We are the crowd
We're c-coming out
Got my flash on it's true
Need that picture of you
It's so magical
We'd be so fantastico

Leather and jeans
Garage glamorous
Not sure what it means
But this photo of us
It don't have a price
Ready for those flashing lights
'Cause you know that baby I

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

I'll be your girl
Backstage at your show
Velvet ropes and guitars
Yeah cause you'll know
I'm staring between the sets
Eyeliner and cigarettes

Shadow is burnt
Yellow dance and return
My lashes are dry
Purple teardrops I cry
It don't have a price
Loving you is cherry pie
'Cause you know that baby I

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

Real good
(We dance in the studio)
Snap, snapped
(That shit on the radio)

Don't stop for anyone
Were plastic but we'll still have fun!

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

    The song is about a lot of things, it´s inspired in the struggle of the fame and being famous, like the Lady D example of the consecuences of the Fame, because in a certain way, she die because of the fame, when she was in a high spotlight and then how her death brought more publicity, that´s why she put knife sounds in the camera snaps in her video at the beggining and when the paparazzis said "beautiful, beautiful" when she was lying almost death and nobody was helping! ..and also talks about the struggle of whether you can have fame (or great success) or love, because having both it´s like impossible.. ;)

    This song is clearly illustrating the parallel between crazed stalkers and comparing it to the the fanatical and pushy behavior of the paparazzi. Both leech around people and resort to dangerous and underhanded tactics to get close to the person they are pursuing. Which is quite fitting, really...considering paparazzi really are just legal stalker leeches in my opinion.

    I actually like this song. It has unique lyrics. (Although there are some parts that cross the line, I just remixed it and edited out some of the parts so it would be considered clean for my iPod.) And her voice sounds different. It can be about somebody following you, or you being paparazzi to another person (which is how I think of it as). Not bad, Lady Gaga. If only more of your songs were like this.
