Ooh, Ooh

I Took My Baby On A Riverboat Cruise

And She Was Well Aware

I Was Excited By The Way The Things Could Have Been

Cause In It I Don’t Care

 

I Wore A Face No One Could Recognize [In Disguise]
Someone Called Out My Name
They Thought Of Taking Pictures Autographs [Then They Grabbed]
My Joy Has Turned To Pain

REFRAIN:   My Father Always Told Me
You Won’t Live A Quiet Life
If You’re Reaching For Fortune And Fame
I Feel The Pressure Setting In, I’m Living Just To Win
I’m Done In My Pain, Don’t You Feel It No Pain

 

It’s The Price Of Fame

You Pay The Price Of Fame

So Don’t Be Feelin’ No Pain
It’s The Price Of Fame

It’s The Price Of Fame

So Don’t You Ever Complain

I’m On The Cover Of A Magazine [What A Scene]
They Know My Every Moves
Just Sign Your Name On The Dotted Line [You’ll Be Fine]
That Always Bothers Me

Get In Your Car, You Wanna Take A Ride [Look Behind]

Someone Is Following You
You Try To Get Away You Turn Real Fast [But Too Bad]
They Know Your Every Move

REFRAIN:  My Father Always Told Me
You Won’t Live A Quiet Life
If You’re Reaching For Fortune And Fame
I Feel The Pressure Setting In, I’m Living Just To Win
I’m Done With All This Pain

Don’t You Ever Complain

It’s The Price Of Fame

You Pay The Price Of Fame

So Don’t You Ever Complain

It’s The Price Of Fame

You Pay the Price of Fame

So Don’t Be Feelin’ No Pain

 

It’s the Price of Fame

You Pay The Price of Fame

Father Never Lies, My Father Never Lies

My Father Never Lies

So Don’t Be Feeling This Way, Boy

 

I’d Like To Take Some Time And Get Away [Then They Say]

“Is That Boy Still Alive?”

The Week Is Nearly Gone You Take Your Pills [What A Deal]

Only The Strong Survive

 

REFRAIN:  My Father Always Told Me
You Won’t Live A Quiet Life
They Startin’ Wonderin’ Where Have You Been
I Feel Their Envious Look  At Me
With Their Mistaken Jealousy
I’ve Been Standing Here In My Shoes
And Then I Picked Up My Blues

It’s The Price Of Fame

You Pay the Price of Fame

So Don’t You Ever Complain

It’s The Price Of Fame

You Pay the Price of Fame

So Don’t Be Feelin’ This Way

It’s the Price of Fame

You Pay the Price of Fame

So Don’t You Ever Complain

 

The Price of Fame

You Pay the Price of Fame

My Father Never Lies, My Father Never Lies, Baby

My Father Never Lies

So Don’t Be Feeling No Pain, Boy
