Lyrics

Here comes the most famous newspaper stand, 
Keeping a date with a well known medicine man. 
They’ll deny their daily ration, 
They’ll deny their secret passion, but it’s true… 

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated 

At the fire skins and furs gather around, 
Taking in shots as the man fits into his gown. 
They’ll deny it’s more than fashion, 
They’ll deny that they look ashen, but they do… 

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated 

They’ll never say, Never state that they’re 
Less than okay, but 
They’ll always claim, Make it plain that 
If you’re dead we can go out and play 
If you’re dead then we can play 

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated 
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated
