Applause

Lady Gaga

I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong
To crash the critic saying, "Is it right or is it wrong?"
If only fame had an I.V., baby could I bear?
Being away from you, I found the vein, put it in here
I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
I've overheard your theory: "Nostalgia's for geeks"
I guess sir, if you say so, some of us just like to read
One second I'm a Koons fan, suddenly the Koons is me
Pop culture was in art, now art's in pop culture, in me
I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
Wooooo, touch, touch, wooooo
Touch, touch now
Ooohhhh, ooohhhh, ooohhhh
I live for the applause, applause, applause
I live for the applause-plause, live for the applause-plause
Live for the way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love
(I'll turn the lights out)
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch (Make it real loud)
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
(A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E)
Make it real loud
Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch
A-R-T-P-O-P
