The Lyrics

No, this is not sung by an Eastern European, vampire or otherwise. Well, somebody of Slavic descent, yes... And as far as I can tell, this is the first Brenda Lee song on the site other than variations on "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."
Unknown
so unknown that I could cry
I want to be vaunted.
Unknown
watching plaudits pass by
I want to be vaunted.

When I post songs
I want commenters all to five me.
When I've passed on
I want the laughter to survive me.
I want the people to applaud me and not jive me.
That's the way I want to be loved!

Unknown
just my troubled heart knows how
I want to be vaunted.
Right now
tell me how great I am right now
I want to be vaunted.

I want someone to tell me
what I do is worthy.
Just tell me that it's great
or nice or even smurfy.
Where is admiration
meant for me?

(Unknown!)
Just my troubled heart knows how
I want to be vaunted.
(Right now!)
Tell me how great I am right now
I want to be vaunted.

I want someone to tell me
what I do is worthy.
Just tell me that it's great
or nice or even smurfy.
Where is admiration
meant for me?
(Admiration!)
Meant for me!
So what's more pathetic: My pandering, or my desire for TLC from CZJ?

You want to be told how great you are: You're great. You're worthy. I'll five you.

As for the answer to your bottom comment, I believe this is more pathetic IMHO. After all, if the latter was more pathetic I would be pathetic as well.
