(Verse One)
Sit tight I'm gonna need you to keep time
Come on just snap, snap, snap your fingers for me
Good, good now we're making some progress
Come on just tap, tap, tap your toes to the beat

And I believe this may call for a proper introduction
And well don't you see,
I'm the narrator and this is just the prologue

(Chorus)
Swear to shake it up if you swear to listen!
Oh, we're still so young,
Desperate for attention.
I aim to be your eyes,
Trophy boys,
Trophy wives.
(X2)

(Verse Two)
Applause! Applause!
No wait, wait.
Dear studio audience I've an announcement to make.
It seems the artists these days are not who you think,
So we'll pick back up on that on another page

And I believe this may call for a proper introduction
And well don't you see I'm the narrator and this is just the prologue

(Chorus)
Swear to shake it up if you swear to listen!
Oh we're still so young,
Desperate for attention.
I aim to be your eyes,
Trophy boys,
Trophy wives.
(X2)

(Music break)

(Synthesizers)

Swear to shake it up,
You swear to listen.
(X3)

Swear to shake it up...
Swear to shake it up!

(Chorus)
Swear to shake it up if you swear to listen!
Oh we're still so young,
Desperate for attention.
I aim to be your eyes,
Trophy boys,
Trophy wives.

Swear to shake it up if you swear to listen!
Oh we're still so young,
Desperate for attention.
I aim to be your eyes...

    I think its hilarious how their song really doesn’t relate to their lyrics name. I love Panic! At the disco. Their music always has a interesting beat and tune to it that I love.
