The Lyrics

I wrote this song to mark Duran Duran's "comeback"....... I'm sure you'll love it... maybe the band will probably be a bit offended though, particularly as they've put on a few pounds and their hair's thinned since they were last famous. Ha! Ha! Ha! Sweeeet......If you don't know what verse 2 is on about, ask your parents!This is from the album rather than single version of the song.
You saw me collapse at Nick Rhodes' All You-can-eat buffet
But still I haven't had my cholesterol fill
I love my yachts even if they can't support my bulk
Don't care if I'll become the next Incredible Hulk

Just serve the pies to me now, don't save 'em till the morning after
Just serve the pies to me now, can you cook them in some pancake batter?

So great to be a millionaire with a fancy boat?
Oops, it's capsized with my ass on fire
AAARGGGHHH, Help me now cos I need the COASTGUARD!!!
AAARRGGGH, I just need the COASTGUARD, I overdosed on RAW LARD!!

Just serve the pies to me now, don't save 'em till the morning after
Just serve the pies to me now, can you cook them in some pancake batter?
Cook them in some pancake batter, cook them in some pancake batter......

45, I'm still around, with my band, we got to the Q awards....
My keyboardist and drummer both now look like laboratory mice
And you think "who're you kidding?", I'm like a cross between Otis Redding, and a drunken uncle at a wedding
Some people call me a has-been fool but I think that's not very (singing in obnoxious Birmingham, UK accent) nooice...

Just serve the pies to me now, don't save 'em till the morning after
Please, Just serve the pies to me now, can you cook them in some pancake batter?
Cook those pies in some pancake batter, cook those pies in some pancake batter
Cook those pies in some pancake batter, cook those pies in some pancake batter
Cook those pies in some pancake batter, cook those pies in some pancake batter
By the day I get 12 stone fatter, by the day I get 12 stone fatter
I'm a pop god so it doesn't matter, I'm a pop god so it doesn't matter
(repeat to fade)

(sound of Simon exploding)

Andy Taylor (Duran Duran's guitarist) (in the style of Dick Van Dyke): Blimey, he's a goner!

Ridiculous... Have you ever HEARD Save A Prayer? C'mon. I bet you weigh three times what Simon does... admit that you're jealous. When you're his age let's see what you look like.
