"To Be Someone" as written by and Paul John Weller....
To be someone must be a wonderful thing
A famous footballer a rock singer
Or a big film star, yes I think I would like that
To be rich and have lots of fans
Have lots of girls to prove that I'm a man
And be no. 1 - and liked by everyone

Getting drugged up with my trendy friends
They really dig me and I dig them
And the bread I spend - is like my fame - its quickly diminished

And there's no more swimming in a guitar shaped pool
No more reporters at my beck and call
No more cocaine its only ground chalk
No more taxis now well have to walk

But didn't we have a nice time -
didn't we have a nice time
Oh wasn't it such a fine time

I realize I should have stuck to my guns
Instead shit out to be one of the bastard sons
And lose myself - I know it was wrong - but its cost me a lot

And there's no more drinking after the club shuts down,
I'm out on me arse with the rest of the clowns
Its really frightening without a bodyguard
So I stay confined to my lonely room
