    Lyrics

    This is the Awards for Industry and Free Enterprise
    So let me sit you down and tell you how I won first prize
    I took on your free enterprise and your pretty little shops
    Walked in with empty bags and walked out with the lot

    So I've come for my award, I've come for my award
    I thought I'd come in person that's the least I can afford
    Let hands be shook
    Champagne poured
    Sentence ignored
    Yes. I've come for my award

    This is the Awards for Industry and Free Enterprise
    Anyone want a gold watch in a ladies' size?
    There's a few more round the back
    I stole them from your shop
    We've got no more in silver, that's all that you'd got

    So I've come for my award, I've come for my award
    I thought I'd come in person that's the least I can afford
    Let hands be shook
    Champagne poured
    Sentence ignored
    Yes. I've come for my award

    I chatted with your guards and winked at roving eye
    A thousand hidden cameras were searching cross the sky
    But they didn't see me pinch them from underneath their eyes

    So I've come for my award, I've come for my award
    I thought I'd come in person that's the least I can afford
    Let hands be shook
    Champagne poured
    Sentence ignored
    Yes. I've come for my award
    Jesus was my greatest accomplice
    Jesus was my greatest accomplice
    Jesus was my greatest accomplice
    Yes, I've come for my award

    Hairdryer, overcoat, telly, dot-to-dot
    Video, compact disc, there's nothing we forgot
    Whilst I was busy smiling my father got the lot
    I've come for my Award
