The Lyrics

How does it feel to be
Ogling people through a keyhole?
People that are movie stars.
Some photos are grainy.
Does your telephoto shoot far?

"Far as the eye can see."

How does it feel to be
Ogling people through a keyhole?
As you pursue them everywhere.
Everywhere that they go?
How often can you see pube hair?

"Quite often it does show."

Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, fans drool.

Mags keep payin' money for quarry you bag; they make the news,
And they're not amused.

Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, fans drool.

How does it feel to be harassing beautiful people,
Who, naturally try to flee?
Unhappy, you might say.
They call you the paparazzi
Who'll you waylay today?

Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, man,
Paid to take the pix, fans drool.
Paid to take the pix, man. . . .

You captured the essence of photography's bottom feeders. Great job, man!
