Fifteen Minutes ft Addie

Verse 1

You’re just a regular girl, in a regular job
Serving regular customers in a regular shop
On the surface you seem fine but inside you think
Deep down “There’s got to be more to life than this”
And there is – you could be anything that you please
And you don’t need skill, just the will to succeed
If you take my advice then you’re gonna go far
What’s my name? I’m Fame and I can make you a star
First off get on a talent contest on the telly
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve actually got any
Just tell a sob story that touches the crowd
And the judges are bound to put you through to the next round
You don’t even need to try and win the competition
Coz you’ve done enough already to secure your position
In all the magazines and the pages within
And this is where your plan for world domination begins

Chorus

When you dance with the devil you dance to his song
But a dance with the devil doesn’t last for long
When you dance with the devil you’re taking a chance
Coz when the music stops playing – so does the dance

Verse 2

Do some interviews so people know who you are
Enough to get you in the clubs and exclusive bars
Cos this is where you can really raise your profile
There’s paparazzi crawling everywhere – so smile!
The next step is to start dating a dude
Who’s at least the same, if not more famous than you
If he’s a rapper or actor then you won’t have failed
But a football player is really the holy grail
You’ve hit the big time now – you’ve finally made it
You’ve even got your own clothes line and personalised fragrance
You can’t go out without shades and a beanie
Or on holiday without being snapped in your bikini
But this is what you wanted – it’s nothing you can’t handle
And nothing says publicity, like a little scandal
So what hits the headlines the very next day?
A sex tape of you and your boyfriend’s best mate!

Chorus

When you dance with the devil you dance to his song
But a dance with the devil doesn’t last for long
When you dance with the devil you’re taking a chance
Coz when the music stops playing – so does the dance

Verse 3

Well that backfired I have to say
Who’d have thought that the public would react that way?
I mean the fact that he dumped you is no surprise
But I guess it’s coz he missed that penalty you’re so despised
Ah well there’s plenty more fish in the sea
Have a drink on me, in fact here – have three
Aw don’t cry, here wipe those tears right up
And take a couple of these, they’re bound to cheer you up…
Boy, what a difference a couple of months make
I hope you’re happy now – you’re still on the front page
But this time it’s all the wrong sort of attention
What were you thinking punching that toilet attendant?!
The court case took all the cash in the bank
Face it, you’re washed up – a flash in the pan
You had a good run but now it’s over completely
I gotta go – there’s a new boy band that needs me
