World of the Rich and Famous

This song is by Matthew Wilder and appears on the album I Don't Speak the Language (1983).

Watch out, you're gonna get it
Careful what you do
Millions of eyes are watching over you

Now you're a public figure
Everything you say
Come back and hit you on a ricochet

Welcome to the world of the rich and famous
Everybody knows every move you make
Livin' in the world of the rich and famous
People got you pinned as a heavy weight

Got to buy every seat in first class
Just to be alone
Business can wait, unplug the telephone, oh yeah

Here come the paparazzi
Now don't forget to smile
Honey, it's status, never out of style

Welcome to the world of the rich and famous
Everybody knows every move you make
Livin' in the world of the rich and famous
People got you pinned as a heavy weight

Now you're in the world of the rich and famous
Watch your face becomin' a household name
'Cause you're in the world of the rich and famous
You'll just have to learn how to play the game

Glamour
All the people that surround you
And the flashing moonlights that will blind you

Driver
At the door of your Mercedes
You're the brightest new star of the eighties

Hold on
The excitement's electric
A rocket that sweeps you away

Welcome to the world of the rich and famous
Everybody knows every move you make
Livin' in the world of the rich and famous
People got you pinned as a heavy weight

Now you're in the world of the rich and famous
Watch your face becomin' a household name
'Cause you're in the world of the rich and famous
You'll just have to learn how to play the game

Livin' in the world of the rich and famous
Welcome to the world of the rich and famous
Now you're in the world of the rich and famous
Welcome to the world of the rich and famous
Livin' in the world of the rich and famous
Now you're in the world of the rich and famous
