    1. Wanna see me make it dance?

    2. “So what i want you to do now is bend over really far and sloowly take down your overalls”

    3. Public still refuse to adhere to social distancing guidelines whilst queuing to get into the local supermarket.

    4. “Be honest guys… does my bum look big in this race suit?”

    5. Young driver the subject
      Of paparazzi fantasy
      They want him so badly
      Knows what a star he’s to be
      Inside him there’s longing
      This guy’s an open page
      Focusing, he’s so close now
      This driver is half his age

      Don’t stand to close to me
      His teammates are so jealous
      You know how bad drivers get
      Sometimes it’s not so easy
      To be the teacher’s pet
      Temptation, frustration
      So bad it makes them cry
      Wet chicane, podium’s waiting
      His car is warm and dry

      Don’t stand so close to me
      Loose talk in the paddock
      To hurt they try and try
      Strong words in the stewards room
      The accusations fly
      It’s no use
      He sees red
      He starts to shake and cough
      Just like the old man in
      That book by ‘drian Newey

      1. We are the crowd
        We’re c-coming out
        Got my flash on, it’s true
        Need that picture of you
        It’s so magical
        Comments so fanatical

        Helmet and cap
        Garage meticulous
        Not sure why that strap
        Photo of Max before us
        It don’t have a price
        Ready for those flashing lights
        ‘Cause you know that Max I

        I’m your biggest fan
        I’ll follow you til ur dad slaps me
        Papa-paparazzi
        Boy, you’re a superstar
        You know that I’ll be
        Your papa-paparazzi
        Promise I’ll be kind
        But I won’t stop until that boy is mine
        Baby, you’ll be famous
        Chase you down til you turn to me
        Papa-paparazzi

        I’ll be your girl backstage at your show
        Velvet ropes and guitars
        Yeah ’cause you’re my rock star in between the sets
        Eyeliner and cigarettes

        Tyres are burnt
        Brake car and we turn
        Wet tyres of dry
        Purple sectors, so fast I cry
        Watching you my Samurai
        ‘Cause you know that Max I

        1. The economy might tank during a lockdown, but it won’t stop the creatives to become even more annoyingly vocal.

    28. “Lewis, Lewis … you’re gonna have to do a lot better than “Look behind you” to get past me. Did you really think that old trick was gonna work on me?”
