I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong
To crash the critics saying
Is it right or is it wrong?
If only fame had an IV
Baby could I bear,
Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause
Live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(Make it real loud)
Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(Make it real loud)

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

I've overheard your theory
"Nostalgia's for geeks"
I guess sir, if you say so
Some of us just like to read

One second I'm a Kunst, then suddenly the Kunst is me
Pop culture was an art, now art's in pop culture in me

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause
Live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(make it real loud)
Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(make it real loud)

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

Touch touch
Touch touch now

I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause
Live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(Make it real loud)
Give me the thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch
(Make it real loud)

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch

A- R -T- P- O- P.
