Lyrics Perform This Way

My mama told me when I was hatched act like a superstar
Save your allowance buy a bubble dress and someday you will go far
Now on red carpets well
I'm hard to miss
The press follows everywhere I go
I'll poke your eye out with a dress like this back off and enjoy the show
I'm sure my critics will say it's a grotesque display
Well they can bite me baby
I perform this way
I might be wearin' Swiss cheese or maybe covered with
Bees it doesn't mean I'm crazy
I perform this way
Ooh my little monsters pay lots 'cos I perform this way baby I perform this way
Ooh don't worry I'm okay hey I just perform this way
I'm not crazy I perform this way
I'll be a troll or evil queen
I'll be a human jelly bean
'Cos every day is Halloween for me
I'm so completely original my new look is all the rage
I'll wrap my small intestines 'round my neck and set fire to myself on stage
I'll wear a porcupine on my head on a WHIM
And for no reason now
I'll sing in French excusez moi qui a pété
Got my straight jacket today it's made of gold lamé
No not because I'm crazy
I perform this way
I strap prime rib to my feet cover myself with raw meat
I'll bet you've never seen a skirt steak worn this way
Don't be offended when you see my latest pop monstrosity
I'm strange weird shocking odd bizarre
I'm Frankenstein I'm Avatar
There's nothing too embarrassing
I'll honestly do anything
But wear white after Labor Day 'cos baby I perform
Hope you won't think it's cliché if I go nude today
Don't call the cops now baby I perform this way
No reason I should regret all the attention I get
I'm not completely crazy I perform this way yeah
I perform this way hey
I perform this way hey
I'm always deviating from the norm this way hey
I perform this way hey
I perform this way hey
I'm really not insane
I just perform this way hey
