"She's Famous Now" as written by and Aaron Barrett....
I've got the measles and she got the mumps
I'm sick of waiting by the door in case she comes home
You won't believe it but don't you want to know

I let her go but I can't let her go
I don't want to hear it
I'm singin' too high tonight, I'm gonna lose my voice
I heard her on the radio don't want to sing along, but I've got no choice

She used to be my girl but now she's famous (she's famous now)
She used to be my girl but now she is famous (she's famous now)
She was just so sweet and now they're fallin' at her feet
She used to be my girl but now she's-

I eat the muscle and she eats the leaves
High cholesterol and heart disease yea
You'll never touch the way that I feel
Just for the record she got the deal
I don't want to hear it
I'm saying goodbye tonight, I just can't stand the noise

She's signin' autographs, don't want to say I know her but I've got no choice
She used to be my girl but now she's famous (she's famous now)
She used to be my girl but now she's famous (she's famous now)
She was just so sweet and now they're fallin' at her feet
She used to be my girl but now she's-

Well she's like me, just not as ugly
She used to be my girl but now she's famous (she's famous now)
She used to be my girl but now she's-
She was just so sweet
She was just so sweet
She was just so sweet and now they're fallin' at her feet
She used to be my girl but now she's-
Famous now

    General CommentI saw them at warped and they played this song... all I have to say is... pure gold. And there's nothing like giving a shout out to "my momma, my baby's momma, and my baby's momma's momma"... pure gold

    General Commentthis song is actually about a cartoon that aaron watched back in the day about a guy that goes of to be a space fighter pilot, and his girlfriend goes off and becomes famous without him. Aaron has said that it was about in an interview in 98, but there is a rumor it is about the Bassist Matt Wong's relationship with Monique Powell from save ferris.

    General CommentAaron claimed on Our Live Album Is Better Than Your Live Album that this song was about him going out with Gwen Stefani. Although it's quite possible, since they were both in CA ska bands in the early/mid 90's and Reel Big Fish remained relatively unknown while No Doubt went on to become...well, No Doubt. Anyone know anything about this?

    General CommentAaron in an interview said he was just trying to start a rumor

    link: newu.uci.edu/…

    In his live shows he says it's about Gwen Steffani, so he's still trying to spread the rumor.
