"Famous" as written by Julian Peake, Ash Howes and Lisa Greene....
Hollywood Hills
Pocketful of shells
Sunset drag
I haven't even slept for days
Zone in
Something's gotta give
Might as well live it up
Until the fat lady sings

You want it
You got it
It's everything you dreamed of
'Cause I just wanna be famous
Be so fucking jaded
'Cause all the Playboy bunnies take my money from me
Show up at the Oscars
Forgot Dennis Hopper
The money is for nothing
And the chicks are for free
Yeah, I wanna be...

You can sleep all day
And still get paid
When the sun goes down
We'll do it all over again
'Cause when you're on a roll
They gotta let you go
Right through the back door
Let the games begin

You want it
You got it
It's everything you dreamed of
'Cause I just wanna be famous
Be so fucking jaded
'Cause all the Playboy bunnies take my money from me
Show up at the Oscars
Forgot Dennis Hopper
The money is for nothing
And the chicks are for free
Yeah, I wanna be...

I hope that it's everything that you dreamed about
Be careful what you wish for
Hope that it's everything that you dreamed
When everything's falling apart at the seams
And I know that you never believed in me
Don't ever let them fuck with your dreams

You want it
You got it
It's everything you dreamed of
'Cause I just wanna be famous
Be so fucking jaded
'Cause all the Playboy bunnies take my money from me
Show up at the Oscars
Forgot Dennis Hopper
The money is for nothing
And the chicks are for free
Yeah, I wanna be...

I just wanna be famous
'Cause fame is contagious
Now all the Playboy bunnies want more money from me
Show up at the Grammys
So loaded they ban me
The money is for nothing
And the chicks are for free

Yeah, I wanna be...
Yeah, I wanna be famous

    General CommentIIt's about alll these people wanting to be famous,and it's explaining what famous is being like.

    "I just wanna be famouse,be so fucken jaded."

    Show up at the oscars look up and it's happened. Is probly meaning you win awards.

    You Want It You Got It,It's Every Thing You Dreamed.

    The money is for nothing and the chicks are for free. But it might mean that famous people crash and burn sometimes too,

    "And I hope that it's everything that you dreamed about,
    Be careful what you wish for,
    Hope that it's everything that you dreamed,
    When everything's fallin' apart at the seams,"

    General CommentAs someone as said, Puddle of Mudd took the high society feel of Nickelback's "Rockstar" and did it 10 times better.

    I'm not necessarily a HUGE fan of either band, but I'll definitely be giving their new album a listen, because I enjoy this song a ton.

    Am I the only on, though, who hears, rather than "f-f-famous" at the end, "I fucking hate myself"?

    General CommentWho said that puddle of mudd was dead?! I knew they would resurface with something great again. This song is the shit! I think it's basically about being famous isn't all what it's cracked up to be. Be careful what you wish for...
