X Factor

X (1)

 

Sharon dreamed of being a star

Singing songs, playing guitar

Supported by her backing crew

She’d strut her stuff in The O2

People would stare in the street

Fans would weep at her feet

Beyoncé would be her best mate

Bieber would pester her for dates

She’d have stylists and her own private chef

For Shazza there’d be nothing but the best

Her family knew there would be disaster

When she applied for the X Factor

Because in spite of all her dreams

Everybody knew it seems

That our Sharon was no Christina

In fact she sang like a hyena

They knew that Simon could be cruel

And Sharon would look like a fool

They tried to stop her, to no avail

And common sense would not prevail

As audition day drew nearer

She practiced in front of her bedroom mirror

Her da tried the direct approach

But Sharon seemed beyond reproach

Even though his words did sting

‘Sharon love you just can’t sing’

She flew to London on a mission

But didn’t get past the first audition

Our superstar wannabe

Never got onto  the T.V.

She came home sad and forlorn

Her hopes of stardom dead and gone

Back at work, pulling lager

No chance of ever meeting GaGa

But though she’ll never be Beyoncé

She’s got good friends and a fiancé

No Sharon will never be a star

But she  still sings and plays guitar

On Stephens green; case by her feet

You can hear her from O’Connell Street

And as far as the Three Arena

‘Cause she still sings like a hyena.
