Let Me Entertain You

While it would have been tough for any single to follow the phenomenal success of Angels, Let Me Entertain You actually charted a position higher upon its release in March 1998 and remains a mainstay of Robbie's live show to this day.

Let Me Entertain You

Described by Robbie as a ‘party anthem’, Let Me Entertain You climbed to No.3 in the Spring of ’98, during the post-Angels whirlwind.

The song soon became his signature gig-opener.

Inspired by the Rolling Stones film, Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus, Robbie said:

“We watched Rock Circus and after that we went and recorded Let Me Entertain You.

When we started writing the demo there was a furious jungle beat underneath it, it was so hardcore it got me very excited, and I still get excited listening to it now.

It’s not really heavy metal, it’s more like camp rock opera!”

"It’s not really heavy metal, it’s more like camp rock opera!”

Lyrics

Hell is gone and heaven's here
There's nothing left for you to fear
Shake your arse come over here
Now scream
I'm a burning effigy
Of everything I used to be
You're my rock of empathy, my dear
So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Life's too short for you to die
So grab yourself an alibi
Heaven knows your mother lied
Mon cher
Separate your right from wrongs
Come and sing a different song
The kettle's on so don't be long
Mon cher
So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Look me up in the yellow pages
I will be your rock of ages
Your see through fads and your crazy phases yeah
Little Bo Peep has lost his sheep
He popped a pill and fell asleep
The dew is wet but the grass is sweet, my dear
Your mind gets burned with the habits you've learned
But we're the generation that's got to be heard
You're tired of your teachers and your school's a drag
You're not going to end up like your mum and dad
So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
He may be good he may be outta sight
But he can't be here so come around tonight
Here is the place where the feeling grows
You gotta get high before you taste the lows
So come on
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
So come on let me entertain me
Let me entertain you
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on come on come on
Let me entertain you...
