The Lyrics

And yes, I do watch the show!
American Idol, sing away for me
American Idol, judges let me be
When you come through auditon door
Hope your performance is not a bore
I hope youre one that I can let through
And hope America votes for you
Now idols, don't be like Keith
American Idol, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay

--- Lead Guitar ---

Ruben and Clay Aiken, Justin and Kelly
Hung songs Ricky Martin, don't do for me
The top 12 move it on the floor
I enjoy each and every performance more
Pen salesmen and Rat Pack guys
Are now before my own two eyes
Now Idols, please sing away
American Idol, listen what I say-ay-ay-ay

--- Lead Guitar Solo ---
Oh that Simon Cowell, and what he say
Sometimes had a bad thing, just to say
Randy Jackson calling everyone a dog
Paula Abdul giving nice comments
Don't need to hear Keith sing
Want that JPL to sing
William Hung singing She Bangs
Did not do for those judges
Now Idols, sing away for me
American Idol, judges let me be

Go, gotta win right now yeah, gotta gotta win right now yeah go, go, go
Gotta vote for me now
Gotta vote for me
Vote vote, vote vote, vote vote, vote vote
Hope ya do vote for me
Like I will for you
What comes out of Simon's mouth
Randy and that Paula's too
You know I'm gonna vote
You know I'm gonna win
You know I'm gonna vote
You know I'm gonna vo-ote, idols
Gonna vote for you idols
Vote your American Idols
Keep em In the competition
2004 Jack Wilson
