  • Good evening, children of cultural abandon
    You searched for a saviour, well here I am
    And all the best ones are dying off so quickly
    While I'm still here, enjoy me while you can

    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    The charisma’s non-negotiable
    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    I'm about to strip and you’re my pole
    We are so glorious
    Why not leave your job and come on tour with us?
    Before I drop dead and die

    Good evening, lovers of quality entertainment
    Good evening to the others that don’t know hit
    Even you will leave here with a t-shirt and a programme
    Got a house in LA, I’m still paying for it

    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    It’s just the tip but no one will know
    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    All the girls (Robbie!), the boys go (No!)

    You are magnificent
    Maybe come on stage and be a part of it
    I said maybe, baby, baby oh

    Come leave the life you’re living
    Show me the light you’re giving
    I’ll give it all then a little bit more, oh oh

    “He would sell his children
    For a hit in Belgium
    God knows what he’s done
    For a number one”

    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    Where the more you see, the less you know
    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    Where Eminem meets Barry Manilow

    I am notorious
    For making all the crowd sing the chorious
    I just made up that word

    Come love the life I’m living
    Bathe in the light I’m giving
    “He’ll give it all and a little bit more”

    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    I’m a volcano that’s about to blow
    Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
    This is how I’d like to say “Hello”
