09 – Queen of the Cathode Ray

You hear a lot more about her than you ever her from her. Why is she so famous? What exactly is it that she does so well?. Nobody seems to know…

Lyrics

SHE’S THE QUEEN OF THE CATHODE RAY

PRETTY TO LOOK AT, NOT MUCH TO SAY
QUEEN OF THE CATHODE RAY
PRETTY TO LOOK AT, NOT MUCH TO SAY

Since she left high school
She’s never missed a beat
She’s an avalanche of photographs
With the fans all at her feet

The cameras flash, crowds amass
Don’t seek a reason why
As shallow as a contact lense
But such a tempting lie

CHORUS: REPEAT

When eloquence escapes her
She wears a fancy dress

When critics denigrate her
She’ll be posing for the press

She’ll last five years, maybe ten
Unless she dies quite young
If so you’ll hear how great she was
For all the years to come

Ahs

(bridge)

CHORUS: REPEAT
