Lyrics

He can't dance or sing He can't do anything But what the Hell, The kid's a looker

Just add cash and stir And there you are - another nonsense non-star

There's no pretense This kid is dense But what the Hell, The kid's a looker

Just add cash and stir And the crass consumers line up shoulder to shoulder

Some time through the night The kid took his life So very sad, however, do not call this number again We're busy molding the face of the kid's replacement, yeah
