Jon Astley - But Is It Commercial?



I'm out of my depth
Just filling a space
And everyone knows what goes on in my head
Is the height of bad taste
Hey, get a hold of yourself
You're not Rodgers and Hart
But you know that you've still got a chance
While they're calling it art

But is it commercial?
Bear it in mind or end up broke
But is it commercial?
If you ain't got a hook you ain't got a hope

I don't want to be Bowie
I don't want to be Byrne
But I will borrow from them
Because I've still got plenty to learn
Hey, you can flatter yourself
But try to be smart
If the man in the chair doesn't care
You are a thing of the past

But is it commercial?
Pretend that the words don't get stuck in your throat
But is it commercial?
If you ain't got a hook you ain't got a hope
Floating over a deep blue sea
Tropical islands around
We sit in the shade of a coconut tree
Watching the sun going down

But is it commercial?
You can miss the point and then miss the boat
But is it commercial?
Bear it in mind or end up broke
But is it commercial?
Was I out of the room when somebody spoke?
But is it commercial?
If you ain't got a hook then you ain't got a hope
Commercial?
I'll hang myself, just give me the rope
But is it commercial?
If you ain't got a hook then you ain't got a hope
