Alan G. – Who Wants To Be A Popstar? lyrics

Folks always tellin’ me, on the web you’ll find the key
Try social networking, so we all can see
You can be a big star, flash your online business card
They’ll see you near and far, practically for free

But I don’t know why people try to
Live just like an open book
Callin’ out their nasty secrets
Just to make you look?

Who wants to be a popstar?
Who wants to be famous?
Who wants to be on display all night and day
With cameras flashin’ bright

Who wants to hog the spotlight
Wearin’ clothes that are too tight
You can buy off the rack, and stay on track
To live an honest life

Who wants to be a popstar?
Oh oh, it just ain’t right

Folks always tellin’ me, get yourself up on TV
Live your “idol” fantasies, Be a superstar
It’s the new reality, shows about just you and me
People watch you eat an’ sleep, Fame’s no longer hard

Makes me mad when people run their
Mouths so loud into their cellphones
Everyone talkin’, no one listnin’
To their borin’ lives

Who wants to be a popstar?
Who wants to be famous?
Who wants to be on display, all night and day
Your scandals brought to light

Who wants to have the right nose
Just for strikin’ the right pose
Who says you can’t have enough of useless stuff
Just have an honest life

Who wants to be a popstar?
It just ain’t right

I don’t see why people need to
All compete for fame and fortune
Tellin’ stories overstuffed with doggone silly lies
But the crazy details make them stars in their own minds

Who wants to be a popstar?
Who wants to be famous?
Who wants to be on display all night and day
With cameras flashin’ bright

Who wants to hog the spotlight
Wearin’ clothes that are too tight
You can buy off the rack, and stay on track
To live an honest life

Who wants to be a popstar?
Who wants to be famous?
Who wants to be on display, all night and day
Your scandals brought to light

Who wants to have the right nose
Just for strikin’ the right pose
Who says you can’t have enough of useless stuff
Just have an honest life

Who wants to be a popstar?
Oh! It just ain’t right
