Applause

Janis Ian

Applause, applause
Give the singer a chance
Treat her right, be polite
Maybe she will dance
Applause, applause
Give the singer a break
How much can you give?
How much can you take?

Give the singer a chance
Give the singer a chance
Anything to buy your soul
and maybe she will dance

Applause, applause
She'll stand upon her head
Applause, applause
She'll take you to her bed
and share with you the memories
of dreams she can't forget
Applause, applause - let's give the prize
to the little lady with the stars in her eyes

I'll sell my soul for a song
Pay the price and carry on
and share with you the memories
of dreams I can't forget
Of lovers I have met
Applause, applause - let's give the prize
to the little lady with the stars in her eyes

Applause, applause
Give the singer a chance
Treat her right, be polite
Maybe she will dance
Applause, applause
Give that singer a break
How much can you give?
How much can you take?

Give the singer a chance
I wanna give the singer a chance
Anything to buy your soul
and maybe she will dance
Maybe she will dance
Maybe she will...
