Modern Fame

We are looking
for the next new star

Could it be you?
Is that who you are?

Accept our invitation,
be known across the nation!

The public’s imagination
will be caught
and charmed
by you


And then the paparazzi come,
to make you known,
to pound your drum

Until the public’s heart grown numb
and there’s nothing left
of you


Welcome to the world of fame,
now EVERYbody knows your name!
