We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never get the call to turn on Cape Town’s flashing Christmas lights

Sometimes living out your dreams, ‘aint as easy as it seems
you really want to make it far, though you’re useless at Singstar
But there’s no need to lament, those that can’t sing can present
Liezel can’t have had it hard, reading her jokes off a card

Maybe presenting is our game, maybe we’ll find honest fame
unlike Proverb – that’s not even his real name

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never get a chance to bug our friends with our new bragging rights

And if presentings not for you, you could judge a song or two
just no comments based on race, or Unathi will take your place
No better job that you could do to get the nation behind you
‘cause any moment you feel led you could punch Gareth in the head

Perhaps judging’s our resort, because they must be running short
just take Randall – he looks like a tanned Voldemort

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never be a household name like what’s her face and the great Heinz

If all you really need is a catchy tune, we’ll be seeing you in Joburg very soon

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll only stand a chance if they still aren’t counting the voting right

We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (SA Idols on TV)
