if this song came on the radio while you were driving off to work
Would you get past the first two lines or turn if off and smirk?
Thinking, “I knew that guy back when when he was something of a jerk.”
And he would hit on me as if our friendship had its perks.

Fame is such a funny thing we should all find an inner light
Cuz being something that you’re not isn’t all that bright

If my face appeared on that tiny screen as you were doing the dishes
Would you drop a cup and say, "Now isn’t that delicious
He said God answered his prayer, but told me they were wishes”
What other things did he profess that were utterly fictitious

Fame is such a funny thing we should all find our inner light
Cuz being something that you’re not isn’t all that bright

Last night I held her
And she was in my arms
I Kissed her
I kissed her behind
I kissed her behind her boyfriend’s back
Now her Boyfriends back

Maybe there are voids in our lives that only certain souls can fill
Am I a hypocrite acting the saint undermining your good will
The golden eared angel and silver-tongued Devil may ponder this:
What man in a weaker moment hasn't longed to be kissed?

Fame is such a funny thing we should all find an inner light
Cuz being something that you’re not isn’t all that bright
