Song Lyrics - I Wanna Go Viral

I was dreaming again
It was just the other day
It was all in my mind
But I had a good time anyway

The lights were shining
I was the star of the show
Reaching out and slapping hands
I was the one they wanted to know

Why can’t I be famous?
When will I go viral?
Something needs to happen
To stop this downward spiral

I know my time is gonna’ come
There’s something inside
I just know I can do it
I'm ready for my rollercoaster ride

I’m so vain I have to laugh
I know the song is about me
Everyone else just rolls their eyes
While I imagine my fantasy

Why can’t I be famous?
When will I go viral?
Something needs to happen
To stop this downward spiral

Do I have to do something stupid?
Or commit some sort of impropriety?
I don’t need any talent
I just need some notoriety

I want my YouTube
I want to drink from the cup
Maybe I’ll just bang a drum
Until my fifteen minutes is up

Why can’t I be famous?
When will I go viral?
Something needs to happen
To stop this downward spiral

Asleep or just staring into space
That's when I become the one
Someday I’ll show you
I’m gonna turn work into fun

That's right
I wanna' go viral
I want you to look at me
That's right
I wanna' go viral
You're gonna talk about me
That's right
I wanna' go viral
I don't care how stupid I look
That's right
I wanna' go viral
I just need to find a hook

@Cogerson - it seems fame at all costs versus anonymity with dignity is the preferance these days....

So that's what it's called! Thought we were already on a roller coaster; just can't figure out if going up is where it's at or flying--comin' down doesn't work for me 'cause that's the spiraling down! Up, up, and away! To infect everybody! Blow some viral dust our way when you make it! Love this!

Once gone viral though, there's no going back. Now there's the rub. Nice song, catchy!

I just wanna be noticed by someone who can publish SOMETHING of mine. I have this big ol' collection of poems that get so much attention and hublove on here, yet I wonder if they'll ever go further than this website.

Nice one man haha

The poem says what we all want and I whish there was a faster way. But at least we have fun when we write:)

@Teylina - If I make it I'll say thank you to all my hubpages friends!!! There's plenty of dust for all of us!

@chspublish - that's true... the other night I was watching one of those "one-hit wonder" shows and they all seemed happy that they at least had one great thing that made the world stop and notice even if for only a minute. Hopefully if it ever happens it's in admiration and not for ridicule...

@Ben - I wonder the same thing but I think you already have produced enough work to be noticed. The thing is you are receiving accolades here from your peers and that has to feel good; I know it's rewarding to me. Poetry is a tough sell I think... maybe we all have to die then posthumous fame will be ours....

@Micky - thanks man... I don't want to beg but c'mon! I want my fame!!!!

@thoughtforce - thank you... that would be cool of course... I do have one video that's not on Youtube because I'm embarrassed but it's a video of me lip-synching Close To You by the Carpenter's... I'm not wearing a shirt and I give it my all! ha......
