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… 


Thank you Lady Gaga - for the “Applause”!!!
Couldn't have said it any better myself!!!
