Amateur Hour

This song is by Sparks and appears on the album Kimono My House (1974).

The lawns grow plush in the hinterlands
The perfect little setting for the one night stands.
The drapes are drawn and the lights are out
It's the time to put in practice what you've dreamed about.
Well she can show you what you must do
To be more like people better than you.

And amateur hour goes on and on

And when you turn pro you know
She'll let you know

And amateur hour goes on and on

And when you turn pro
You know she tells you so.

Girls grow tops to go topless in
While we sit and count the hairs that blossom from our chins.
Our voices change at a rapid pace
I could start a song a tenor and then end as bass.
So choose your partners everyone
If you hesitate the good ones are gone.
Amateur hour goes on and on

Dance, laugh, wine
Dine and talk and sing
But those cannot replace what is the real thing

It's a lot like playing the violin
You cannot start off and be Yehudi Menuhin.
So Amateur hour goes on and on.
