lyrics

I can tell you all the secrets of the original Black Cat
And I channel Marlene Dietrich by donning a top hat 
My voice has got so manly it couldn't get any lower 
And I'm never full dressed without a giant feather boa 

All my songs are awfully laboured, played in a gloomy key
I devote them to my lovers but I sing them just for me
I can fill a room each time I mount my ‘Unknown Divas’ show
But the only paying fans are people I already know

I'm a cabaret bore 
Yes I have to confess 
There isn't much more 
To me than a little black dress 
And my ego 
A whole lot of ego

I sacrifice myself each night I always die on stage
I open up my heart to you but lie about my age
After hearing sixteen ballads, you’ll be racing for the door
I reinterpret pop-songs, it’s never been done before

I'm a cabaret bore 
Yes I have to confess 
There isn't much more 
To me than a little black dress 
And my ego
Have I mentioned my ego?

Gay boys and lonely women 
Say my songs help them to cope 
Cause if I can make a living 
Then Christ anyone has hope (key change)

To be a cabaret bore 
I will never go away
It’s your duty to adore me
And to worship what I say
About my ego
Well what do you know?
More than Gary Barlow
Is this still the intro?
Let’s get on with the show
