Hugh Laurie: Once again, Beck!

(The scale stage is once again shown before panning over to Beck and his band)

Beck: [ singing ]
"I'll clap my hands along, and rattle on like a vagabond
I'll rip my uniform, and bend the floor to the early mornin’
I'll save my best for last and after that don't even ask me
I'll shake your dollar bill, and spend it all before the bombs’ll kill me.

Clap hands, that's right
Clap hands, clap hands that's right
Clap hands clap-clap hands.

I'll take my broken bell, and make it ring like a million churches
I'll scratch that kind of itch, down in the ditch and switch my plates out
I'll drive to San Francisco, death to disco take my shirt off
I'll swim to Mexico, don't tell the mermaids where I'm goin’.

Clap hands, that's right
Clap hands, clap hands that's right
Clap hands clap-clap hands.

I'll clap me hands along, and rattle on like a vagabond
I'll rip my uniform, and bend the floor to the early mornin’
I'll save my best for last and after that don't even ask me
I'll shake your dollar bill, and spend it all before the bombs’ll kill me.

Clap hands, that's right clap hands, clap hands that's right
clap, clap."
