I Wanna Be Somebody
W.A.S.P. Lyrics


You say you don't want to run and hide
A face that no one knows
And everyone you meet, you're gonna show
You're nobody's slave, nobody's chains are holdin' you
You hold your fist up high
And rule the zoo

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin' me
'Cause I, I got the guts to be somebody
To cry out

I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

You say you don't want to starve
Or take the table crumbs that fall
You don't want to beg or plead at all
You don't want no nine to five
Your fingers to the bone
You don't want the rock piles, bloody stones

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin' me
'Cause I, I got the guts to be somebody
To cry out

I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

(I want) shiny cars and dirty money
Lots of rock and roll
(I will) live in fame and die in flames
I'm never getting old

I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

I wanna be somebody
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be somebody

You say you don't want to run and hide
A face that no one knows
And everyone you meet, you're gonna show
You're nobody's slave, nobody's chains are holdin' you
You hold your fist up high,
And rule the zoo

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin' me
Cause I, I got the guts to be somebody to cry out

I want to be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I want to be somebody
Be somebody too

You say you don't want to starve
Or take the table crumbs that fall
You don't want to beg or plead at all
You don't want no nine to five
Your fingers to the bone
You don't want the rock piles bloody stones

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin' me
Cause I , I got the guts to be somebody to cry out

I want to be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I want to be somebody
Be somebody too

I want shiny cars and dirty money
Lots of rock and roll
I will live in fame and die in flames
I'm never getting old

I want to be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I want to be somebody
Be somebody too

I gonna be somebody
I gonna be somebody

You say you don't wanna run and hide
A face that no-one knows
And everyone ya meet, you're gonna show
You're nobody's slave, nobody's chains are holdin' you
You hold your fist up high,
And rule the zoo

Oh, you just got to be

Cause I, I got the guts to be somebody......to cry out

I wanna be somebody,

Back in 1984 when this was new (and I was 7 at the time), a kid on the bus was playing it on his boombox. I had no idea what it was, but I never forgot part of the chorus, which I could only remember as something like "feast on buddy boom." Fast forward around 30 years and I heard this on a music video special. (how did it take that long?!) I thought THAT'S THE SONG! "Feast on buddy boom" is "be somebody soon"! :o
