The Lyrics

Aalmost the opposite of "Celebrity"
Don't call me a hero
I can only be a zero
Like Philbert the Turtle or young Hercules
I'll be looked past and hated, I won't be imitated
Just overrated and that really bothers me
All the eyes will roll
And all the peeps will leave
And there will be erruptions of disgust when performing

All that you will see is a Wanna-be
All that you will see is a Wanna-be

When I'm looking in a limo
They will roll up the window
And make me real sick of the uppity's
There's nowhere that I can go
To try and push my video
And there's this whiney-ness controling me
All the talk will stop
And all the peeps will laugh
It has always been the one and only trap

All that's left of me is this wanna-be
All that's left of me is this wanna-be

Lost my start
Losing the art
I'm outside the party
Smile and wait
Try to behave
Unhappy that they've
Made me a Want To Be

I could disapper into the great unknown
And everyone won't care since I am an unknown
And All that you will see is a Wanna-be
All that's left of me is this wanna-be
I will get in last and I will pay the fee
All because I'm writing these song parodies

That one had potential...a little dissapointing, though. Congrats on beating me for the first parody from this excellent album!
