I have gotta
Stay this way
Do not care
Have it my way
Everything
Is mine to be had
I watch the MTV
See what music is cool
That how I choose
What to listen too

I'm a wanna be
What I wanna see
A music that isn't lyricallly deep
As long as you feed it to me
I wont dissapoint anybody
I'm why you make your money

It'll fade
As a trend today
Maybe tommorow
Who knows what will be popular
I'll be there
Whatever you say
I'll be there
I don't care anyway

I'm a wanna be
What I wanna see
A music that isn't lyricallly deep
As long as you feed it to me
I wont dissapoint anybody
I'm why you make your money

Must stay with the trends
Social dividends
No reason to think
We're told to
With shallow lyrics
Yea with meaningless lyrics
With default lyrics

I'm a wanna be
What I wanna see
A music that isn't lyricallly deep
As long as you feed it to me
I wont dissapoint anybody
I'm why you make your money

    General CommentThis song is so true. I hate all those wannabes who only like music because someone else likes it.

    General CommentI like this song but your writing pattern of being sarcastic gets kinda old.

    General CommentDude, you're a hypocrite. You write a song about people jumping on the bandwagon, but you're jumping on the bandwagon yourself. Everyone makes fun of MTV just because they play popular music. Sometimes MTV plays videos that are good, but they can't just play one type of music.

    General CommentMTV's focus is music for money... So many bands sell out to just increase revenue... tis a shame. MTV is just another way of destroying the true purpose of music, which is expression. Most of the stuff they play requires little to no talent.. and the lyrical quality of a teeniebopper. They may occasionally play something good, but thats just because it's "popular" at the time. Music isn't supposed to be a fad...

    General Commentmtv is the least of anyones problems .

    mtv is a company . a company looks to make $$ . how slow are you drones . just stop watching it .

    i will never understand how anti-mtv people know more about mtv than anyone else .

    you make no sense .

    General Commentzapho....: It's not a bandwagon if it's really how he feels. Anyway, the MTV bandwagon is much larger than any anti-mtv bandwagon, so that doesn't make sense. Plus, what exactly is he gaining from jumpin on this 'bandwagon' anyway?

    MTV can't just play one type of music? then how come they always seem to have rap/r'n'b videos playing?

    Nikkie just can't stop missing the point.

    General Commentum mtv does NOT seem to have r&b/rap playing. that ddoesn't make any sense. & how is it jumping on a bandwagon if a viewer of mtv really likes mtv's music. people should stop being so anal about music it's there for you to enjoy not to shy away from. i hate when peope say bands sell out. their job is to get paid to make music, what do you want them to do-live off ramen the rest of their lives to please you? it's so selfish of a "fan".
