  • When will I, will I be famous?

    Yes, you're suitably at one
    With your body and the sun
    Yes, you are
    You've read Karl Marx
    And you've taught yourself to dance
    You're the best by far

    But you keep asking the question
    Whoa, you're not supposed to mention, hey

    When will I, will I be famous?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that
    When will I see my picture in the paper?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that
    When will I, will I be famous?
    You keep asking me, babe

    You're a slave to fashion
    And your life is full of passion
    It's the way you are
    You've suffered for your art
    With the jogging in the park
    You know you should go far

    But you keep asking the question (ooh)
    Whoa, you're not supposed to mention
    (I'm not supposed to mention (yeah)

    When will I, will I be famous?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that
    When will I see my picture in the paper?
    I can't answer (I can't wait) I can't answer that
    Oh, I can't tell you when
    You'll see your name
    Up in lights
    When will I, will I be famous?
    You keep asking me, babe
    I can't wait

    You won't suffer in silence (suffer)
    You're a talent, you know that I've noticed (I've noticed)
    You'd like to be a legend (ooh, ooh)
    A big star over night
    Tell me, when?
    I can't answer your question
    I can't wait, it's driving me insane
    And your impossible impatience (impatience)
    Tearing at my brain

    It's tearing
    I can't take it, take it much more

    (When will I, will I?)
    When- when- when- when will I? Will I? Will I?

    When will I, will I be famous?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that
    When will I, will I be famous?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that

    When will I, will I be famous?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that
    When will I see my picture in the paper?
    I can't answer, I can't answer that

    When will I?
    When, when, tell me when?
    I can't answer, I can't tell you
    I can't answer that

    When will I, will I be famous? Writer/s: Nicholas Lynedoch Graham, Thomas Frederick Watkins
