Price of Fame

Advertisements
  1. I took my baby on a river boat cruise
    And she was well aware
    I was excited about the way that things could have been
    She said, “that I don’t care”

    I want a face no one can recognize, in disguise
    Someone called out my name
    They thought of taking pictures, autographs, then they grab
    My joy had turned to pain

    Father always told me
    You won’t live a quiet life
    If you’re reaching for fortune and fame
    I feel the pressure setting in
    I’m living just to win
    I’m down and in my pain
    Don’t you feelin’ no pain!

    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price of fame
    So don’t be feelin’ no pain!
    It’s the price of fame
    It’s the price of fame
    So don’t you ever complain!

    I’m on the cover of a magazine
    (what a scene)
    They know my every do’s
    “Just sign your name on the dotted line”
    (“You’ll be fine”)
    That always bothers me

    Get in your car
    You wanna take a ride
    (look behind)
    Someone is following you
    You try to get away you turn real fast
    (but too bad)
    They know your every move

    My father always told me
    You won’t live a quiet life
    If you’re reaching for fortune and fame
    And I feel the pressure setting in
    I’m living just to win
    I bled all this pain
    Don’t you ever complain

    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price for fame
    So don’t you ever complain!
    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price for fame
    So don’t be feelin’ no pain

    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price of fame

    Father never lies
    (price of fame)
    My father never lies
    My father never lies
    (price of fame)
    So don’t be feelin’ this way, boy!

    Hee, hee!
    Aaow!
    Do it!

    I’d like to take some time and get away
    (then they’ll say)
    “Is that boy still alive?”
    The week in village, thoughts of taking pills
    (what a thrill)
    Only the strong survive

    My father always told me
    You won’t live the quiet life
    You start to wondering where have you been

    I feel the envious look at me
    With mistaken jealousy
    Then stand here in my shoes
    And get a taste of my blues

    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price of fame
    So don’t you ever complain!
    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price for fame
    So don’t be feeling this way!

    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price for fame
    So don’t you ever complain!
    It’s the price of fame
    You pay the price of fame

    (Hee, hee)
    My father never lies
    (the price of fame)
    My father never lies, baby
    (the price of fame)
    My father never lies
    So don’t be feelin’ no pain, boy!
