lyrics

This is the tale of celebrity glory
Rags to riches it’s the same old story
I don’t read on cos I can see
Your story’s just a picture printed on page 3

Is this the life that you’ve been striving for?
Is this the life that you’ve been dying for?
Is this the life that we all want for?
It’s not the life it’s not the life for me.

You’ve got the life – try 9 to 5 to survive.

Once upon a time in a world of headlines
A story is told of what you do at night time
Deny, refute, respect privacy – ‘You can’t prove it was me!’
Big Brother House and jungle pursuits
Tabloid tales about substance abuse
A role model once you stood so tall
But the cameras were there to capture your fall

This is the end, the end of it all.
Try 9 to 5 to survive.
