  • Yeah
    Andy Warhol said, "In the future, everybody will be famous"
    No, he said, "Everybody will be world-famous for fifteen minutes"
    For fifteen minutes
    For fifteen minutes
    For fifteen minutes

    Gotta get up
    'Cause you know the world is waiting
    Can you keep up?
    Everyone you see is racing
    And you
    You know what you are
    It's true
    You will go far

    'Cause you've got the night
    To light up the sky
    Meteorite in front of every eye
    A shooting star
    Your fame is a flame
    And they watch you burn up, turn up
    Turnt up all the way

    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite (a shooting star)
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite (a shooting star)

    So here we go
    We're listening, what are you saying?
    Put on your show, oh-oh, oh
    Try to make it entertaining
    And you
    You know what you are
    It's true
    You will go far

    'Cause you've got the night
    To light up the sky (sky)
    Meteorite in front of every eye
    A shooting star (a shooting star)
    Your fame is a flame
    And they watch you burn up, turn up
    Turnt up all the way (all the way)

    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite (a shooting star)
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite
    Meteorite-ite-ite (a shooting star)

    'Cause you've got the night
    To light up the sky
    A meteorite in front of every eye
    A shooting star
    Your fame is a flame
    As they watch you burn up, turn up
    Turnt up all the way
    Yeah, you got to turn up all the way
    Yeah, you got to turn up all the way
    Yeah, you got to turn up all the way
    Yeah, you got to turn up all the way Writer/s: Allan Felder, Kamaal Fareed, Mariah Carey, Norman Harris
