The Lyrics

I may be wrong....but I think the reason why William Hung is in business.....my guess is, the man came straight out of Hong Kong into America, looking for fortune and fame....but unfortunately the man is not blessed like a potential pop star should be....nevertheless....when he honestly believes differently, if record company execs want him anyway, there's something quite dark going on behind the scenes....wouldn't you think?I've heard tales of elementary school, where an immigrant comes in not knowing english, and kids bunch up and tease the poor soul by humiliating him or her, and the immigrant actually thinks they're being friendly....methinks the record company involved has apparently not grown up....Just an insight.
Watch the grubs keep filing in on every side
The minute they hear him sing, their eyes get wide
Unfortunately he hasn't been blessed with the talent a singer has
But that's not the point my friends
When the company hears him sing they become swine
When the see him sans talent completely, that's just fine
Give him a contract and money anyway, by the way they get lotsa dough too
Secretly the swine laugh their butt off at poor William Hung!

Chorus:

Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy ,Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy

William Hung
William Hung
WIlliam Hung
William Hung
Bill Hung

They knew he really wanted to make it in the business
For there's fame and fortune and plunder and treasure in it
William simply can not sing, he seems to be unaware

Record company execs : "William, dear man, we're your friends!"

For some odd reason he thinks he's legit.....
The record companies say so, and that's it
Chocolate persuasion, caramel words, a knife hidden underneath
Laughing as the money matters and not WIlliam Hung!

(chorus)

William, poor soul, thinks he's a superstar
God pity the naiive, they never get that far
Looking back at what the execs can do, he's not going to laugh
But that's not the point my friends
Grubs never take a moment to ponder his dream you know
William Hung is their jester on top of it, the grubs make dough
God pity the innocent, they only stand in the way
God pity the innocent, who get shortchanged like Willam Hung!

(chorus)

Bill?

Grubs never take a moment to ponder his dream you know
William Hung is their jester on top of it, the grubs make dough
God pity the innocent, they only stand in the way
God pity the innocent, who get shortchanged like Willam Hung!

(chorus)
And the Money Kept Rolling in is done by Andrew Lloyd Webber, not me.
