I stand here waiting
For you to bang the gong
To crash the critic saying
Is it right or is it wrong?
If only fame had in, I’d be
Baby, could I bare?
Being away from you
I found that they put it in here

[Chorus]
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

[Post-Chorus x2]
Give me that thing I love
(I’ll turn turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make ‘em touch
(Make it real loud)

I 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 koons
Then, suddenly, the koons is me
Pop culture was in art, now
Art’s in pop culture, in me

[Chorus]
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

[Post-Chorus x2]
Give me that thing I love
(I’ll turn turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make ‘em touch
(Make it real loud)

(Ooh) Touch, touch (x2)
Ooh ooh ooh ooh (x4)

[Chorus]
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

[Post-Chorus x2]
Give me that thing I love
(I’ll turn turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make ‘em touch
(Make it real loud)
