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
