the b-list lyrics – the starting line

take another hundred names and put ’em on a list
and curse yourself for ever watching it
i’m looking to have to see it to the end
cause the fastest rat is always gonna win

you’ve gotta know to hustle to make it in this town
’cause compet*tion’s stiff as ever now
take another hundred and put it in her hand
present the prize and not the ambulance

you’ve got a certain spark,
you’ve got to show it off
what are you waiting for?
they’ve been expecting you
i’ve got the brightest spark,
don’t let them blow it out
what are you waiting for?
they’ve been expecting your call

she walks on red carpets all the time
in my eyes
others will scoff at her clothes coming off
they will talk, let ’em talk
because you’re giving them just what they want

harder than a drama, softer than a p*rn
oh come on, fill that purse a little more
you’ve got something special
put it on the air
humiliation pays well by the chair

you’ve got a certain spark
you’ve got to show it off
what are you waiting for?
they’ve been expecting you
what have you been waiting for?
they’ve been expecting your call

she walks on red carpets all the time
in my eyes
others will scoff at her clothes coming off
they will talk, let ’em talk
because you’re giving them just what they want
(giving them just what they want)
yeah, you’re giving them just what they want

he’ll do most anything
you’ll do most anything
for the camera
a mil for a wedding ring
a thou for embarr*ssing yourself
keep that camera rolling baby

what are you waiting for?
cause we’ve been waiting for you
oh, what are you waiting for?
they’ve been expecting your call

she walks on red carpets all the time
in my eyes, in my eyes
others will scoff at her clothes coming off
they will talk, let ’em talk
because you’ve given them just what they want
