  • You live in a world of excess
    Where more is more and less is much less
    A day without fame is a waste
    And a question of need is a question of taste

    You're so flamboyant the way you look
    It gets you so much attention
    Your sole employment is getting more
    You want police intervention
    You're so, flamboyant the way you live
    You really care that they stare
    And the press deployment
    Is always there, It's what you do for enjoyment

    You live in a time of decay
    When the worth of a man is how much he can play
    Every day all the public must know
    Where you are, what you do
    Cause your life is a show and

    You're so flamboyant the way you live
    And it's not even demeaning
    You're so flamboyant It's like a drug
    You use to give your life meaning
    You're so flamboyant The way you look
    It gets you so much attention
    Your sole employment Is getting more
    You want police intervention

    Every actor needs
    An audience
    Every action is
    A performance
    It all takes courage you know it
    Just crossing the street well, it's almost heroic
    You're so flamboyant

    There you are, at another preview
    In a pose, the artist and you
    To look so loud may be considered tacky
    Collectors wear black clothes by Issay Miake

    You're so flamboyant the way you look
    It gets you so much attention
    Your sole employment is getting more
    You want police intervention
    You're so flamboyant
    The way you live
    You really care that they stare
    And the press deployment
    Is always there
    It's what you do for enjoyment

    You're so flamboyant

    You're so flamboyant Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER LOWE, NEIL TENNANT
