Staying in again on a Saturday night
I'm gonna settle on the sofa and turn down the lights
I've got 900 channels, but there's nothing to see
No wonder everybody thinks they should be on TV

We all wanna be famous
Be our face on the screen
Read our name in the papers
Everybody wants to be on TV
Na na na na na na na na na na
Everybody wants to be on TV

Forget Audrey Hepburn
Forget Bettie Davis
I want to be known just for being famous
I can't act, I can't dance, I can't sing, can't you see?
But I'm young and I'm pretty and that's all that you need

We all wanna be famous
Be our face on the screen
Read our name in the papers
Everybody wants to be on TV
Na na na na na na na na na na
Everybody wants to be like James Dean

I want to be the star tonight
And complain about fame in a story I sold to the news
I wanna be the star tonight
Wanna make the front pages I posed to the boys in the nude

We all wanna be famous
Be our face on the screen
Read our name in the papers
Everybody wants to be like James Dean

We all want, we want to be famous
We all want to be like James Dean
We all want, we want to be famous
We all want to be on TV
(X2)

We all want, we want to be famous
We all want to be like James Dean

    Yes ^
    Plus they are all trying to be a katie price or any fake person that has enough money to buy their way into the entertainment industry.
    So most people in showbiz aren't famous because of anything good but because they feel more important than anyone else and they want to be loved by other people for nothing other than being rich/pretty/have no life. Etc)

    Expressing people's wishes to be famous for the sake of being famous rather to be known for being good at something
