The Time – Onedayi'mgonnabesomebody lyrics
One day I'm gonna be somebody, one day I'm gonna be rich.
I'm gonna say my prayers and work real hard, so that I never have to dig a ditch.
The only way I'd work at a carwash, is if I owned the whole damn place.
But if gettin' to the top means washin' a car, I'd be scrubbin' with a smile on my face.

One day I'm gonna be somebody, gonna stand out in a crowd.
One day I'm gonna be somebody, gonna make somebody proud.

One day I'm gonna be a star, I'm gonna do whatever it takes.
Why should I starve when I could be elsewhere, makin' what the rich man makes.
If I should die before I'm rich, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
But if I'm rich before I die, I wanna work 'cause nothin' comes cheap.

(repeat chorus)

Somebody bring me a mirror so I can look at my cash.

We don't like new wave!
