Lyrics – Famous Pop Singer

Famous Pop Singer

Music: Kate MacColl / words: Kate MacColl, Freya Cirulis and Janell Cosco © 2010

Well I know I’ve got the talent to be at the top, and my
Dream is to be the Queen of Pop, I got
Melody and harmony, rhythm and rhyme, I am
Smart, I have plans, and I’ve had a sign that my
Life will be large, my life will be great, only
Thing going wrong is I’m 20 years too late …
I’m gonna tell you why I’m not a Famous Pop Singer and it’s
Not because I don’t sing pop, it’s because 9
Outta 10 photos are just plain bad, you see you
Gotta be young to be sold…

I could pull a Cyrano and film a video using
Models and actors, make a cameo
Let the music hit the charts, the world would sing along, no one
Really needs to see who is singing the song, with the
Right market plan they will take the bait only
I’ll know that I’ve passed the expiration date…
And I’ll tell you why I’m not a Famous Pop Singer, it’s
Not because I don’t sing pop, it’s because 9
Outta 10 photos are just plain bad, you see you
Gotta be young to be sold…

Well I can’t compete with Colbie or with Sara B., I got
Sags, I got bags, baby that’s just me
Won’t complain about the path I’ve been on ‘til now but I’m
Taking a turn, I will take my bow, gonna
Shine, gonna show that I’m just like new and the
Girls better stand back and learn from what I do…
Have I told you why I’m not a Famous Pop Singer? It’s
Not because I don’t sing pop, it’s because 9
Outta 10 photos are just plain bad, you see you
Gotta be young to be sold / yeah, you gotta be young to be sold / oh, you gotta be young to be sold…
when you’re a POP SINGER
