I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever, I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they're trying to find them

    Hmmm the 27 shouters below who have copied the first shout in the series obviously do have a problem saying what is on their minds. Hence the copycat shouts.

    "This is stupid but - not sure if she really thinks these things ( I hope not) or if she is making fun of fame.. anyway amazing song. :)" The fame IS a funny thing, I mean, people should get famous by doing something good and/or talented, not because this person is son of 'that-guy' or participated 'that-reality-show". Come on. Open your eyes and you'll see the truth in front of you. This is what all of us should do.
