The Lyrics

Just in case some of you may have trouble figuring out this parody, it's about how fans and celebrities misjudge each other, and encourage the fan to trade places with the star and vice versa. Just to see how both halves live. Pretty clever huh? ;-)
You gotta take our place,
For once in your lives
You gotta fill our shoes,
Gonna see a difference
Gonna turn the tide

As all, your last dollars are gone
And your accounts are overdrawn
And your credit cards have been declined
We have fans filling the streets,
It’s us they’d love to meet
Wanting autographs to be signed
There just isn’t time to meet their needs.

It’s hard to stay on top, the tabloids never stop
The fans are out of control
The pen is mightier than the sword ya’ know
Looks like that we’re going nowhere slow
That’s why we want you to know

We’re staring at the fan in the mirror
We’re asking them to take our place
Then you tell us would your world be any different?
Would your whole life be, a basket case
(Would your whole life be, a basket case)
If the whole wide world would know your face?
(If the whole wide world would know your face?)

Most of our all stress comes mainly from the press
It’s time that you realize
That even though we are stars, just how lonely we are
We can’t avoid being paranoid, we wonder how we get so far

Can’t be loved for who you are, riding in fancy cars
And in the back of limousines
(Back of limousines)
We hide out in mansions like we’re kings and queens
But we don’t understand what life really means
That’s why we’re stuck in between
(Stuck in between!)

We’re staring at the fan in the mirror
(You!)
We’re asking them to take our place
(You!)
Then you tell us would your world be any different?
Would your whole life be, a basket case
(Would your whole life be, a basket case)
If the whole wide world would know your face?
(If the whole wide world would know your face?)

We’re staring at the fan in the mirror
(You!)
We’re asking them to take our place
(Take our place, you!)
Then you tell us would your world be any different?
Would your whole life be, a basket case
If the whole wide world would know your
(If the whole wide world would know your)
Face!

We’re staring at the fan in the mirror
(Fan in the mirror, oh yeah!)
We’re asking them to take our place
(Take our place!)
Then you tell us would your world be any different?
(Would your whole life be, a basket case)
(If the whole wide world would know your face?)
(You gotta fight the press, who don’t care what they write)
You just might lose your, your mind!
(Then you lose your mind!)

The fan, the fan, the fan, the fan
With the fan in the mirror
(Fan in the mirror, oh yeah!)
The fan, the fan, the fan
We’re asking them to take our place
(Take our place!)
You know, the fan
Then you tell us would your world be any different?
Would your whole life be, a basket case
(Would your whole life be, a basket case)
If the whole wide world would know your face?
(If the whole wide world would know your face?)
Oh yeah, yeah yeah

You gotta take our place
You gotta fill our shoes!
Come on!
(Place)
Step in our shoes
You know
Step into our shoes,
Yourself!
(Yeah! Take our place!)
You’ve got to see things our way!
You!
(Fan in the mirror)
You got to
You got to see for yourself
Yourself!
You!
(Yeah! Take our place!)
You know, we’ve got to be
The fan, the fan
(Fan in the mirror)
You’ve got to see for yourself
You get into movies, Come on!
Come on!
You got to
Speak up! Speak up! Speak up!
(Yeah! Know your face)
Speak up and make your speech now!
(Fan in the mirror)
You! You! You!
Aaow!
(Yeah! Take our place!)
Gonna make that change
Come on!
(Fan in the mirror)
You’re famous!
You’re famous!
You’re famous!
We know you
(Place)
Take our place.
Give me some V's and C's to autograph! Please don't make me have to ask you for them... :-(
