Everybody wanna be somebody
Everybody wanna be somebody

Look a wha' a gwaan 'pon the acre
Every man a turn entertainer
I'm guessing, everybody wanna be somebody

Hollywood dreams get to Sonia
And so she pack up and fly out to California
Undressing, everybody wanna be somebody

If you catch up in a scuffle with a youngster
That want to build him name up as a gangster
Don't test him, everybody wanna be somebody

Who am I to defend or oppose this
Dread, if that's what they must do just to be noticed
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody

Don't deny a youth the opportunity
Just because him come from a certain community
No, everybody wanna be somebody

You see the likkle woman weh you have as helper
Give a helping hand, better you help her
Oh, everybody wanna be somebody

The big man weh drive him car
The juvenile weh a selling the Star
I'm saying, everybody wanna be somebody

Who am I to defend or oppose this
Dread, if that's what you must do just to be noticed
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody
More blessing, everybody wanna be somebody

Everybody wanna be somebody
