Hey you
Can I get your attention?
I could be in rehab
because it's just so cool

Come with me
Baby I can be your star
Hot mess bringing trashy back yeah
You live vicariously

I say say say say
Just give em what they want
Die for you and I won't come back
whoa whoa whoa

Hey boy
Tell me what you want from me
I'm about to cut myself
Just so you won't forget me
Self destruct... 5,4,3,2,1
Oh do you feel better now?
What a slap in the face

I say say say say
Just give em what they want
Die for you and I won't come back
I say say say say
Just give em what they want (so much better)
Ride this wave and I won't come back
whoa whoa whoa

whoa whoa whoa
Set myself on fire
While you all watch me burn
Poor little rich girl
Poor little rich girl now
Oh your time is almost up
Oh your time up

I say say say say
Just give em what they want
Die for you and I won't come back
Say say say say
just give em what they want (so much better)
Ride this wave and I won't come back

    General CommentIt's a parody of celebrities. The poor little rich girl thing reminds me of paris hilton. Rehab does too. celebrities do self-destructive behaviours so they will get noticed.
    It's making fun of celebrities, basically.

    General CommentYeah, The Vettes admit it's making fun of celebrities. I love it. The Vettes are saying most celebrities will fade out, and won't be remembered.
