Pet Shop Boys The Former Enfant Terrible Lyrics

“Gimme a bandwagon and I’ll jump on it!”

“Gimme a bandwagon and I’ll jump on it!”

Pity him, the former

Enfant terrible

His career in aspic

Bent on pleasure

Gamely attempting

The tricky transition

From ageing outrage

To national treasure

“Gimme a bandwagon and I’ll jump on it!

A drum to bang and I’ll thump on it!

Criticism and I’ll dump on it!

If you don’t like it you’ll be lumpin’ it!”

He won’t rest while there are

Cameras around

He’ll start a quarrel

For the moral high-ground

It’s not enough to win a brace of top awards

He won’t be happy till he’s in the House of Lords

“Gimme a bandwagon and I’ll jump on it!

A drum to bang and I’ll thump on it!

Criticism and I’ll dump on it!

If you don’t like it you’ll be lumpin’ it!”

At self-promotion he’s a master

Although the midweek’s a disaster

They used to fix things so much easier

The good old days were fun and sleazier

Pity him, the former

Enfant terrible

His career in aspic

Bent on pleasure

Gamely attempting

The tricky transition

From ageing outrage

To national treasure
