Lyrics


Big Prize.

What am I? Some kind of big prize? Is that the reason you are here?
In the light of your keen eyes, I might blow it! That’s my fear.
Big prize, big prize, I should be tied with bow and ribbon.
Big prize, big prize, stop me leaping like a gibbon.

Never thought that I was important, except to me, myself and I.
My ego was lying dormant until you praised me to the sky.
Big prize, big prize, I feel like an 18 carat dumdum.
Big prize, big prize, help me sort out this conundrum.

I’m confused, it’s hard to reconcile the front-runner and also-ran.
Here am I, in your sweet smile, attention centre and nowhere man.
Big prize, big prize, I’m covered with confusion.
Big prize, big prize, I just hope it’s no illusion.

Am I alone in this dilemma? Or does everyone feel this way?
Which am I, angel or devil? Why does no-one ever say?
Big prize, big prize, I thought love just some ephemera.
Big prize, big prize, now I’m looking for the candid camera.

Here I am, come get your big prize. I’m confused but feel elation.
If I am the cynosure of all eyes I’ll try to rise to the occasion.
Big prize, big prize, gone up-market from plain run-down.
Big prize, big prize, it’s a drug without the come-down.
