Fame (Van Morrison)

Oh fame, they've taken everything and twisted it Oh fame they say You never could have resisted it What's in a name And everybody's jaded by fame Oh fame again The press has gone and made another mess of it Oh just because they got So much invested in it But they say you're to blame it's your own fault 'Cos you got mixed up in fame Oh no don't believe all that old Andy Warhol guff It takes a lot more than 10 or 15 minutes That's just not enough To qualify you for Fame, you went beyond the boundries of sanity And every day you defy All the laws of gravity You ain't got no shame 'Cos you're just addicted to fame Oh no don't you buy none of that old Andy Warhol stuff It takes a lot more than 10 or 15 minutes That's just not enough To qualify you for Fame, they're already setting up your own Watergate Oh fame, that stalker out there is just filled with hate You'll never be the same 'Cos everyone's corrupted by fame Oh fame, they took away all my humanity Oh fame got to fight Every second of the day for my dignity It's a spectator's game And there ain't nothing fair about fame Oh fame, oh fame Oh fame say it again, fame They say you're to blame
