Wikipedia has an article on
Fame makes a man take things over
Fame lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame puts you there where things are hollow

Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane

Fame, what you like is in the limo
Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
Fame, what you need you have to borrow

Fame, "Nein! It's mine!" is just his line
To bind your time, it drives you to crime

(Could it be the best, could it be?)
(Really be, really, babe?)
(Could it be, my babe, could it, babe?)
(Could it, babe? Could it, babe?)

Is it any wonder I reject you first?
Fame, fame, fame, fame
Is it any wonder you are too cool to fool?

Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
Got to get a raincheck on pain

Fame, fame, fame, fame
Fame, fame, fame, fame
Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame
Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame
Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame

What's your name?

(Get me some, fame)
(Now get-ah, fame)
