Now some people say that they don't want no fame,
Well integrity's nice but it won't get you laid,
And I do,
Want to get laid.
Give me a yacht and a place in the sun,
You can call me a sell out but that sounds like fun,
And I do,
Want to have fun.

I wanna be famous,
I wanna make lots of money,
I'm not being ironic,
I'm not trying to be funny,
I want groupies coming out of my arse,
But most of all I want validation at last.
(And I'm prepared to kiss Simon Cowell's flabby arse).

Now maybe I'm greedy or just self obsessed,
But I wanna see what Kylie looks like undressed,
Cus I do,
Want her undressed.
I'd eat at the Fat Duck every fucking day,
Blow my own trumpet - pretend that I'm gay,
Cus I do,
Sometimes act gay.

Give me some Botox or liposuction,
I'll build a mansion for Dad and for Mum,
Cus I do,
Love my old Mum.
Stuff me with cocaine 'til my eyeballs bleed,
I'll donate millions to Children in Need,
Cus I do,
Help those in need.

I've been writing songs now for twenty odd years,
It's getting me nowhere - it will end in tears,
And I do,
Want no more tears.
At forty years old I'm over the hill,
But I'll give you magic if you give me pills,
Cus I do,
Sometimes get ill.

The Victor Pope Band Edinburgh, UK

The Victor Pope Band were formed at the arse end of 2012 from the remains of Ginger and the Tramp, Sabai and The Woods. So in a way they're a kind of supergroup. They have been described as quality quirky pop punk, post-punk and sounding a little bit like Jonathan Richman. But I prefer to describe them as Nerd Rock. The real question remains, however, who is Victor Pope...? ... more
