The Lyrics

I fall for believing everytime
I'll be dropped in about three weeks time
I can't sing myself, and my ego works overtime
even when the shops receive it, I find
the single - it don't sell this time
I'll be back in Panto around christmas time

for fame I can't stop trying
left my job on that Soap
I started this pop career trying out -
I want my go, baby
And so now the clock is ticking
obscurity? now is the time
to the Jobcentre I'll be heading down
and so goodbye

have my fans gone away?
guess I'm just not that great
last track reached One I say
this one scraped Forty-Eight
hey

I fall for believing everytime
I'll be dropped in about three weeks time
I can't sing myself, and my ego works overtime
even when the shops receive it, I find
the single - it don't sell this time
I'll be back in Panto around christmas time

Robert DeNiro's waiting
to Broadway I will fly
Comic Relief has no place vacant, they say
but that's a lie, baby
the TV show I appear in
"Guess who he used to be....?"
Top of the Pops I appeared on, twice:
- once, plus repeat

how can I earn today
no contracts come my way
last track reached One I say
this one scraped Forty-Eight
hey

I fall for believing everytime
I'll be dropped in about three weeks time
I can't sing myself, and my ego works overtime
even when the shops receive it, I find
the single - it don't sell this time
I'll be back in Panto around christmas time
