1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Five seconds of fame

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Five seconds of fame, you’re up on the big screen.
Yes, you, the one who can’t believe his eyes,
with silly hat and face all painted green.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The game itself is mundane and routine.
(The whistle blows more than you realise.)
Five seconds of fame, you’re up on the big screen.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It takes some time to lose your puzzled sheen
before you jump and holler with surprise,
with silly hat and face all painted green.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You shake the girlfriend till she bursts her spleen,
pointing wildly up into the skies.
Five seconds of fame! You’re up on the big screen!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But by the time she’s clued in to the scene,
the camera’s panned away to other guys
with silly hats and faces painted green.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 You hope it’s taped, and no-one wipes it clean,
so you can reminisce when old and wise.
Five seconds of fame, we were up on the big screen.
with silly hats and faces painted green.
