"Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous"

[ from the album "Don't Stop The Night" (1989) ]

Lyrics

When you're up
Everybody wants your babies

Photographs by the paparazzi
Joyrides in his Mazerati
Invites from every arty fashion victim
To every warehouse party

I'm not blind, I've seen you shine
When he's around
And I've watched all your desire
With fascination
Watched its satisfaction
And lying alone in bed I've read the book he sent us
'The Rules of Attraction' by Bret Easton Ellis

Fame, power, the love of women
I'm wrong the world is right
Stock, Aitken and Waterman
Margaret Thatcher and Sigmund Freud
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
When you're up everybody wants your babies

And where we lived could've been bigger
And what I earned a much higher figure
That didn't seem important, I'm a little disappointed
But I'm trying not to get bitter

I'm not blind, I've seen you shine
When he's around
And I've watched all your desire
With fascination
Watched its satisfaction
And lying alone I've read 'Success' by Martin Amis
And 'The Rules of Attraction' by Bret Easton Ellis

Fame, power, the love of women
I'm wrong the world is right
Stock, Aitken and Waterman
Margaret Thatcher and Sigmund Freud
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
When you're up .....

Fame, power, the love of women
I'm wrong the world is right
Stock, Aitken and Waterman
Margaret Thatcher and Sigmund Freud
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
When you're up .....

Goodbye to the 1980s

Who's going to love you, baby? Who's going to love you, baby?

Everybody wants your .....
Everybody wants your babies
When you're up!
