Yo soy la fama
soy tristeza y sonrisa pagada
que con dinero se puede obtener
y escuchen por qué
doy placer y de regreso yo no pido nada
si es  trabajo llegar a la fama
y a la fama poder mantener.

No tengo amigos
y si un amor fácil lo consigo
así de fácil lo he de perder
Mi madre dijo: No creas ser un gran tenorio
pararás es un sanatorio
y allí fama todo has de perder.
 porque yo, yo soy la fama
soy aquel que la gente reclama
pero nadie puede comprender.
Escuchen yo, yo soy la fama
soy aquel que la gente reclama;
pero nadie puede comprender

Porque yo, soy la fama
soy aquel que la gente reclama,
pero nadie puede comprender.
