by Molly Lambert (and David Bowie)
Fame, it’s not your brain, it’s just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane (sane)
“Fame” — David Bowie (mp3)
Fame, nien! its mine! is just his line
To bind your time, it drives you to, crime
Could it be the best, could it be?
Really be, really, babe?
Could it be, my babe, could it, babe?
Could it, babe? Could it, babe?
Is it any wonder I reject you first?
Fame, fame, fame, fame
Is it any wonder you are too cool to fool
Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
Got to get a rain check on pain (pain)
What’s your name?
Feeling so gay, feeling gay
