You live upon a stage and everyone's agreed
You're the brightest hope by far that anyone can see
So when you take the limelight you can guarantee
You're gaining fame and claiming credibility

Tell me, baby, are you gonna get high as a kite?
Tell me, baby, are you gonna let it happen every night
How can you expect to be taken seriously?

You live within the law and everyone assumes
You must find this a bore and try something new
You're an intellectual giant, an authority
To preach and teach the whole world about Ecology

Tell me, baby, are you gonna make any other claim?
Tell me, baby, are you gonna take any of the blame?
How can you expect to be taken seriously?
How can you expect to be taken seriously?

Seriously
Seriously

You live within the headlines so everyone can see
You're supporting every new cause, meeting royalty
You're another major artist on a higher plane
Do you think they'll put you in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame?

Tell me, baby, how you generate longevity?
Tell me, baby, how you really hate publicity
How can you expect to be taken seriously?
How can you expect to be taken seriously?

Seriously
Seriously, aah
Do you have a message for your fans?

How can you expect to be taken seriously?
How can you expect to be taken seriously?

Seriously
Seriously
Seriously
Seriously, aah
Seriously
