[Verse 1]
Do you want to
Ride in a big limousine?
Tell me do you want to
Take a little bite of the fame machine?
If you wanna be discovered
End up on the cover of every star-studded supermarket magazine
You can do it
Stick right to it.
It could happen tonight.

[Chorus]
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's living the life.
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's taking a free ride.

[Verse 2]
Do you want to
Cut to the front of the line?
Baby, do you need to
See your name in lights just like the Hollywood sign?
Come on, we gotta work harder.
Fight the fight together.
Take it to the top.
We've got the winning team.
It's your moment.
You can own it.
It's the American dream.

[Chorus]
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's living the life.
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's taking a free ride.

[Bridge]
All day.
All night.
The camera's on and it never lies.
You're under
The spotlight.
Twenty-four seven til the end of time.
Whoa, oh.
You wanna be famous.
Whoa, oh.
You wanna be famous.

[Chorus]
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's living the life.
You wanna be famous. (famous)
You wanna be the one who's taking a free ride.

You wanna be famous.

Your song is on the radio.
Hot rotation video.
Bright lights, fan mail.
Pop-arazzi on your tail.
Tour bus, private jet.
Thinking big ain't failed you yet.
Just one thing you can't forget.
Takes more than just wanting it.
Aim high, never rest.
Put your passion to the test.
Give your all, never less.
Famous means that you're the best.
