If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the camera's here and the microphone and they wanna know
Oh oh oh oh
If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the crowd is here and the lights are on and they want a show
Oh oh oh oh

Yea, uh
A fresh cool young Lu Trying to cash his microphone check 2, 1, 2
Want to believe my own hype but it's too untrue The world brought me to my knees What have you brung you
Did you improve on the design Did you do something new
Well your name ain't on the guest list
Who brung you, you
The more famous person you come through And the sexy lady next to you
You come to
And then it hit me Standing outside of heaven waiting for god to come and get me
I'm too uncouth Unschooled to the rules And two gum shoe
Too much of a newcomer And too uncool Like Shadow and Lavelle I battle with it well Though I need a holiday like lady who song blue
Go back what ever you did you undo Heavy is heaven The devil on my two tons too

If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the camera's here and the microphone and they wanna know
Oh oh oh oh

And you better wear your shades The spotlights here can burn holes through the stage Down through the basement Passed the Indian graves Where the dinosaurs laid
And out through china Nearly misses air liners Magnified times five
This is pointed at the rhymer Ricochets off the moon and sets the forest a blaze Now that's important to say Cause even with all of that
Most of us don't want it to fade
We want it to braid Meaning we want it to grow Meaning we want it to stay
Like the governor called
And they told him to wait
Un-strap him from the chair And put him back in his cage
The audience ain't fazed And they ain't gone clap and they ain't gone praise They want everything back that they paid Cause they been waiting since ten to see the lights get dim


If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the camera's here and the microphone and they wanna know
Oh oh oh oh

So chauffeur chauffeur come and take me away Cause I been standing in this line
For like five whole days
Me and security ain't getting along
And when I got to the front they told me all of the tickets were gone
So just take me home where the mood is mellow And the roses are thrown M&M's are yellow And the light bulbs around my mirror don't flicker Everybody gets a nice autograph picture
One for you and one for your sister Who had to work tonight but is an avid listener Every songs a favorite song
And mikes don't feed back
All the reviewers say you need to go and see that
And everybody claps cause everybody is pleased Then they all take the stage and start performing for me
Like ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha

If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the camera's here and the microphone and they wanna know
Oh oh oh oh
If you are what you say you are
A super star
Then have no fear the crowd is here and the lights are on and they want a show
Oh oh oh oh
