The Lyrics

This goes out to all those who hate cover artists!
I act like I don't hear you
When you're on the radio
I'm makin' sure I turn you off
'Cause I know you made my dough

We don't have to share the song
I'll just take the credit
If you say that it's not right
I just won't get it

So I want to be Jessica
With a fake claim to fame
She's my savior in this world
My urge to be the same

I never have enough time
To write my own lines
And that's why my whole career
Is nothing but a lie

Why not
Steal a Go-Go's song
Why not (Why not)
Act like it's not wrong
If I lose several fans
I won't care a lot
So why not
Why not

I always dress in Disney
'Cause they are the only ones
Who just ignored my lack of talent
And took pity at once

I keep getting more awards
More appreciation
'Cause they like my stolen words
Straight from the 'Go-Go's'


This could be the song for me
Oh, yeah
Maybe yes,
Maybe no
Take it right from the eighties
What I'm sayin' is
It's obvious I blow

I know that I'll never get to be a pop princess
Nowhere close to Spears or Simpson
So why not
Take a song that's been done
Why not
Have a little fun
Oh-It might seem wrong to you
But it's all right to me
So...why not
Why not
