  • Oh, how 'bout a round of applause?
    Yeah
    Standin' ovation
    Ooh
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    You look so dumb right now
    Standin' outside my house
    Tryin' to apologize
    You're so ugly when you cry
    Please
    Just cut it out

    Don't tell me you're sorry 'cause you're not
    Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught

    But you put on quite a show
    You really had me goin'
    But now it's time to go
    Curtain's finally closin'
    That was quite a show
    Very entertaining
    But it's over now
    (But it's over now)
    Go on and take a bow, oh

    Grab your clothes and get gone (get gone)
    (You better hurry up)
    Before the sprinklers come on (come on)
    Talkin' 'bout "Girl, I love you, you're the one"
    This just looks like a re-run
    Please
    What else is on? Oh, oh

    And don't tell me you're sorry 'cause you're not
    Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught

    But you put on quite a show
    You really had me goin'
    But now it's time to go
    Curtain's finally closin'
    That was quite a show
    Very entertaining
    But it's over now
    (But it's over now)
    Go on and take a bow

    Oh, and the award for the best liar
    Goes to you (goes to you)
    For makin' me believe
    That you could be
    Faithful to me
    Let's hear your speech out

    How 'bout a round of applause?
    A standin' ovation

    But you put on quite a show
    You really had me goin'
    Now it's time to go
    Curtain's finally closin'
    That was quite a show
    Very entertaining
    But it's over now
    (But it's over now)
    Go on and take a bow
    But it's over now Writer/s: Mikkel Eriksen, Shaffer Smith, Tor Erik Hermansen

  • Hannah from Chatham, NjI had a karaoke version of this song as my ringtone for months before i learned that it was a real song when someone sang it at a talent show. i had saved on my phone as bunnies hopping.
  • Julia from Princeton, KsI love this song, but you need to hear Lea Michele sing it. Not saying she sings it better, she just sings it good as well.
  • Valerie from None Of Ur Buisness!!, Bci LOVE this song soo much. Rihanna has such a good voice. it's so powerful. :D love everything about her and this song!
  • Beatlesfan64 from Dallas, Txthis song is about a girls point of view as her boyfriend is attempting to apoligize after being unfaithful. she sarcasticly informs him that his performance is entartaining and tells him to take a bow like he was doing a performance. So people who hate her shutup cause she rocks and this song is a good plot so shutup if you dont like her or tell it to someone else or dont say it to anyone cuz she can relate to anyone! my bro loves her hes gonna marry her if she had her old haircut cuz her new one sux! bye
  • Jasonsweird from Tokyo, Japantake that nasty comment off that song rox. shes my idol!any one he says she sux can kiss my bootie!
