The Lyrics

I don't have anything against Shayne Ward, 'cause having won X-Factor, I don't believe he was actually given a choice of songs. And while he's tied in to his winner's contract, I expect him to churn out more (as the song goes) formulaic, cliché-ridden tripe... the sad thing is that people will buy this shi[TRANSMISSION INTERRUPTED...]
You've seen me on TV
You know my story
You know why I'm standing with
A smile
So please go
Buy this pile of slurry
So I can make it big
Make a pile

Well you know I won X-Factor
But that is not a sin
It proved that talent ain't a factor
In who's gonna win

I'm not here to make good music
I'm not here to just have fun
I'm here to make some money
And to get to number one
So I'll sing it like I mean it
Though it's driving you insane
I'm here for riches, wealth and fame
That's my aim

Now please go
Go and buy this record
'Cause I'll lose unless you
Choose, unless you
Lose unless you do
Well, my song was kinda ghoulish
But it's selling rather well...
So well

'Cause I'm here to make big money
Yes, I'm here for the hype
I'm here to trot out formulaic
Cliché-ridden tripe
I'll be here singing more songs
And they all will sound the same
I'm here to sing something so lame
That's my aim

And though it sounds absurd
Like I mean every word.. well, nearly
And it's hard to believe
That I'm singing this twaddle sincerely
Oh, yeah, well, really

I'm not here for Simon Cowell
I'm not here for... Simon Cowell?
Or for Sharon, or Louis
I'm here for a reason
And that that reason.. is me
So I'm here - if you don't like it
Then they're the ones to blame
I'm here to win in life's rich game
Yes I'm here get rich all the same
That's my aim
That's my aim

DKTOS, singer, situation, nor anything else (I spend most of my time underwater, grazing the sea grass), but that kind of thing goes on all the time, and you've sent it up well.

Well, I had to see how bad it was so I d/l the song. Pretty awful OS; I think the only way it could have been worse wasif he uses a love/of rhyming couplet. I take it from your opening comment this was a cover song - AmIRight? Favorite line: "Like I mean every word.. well, nearly". 5s.

My children have got the video of this from when he sang it on the X-Factor post-final thingie... and it gets more nauseating every time I hear it.
Red Ant - it may not have a "love/of" couplet, but IMO the "I'm here to win your heart and soul/That's my goal" more than makes up for it. Incidentally, I don't think this is a cover: I think it was written by some professional songwriter specifically for the person who won X-Factor. I just hope he's ashamed of himself (but the money was probably pretty good)
TT, Stuart and Rick: thanks for voting the sentiment without knowing the OS :-)
