Tabloids daily, titillate Each sordid tale reverberates All across the nation (What can I say?)Feed the reporter (It's a vendetta) Read the reporter A rumor then a vicious phrase A poison pen can wreck your day Beware the words that crucify As tabloid judges sharpen up their knives Read the reporter Black and white See the reporter Victimize See a poor sucker Crucified Distort the truth, go tell your lies Betray your friends and get the prize The dagger's in, now twist the knife The gutter's full of other people's lives
