One day I'm gonna be somebody
One day I'm gonna be rich
I'm Gonna say my prayers and work real hard
So that I never have to did a ditch
The only way I'd work in a car wash
Is if I owned the whole damn place
But if getting to the top means washing a car
I'd be scrubbin' with a smile on my face

CHORUS:

One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud

One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna stand out in a crowd
One day I'm gonna be somebody
Gonna make somebody proud

One day I'm gonna be a star
I'm gonna do whatever it takes
Why should I starve when I could be elsewhere
Making what the rich man makes
If I should die before I'm rich
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
But if I'm rich before I die
I'll have to work 'cause nothin' comes cheap!

CHORUS 2x

"Somebody bring me a mirror, so I can look at my cash"
"Somebody bring me a mirror, so I can look at my cash"

Prince and Morris: "We don't like New Wave!" (and hysterical laughter lol)
