    Lyrics

    ...Let's Go

    One man at the window
    one girl at the bar
    I saw the look of recognition
    when they know just who you are.

    I seen you on the TV
    I seen you on that show,
    you make the people crazy,
    and then you let them go.

    Before the show, we calm them
    we sympathize, we care,
    and the hostile folk we keep apart
    till the red light says "on air"
    did you see our leather lovers
    all tied up to the chair,
    did you catch those child molestors,
    noone else goes there.

    (the barry williams show) what a show
    disfunctional excess, it's all it took for my success
    the greater pain they endure, the more you know,
    the show will score.... SHOWTIME!

    Got the reputation of a surgeon, cause they cannot
    feel the cut, it looks so very simple, but it really is an art
    they call our studio "the hospital", making money from the sick
    we let people be themselves, there is no other trick

    "My lover stole my girlfriend"
    "Keep beating up my ex"
    "I wanna kill my neighbour"
    "My daughter's selling sex"
    "My S/M lover hurt me"
    "My girl became a man"
    "I love my daughter's rapist"
    "My life's gone down the pan"

    (the barry williams show) it's my show!
    disfunctional excess, it's all it took for my success
    and when the punches start to fly,
    the rating always reads so high!...SHOWTIME!
    the best TV you've ever seen,
    where people say the things that the really mean
    i hear my name, I hear them roar
    for the one more time, i take the floor
    just one more Barry Williams show,
    we are gonna take you where you want to go.... SHOWTIME!

    That girl has got no scruples,
    not a wrinkle on her face,
    you would not believe the plot she conceived
    so they'd let her take my place,
    well no man is an island, no man is a sea
    but this display of emotion is all but drowning me.

    Oh, what a show!
    Oh, what a show!
    what a show!
    The Barry Williams Show!
    it's my show!
    disfunctional excess

    come on down
    come on down
    come on down
