This song is by Saint Etienne and appears on the compilation album Continental (1997).

Does it pay to be so good?
Spend my whole life doing all that pays.
He said I should, all the time.
See the people having all the big fun
That could be mine,
Should be mine.
Now I want to be a star.

For the girl who's got it made,
Living in Primrose Hill up party place,
To play Manet.
You and I, saw your face in magazines and told you,
I said you'd be mine, and you'd be mine.
Now I want to be,
Yeah I want to be a star,
A star.

Have time to think about it,
Told my friends a lot about it.
Had enough of their moody faces,
Don't love those untidy places,
I knew, I new, yeah.

Does it pay to be so good?
Spend my whole life doing all those things
They said I should.
Now I'm gonna be,
Yeah I'm gonna be a star.

Does it pay to be so good, to be a star.
I said, does it pay to be so good, to be a star.
I told you, yeah, I told you, to be a star.
You should have listened, to be a star.
To be a star.
