  • Someday I'm gonna be famous, do I have talent well no
    These days you don't really need it thanks to reality shows
    Can't wait to date a supermodel, can't wait to sue my dad
    Can't wait to wreck a Ferrari on my way to rehab

    'Cause when you're a celebrity
    It's adios reality
    You can act just like a fool
    People think you're cool
    Just 'cause you're on TV
    I can throw a major fit
    When my latte isn't just how I like it
    When they say I've gone insane
    I'll blame it on the fame
    And the pressures that go with
    Being a celebrity

    I'll get to cry to Barbara Walters when things don't go my way
    And I'll get community service no matter which law I break
    I'll make the supermarket tabloids, they'll write some awful stuff
    But the more they run my name down the more my price goes up

    'Cause when you're a celebrity
    It adios reality
    No matter what you do
    People think you're cool
    Just 'cause you're on TV
    I can fall in and out of love
    Have marriages that barely last a month
    When they go down the drain
    I'll blame it on the fame
    And say it's just so tough
    Being a celebrity

    So let's hitch up the wagons and head out west
    To the land of the fun and the sun
    We'll be real world bachelor jackass millionaires
    Hey hey Hollywood here we come

    'Cause when you're a celebrity
    It adios reality
    No matter what you do
    People think you're cool
    Just 'cause you're on TV Writer/s: BRAD PAISLEY
