Entertain Me Lyrics

by Soft Cell

Trying to please all these people around me
Is trying to reach for the moon
(The moon)
I see their faces looking so empty saying
I hope that they'll finish soon
(So soon)

Could be a chat show
(Yap yap yap)
Could be a go go, reaction would be the same
(The same)
So here I go though why I don't know
Trying to prove myself again

Entertain me I'm as blank as can be
And I've seen it before
And I've done it before
And I think that I like it
But no I don't like it
It just goes on over and over
And over and over and over again

I try to give them all of my best
And it's taking a turn for the worst
(Oh no)
Things going wrong, start to sing the wrong song
I think that we must be cursed
(You betcha)

Playing the wrong tune, hitting the wrong note
This is where my nerves become frayed
It's falling apart why did we ever start?
And do you think we'll be paid
(No)

Entertain me I'm as blank as can be
And I've seen it before
And I've done it before
And I think that I like it
But no I don't like it
It just goes on over and over
And over and over and over again
Over and over again

Build 'em up, knock 'em down
Build 'em up, knock 'em down
Build 'em up, knock 'em down
Build 'em up, knock 'em down
Build 'em up, knock 'em down

I see a movement down in the front row
Maybe it's just a mistake
She's smiling at me but he's frowning at me
(Hello, goodbye)
Which conclusion do I make

Fold all your arms and look straight ahead at this
Puppet on a string
You're feeling confused but you've made a decision
You don't like anything

Entertain me
I'm as blank as can be
And I've seen it before
And I've done it before
And I think that I like it
But no I don't like it
It just goes on over and over
And over and over and over
And over and over again

Build 'em up, knock them down
Build 'em up, knock them down
Build 'em up, knock them down
Build 'em up, knock them down

Entertain me
I'm as blank as can be
And I've seen it before
And I've done it before
And I think that I like it
But no I don't like it
It just goes on over and over
And over and over and over
And over and over again
