what do i do
playing my tune for you
just to get you in the mood
everybody's going to hollywood
you're driving me mad
but i'm smiling to the crowd instead
a lot of money is at stake,
this is a hit and that's a fake
this is what you mean to me
this is what they all should see
make a make up in a foolish style
telling the truth by making a big lie
when i come, i come but nothing's at ease
breaking up the whole is a modern disease
maybe you think tomorrow's just a joke
it's a joke after joke after joke after joke
my love
everything's an interview
and nothing's really new
and everybody's looking for clues
and you know what to do with a clue
my love
get ready for the show
they're waiting and they will never go
this night is just a go
and it's only for show
dig that deal and be a millionaire
drinking cocktails in the stratosphere
getting jetlagged with my business friends in these supersonic wonderlands
there's a flicker on the graphic display,
first he's smiling then he's fading away
maybe he thinks tomorrow's just a joke
it's a joke after joke after joke after joke
