Famous

Album: Beach House 3 (2017)
  • Everybody wants to be famous, yeah, yeah
    Everybody wants to be famous

    Everybody wanna make it
    Everybody tryna get somewhere
    Everybody wants attention
    Want you to know that they're standing right there
    So many stars, they just wanna be up there with them
    So they can shine bright and show the world how they fit in, yeah, yeah
    They want their name in the lights
    Wanna be on your flatscreen
    They wanna sign autographs, all the important things

    Everybody wants to be famous, yeah, yeah
    Everybody wants to be famous
    Anyway, anyhow
    They ain't worried 'bout who they steppin' on, no
    Just as long as they reach the top
    They don't wanna die nameless, no
    They just wanna be famous
    Yeah, they wanna be famous
    Ooh, they just wanna be famous

    Everybody wants to be accepted
    Accepted by all of your love
    Just a couple likes from you (you)
    Will be more than enough
    They don't wanna work all day, they wanna make it overnight
    Just to look good in public, you know they spend their last dimes

    'Cause everybody wants to be famous, yeah
    Everybody wants to be famous
    Anyway, anyhow
    They ain't worried 'bout who they steppin' on, no
    Just as long as they reach the top
    They don't wanna die nameless, no
    They just wanna be famous
    Yeah, they wanna be famous (wanna be famous)
    Ooh, they just wanna be famous (anyway, anyhow)

    They just wanna be around ('round)
    Everything that goes up, comes down (down, down)
    Everything that goes up, comes down (down, down)
    Still wanna be famous
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    Ah, ah, ah, ah Writer/s: DOMINIC J. JORDAN, JAMES M. GIANNOS, JASON P D BOYD, SASHA SIROTA, TYRONE WILLIAM GRIFFIN JR.
