Fame and Fortune

This song is by Graham Coxon and appears on the album The Golden D (2000).

This song is a cover of "Fame and Fortune" by Mission Of Burma.
Fame and fortune, facts of life
Most of what makes it this useless try
So change the angle of the battle plan to hit the target
Fame and fortune fancy that
Nothing but rabbits coming outta the hat
So try and catch a falling star, crush it to dust
And stuck it down a jar, and throw it far away
Now the void is back to front, see through people
See through monuments, no reply

The beginning, happy ending, the beginning, happy ending
The beginning, happy ending (one goes up, one goes down)
The beginning, happy ending (one goes up, one goes down)

Smash your face against the wall
Blinded, facing to the ground, no no
Pretty faces on the wall, we fall
Piece a point disappear in the sky
Slack the ashes and make you do it right
Pretty faces on the wall, oh no no no

Fame and fortune is a stupid game and
Fame and fortune is the game I play
Fame and fortune is a stupid game and
Fame and fortune is the game I play
Fame and fortune is a stupid game and
Fame and fortune is the game I play
Fame and fortune is a stupid game and
Fame and fortune is the game I play, I'll play forever
