"When I Get Famous" as written by and Jamie Paul Joseph Cullum....
There's diamonds hiding in my hands
They're gonna cut through the windows
Ain't no one messing with my plans
Right now my star is in limbo
Sit back and watch my scrawny frame
Invade your feelings
All the years you caused me pain
I've got some wounds that need healin

Well you were just too damn aloof
Wearing your Morrissey t-shirt
The kind of girl that's born for youth
Well that's a blessing and some curse
I tell you son beware of those
Who peak too early
Cause all that magic can't be froze
And now it's you who ain't worthy

So baby when I get famous
Everybody's gonna see
Oh oh oh
You never really knew me

Does it make sense to simplify
Now we're knotted in riddles
But I don't care, do you know why
The girls are falling like skittles
Whoever said you needed rights
To tame your beauty
I'll say goodbye to lonely nights
Girls form an orderly queue please

So baby when I get famous
Everybody's gonna see
Oh oh oh
You never really knew me

So given knowledge, given time
I'd take us out of recession
I'd tell the world that all was fine
And that there freedom's a blessing
Cause when I'm looking from the top
You'll all seem smaller
Ain't that what all us humans want?
To stand that little bit taller

So baby when I get famous
Everybody's gonna see
Oh oh oh
You never really knew me
