The Hangers-On

The Hangers-On

We love you for what you are
You’re special to us because you’re a star
We have everything you’ve ever done
We stake our claim to your company
No-one else can get past us
We’re your bodyguards because we love you like no other
You’re our claim to fame, you make our lives worthwhile

You have to love us because we make your living
We go everywhere we know you go
We know everything about you
You’re flattered by our love
Spend time around us, we can show you off
We’ll make you sing for us in public
You’re our claim to fame, you make our lives worthwhile
We’ll never let you go

Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And God forbid you ever disagree
Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And no wrong in us you ever will see

We’ll dress ourselves in emperor’s new clothes
Administrate your life
The more boxes we tick, the less you can say no
You owe us all your time
We’ll befriend everyone close to you
And bond with their families
And to Hell with the ones who shun us
They just don’t understand true love

And if you ever tell us to go away
You’ll pay the price with your reputation
We’ll call you, text you, abuse you
You’ll have no ground to stand on
How could you do that to true lovers like us?
You’d be lost without us
You’re better safe than sorry, my girl
We’ve staked the claim to your life blood

Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And God forbid you ever disagree
Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And no wrong in us you ever will see

For every abusive message we send
Our apology and flowers ensure no end
You have no way of escaping us
You’re bound to our loyalty
The whole world knows our love for you
We tell all our friends about you
Aren’t you lucky to have us in your life?
Don’t dream of escape, we’d never let you survive

Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And God forbid you ever disagree
Because we are the hangers-on
But to the outside world we can do no wrong
You’ll forever sing us your song
And no wrong in us you ever will see

We own your life
