Ladies and gentlemen, here's my disease
Give me a standing ovation and your sympathy
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again

See the Jean Genie on his high-wire act
At the back of his mind lies a suicide pact
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again

See the young men itching to burn
Waiting for their own star turn
Needing danger where war would do
If they can't let it out, they'll pick on you
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again
On fire again
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again

See Houdini and his underwater tricks
You were sitting at the front hoping his locks would stick
Watch Knievel hit the seventeenth bus
You got crushed in the souvenir rush
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again
I said, poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again

See the young men itching to burn
Waiting for their own star turn
Needing danger where war would do
If they can't let it out, they'll pick on you
Poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again
On fire again
I said, poor old Johnny Yen's set himself on fire again

Ladies and gentlemen
Here's my disease
Give me a standing ovation
And your sympathy

(Come on, somebody, finish him off please!
Put the poor fool out of his misery, will you?
Can't you see he's had enough?
Finish him off, somebody!)
