Dreamgirls – Fake Your Way To The Top lyrics

Thirteen years
Of solid gold platters
Rising costs
And cocktail chatters
Fat dj's
Stereophonic sound
The game of hits (chuckle)
Goes round and around

But you can fake your way to the top
Round and Around
(Try that part, right there, baby)

Lorell:
Round and Around

Fake your way to the top

Deena:
Round and Around
(Hey, well you fit right in there now didn't you sweetheart?)

You can fake your way to the top

Effie:
Round and Around
(shit, I knew you had it)

But it's always real, so real

Dreamettes:
Always so real!

When you're comin' down
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

I know what's happenin'
(Doo doo doo doo)
I've been around
(Doo doo doo doo)
Fakin' my way
(Doo doo doo doo)
Through every town
(Doo doo doo doo)
I'm makin' my livin'
(Doo doo doo doo)
All for my sound
(Doo doo doo doo)
And the game of hits
(Doo doo doo doo)
Goes round and around

Dreamettes and James Early:
And around and around
And around and around
And around and around
And around and around
And around and around
And around and around
And around and around

My name is lonely
(Doo doo doo doo)
Workin' hard on the road
(Doo doo doo doo)
Get away from this hard work
(Doo doo doo doo)
It's a heavy load
(Doo doo doo doo)

Time to bring up the lights - yeah
Let's see which one of these girls is going home
With Jimmy tonight
(Yeah)
I got a nice, warm bed waiting on ya

Alright now who wants to sit on daddy's lap?
(Hahahahaha - yeah)
Break it down now
(Yeah... Hey, yeah)
(Oh oo oh)

I faked my way to the top
(Round and Around)
Oh, yes I did
(Round and Around)
I said I faked my way to the top
(Round and Around)

O ooo
(Round and Around)
I faked my to the top
(Round and Around)
Oh yeah, Oh yes I did
(Round and Around)

But it's always real, so real
(Oh, it's so real)
When you're,
When you're comin' down

(Alot of ad lib)
