol
So what, 'American Idol'....
