    Let's go

    One man at the window
    One girl at the bar
    Saw that 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
    'Til the red light says 'on air'
    Did you see our leather lovers
    All tied up to the chair
    Did you catch those child molesters
    No one else goes there

    What a show, the Barry Williams show
    What a show,
    Dysfunctional excess
    Is all it took for my success
    The greater pain that they endure
    The more you know the show will scored
    It's 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'
    'I keep beating up my ex'
    'I want to 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'

    What a show, the Barry Williams show
    The Barry Williams show
    Dysfunctional excess
    Is all it took for my success
    And when the punches start to fly
    The ratings always read so high
    It's 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

    What a show, oh what a show
    On my show, the Barry Williams show
    It's my show
    What a show
    Dysfunctional excess
    Is all it took for my success

    The best TV you've ever seen
    Where people say the things that they 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're gonna take you where you want to go
    It's showtime

    Come on down
    Come on down
