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 an I.V., 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 that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

Give me that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) 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 a 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 that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

Give me that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch

Ooh-ooh

Touch, touch

Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh

Touch, touch now

Ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo

Ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo

Ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo

Ooh-ooh

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 that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

Give me that thing that I love (I’ll turn the lights on)

Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch (make it real loud)

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Make it real loud

(A-p-p-l-a-u-s-e) Put your hands up, make ’em touch, touch

Applause – Gareth Bush
