I'd be really pleased to meet you if I could remember your name
But I got problems of the memory ever since I got a winner in the fame game 
I'm a citizen of Legoland travellin' incommunicado 
And I don't give a damn for the Fleet Street aficionados 
But I don't want to be the back-page interview 
I don't want launderette anonymity
I want my hand prints in the concrete on Sunset Boulevard 
A dummy in Tussauds you'll see
Incommunicado, incommunicado
I'm a Marquee veteran, a multimedia bonafide celebrity
I've got an allergy to Perrier, daylight and responsibility 
I'm a rootin'-tootin' cowboy, the Peter Pan, the street credibility 
Always taking the point with the dawn patrol fraternity 
Sometimes it seems like I've been here before 
When I hear opportunity kicking in my door 
Call it synchronicity call it deja vu 
I just put my faith in destiny - it's the way that I choose
But I don't want to be a tin can tied 
To the bumper of a wedding limousine
Or currently residing in the where are they now file 
A toupee on the cabaret scene
I want to do adverts for American Express cards 
Talk shows on prime time TV
A villa in France, my own cocktail bar 
And that's where you're gonna find me
Incommunicado, incommunicado
Sometimes it seems like I've been here before
When I hear opportunity kicking in my door
Call it synchronicity call it deja vu
I just put my faith in destiny - it's the way that I choose 
Incommunicado, incommunicado
It's the only way
