Overexposed (P) - Poem by Ramona Thompson

A dark parody of Britney Spear's Overprotected

I want attention, fame, adoration
I crave the spotlight and love
I need.....the paparazzi


Say hello to the whore that I am
To be happy today
I'm gonna have to have my face and name
Seen through their perspective
24/7 all over the news
I like to make mistakes just to get some free publicity
And I don't care if you think I'm too damn overexposed
There's no other way
'Cause I'm addicted to the rush and power of my own fame
I am not ashamed
I'll take any chance
Rather you like it or not
Who are you to say what a girl like me can do
God sometimes I think I really do need some help


CHORUS


What am I gonna do next with my life?
(You will find out don't worry)
How will the judge react when he finds out I was out again all night?
Don't know
Don't care
(I just gotta do it my way)
I can't help the way I feel
I love it
Knowing that my life has always been this way
So overexposed


I'll tell you what I like
What I want
How I want it
And hell no I won't take any of your misguided advice
I won't stand corrected
The things you're gonna hear, you won't believe just how far I'll go
With my life so out of control
Here I am standing
Singing baby one more time
I'm overexposed


There's no other way
'Cause I'm addicted to the rush and power of my own fame
I am not ashamed
I'll take any chance
Rather you like it or not
Who are you to say what a girl like me can do
God sometimes I think I need some answers
So that at last I can get some help


What am I gonna do next with my life?
(You will find out don't worry)
How will the judge react when he finds out I was out again all night?
Don't know
Don't care
(I just gotta do it my way)
I can't help the way I feel
I love it
Knowing that my life has always been this way
So overexposed


I need fame...love....I crave that....spotlight


I need everybody to watch what I'm gonna
What I'm gonna, gonna
What I'm gonna do about my destiny
I say yes, yes....
Everybody come and watch what I'm gonna....do, do
I'm so obsessed
I just gotta have all you people watching my every move and nobody else's


What am I gonna do next with my life?
(You will find out don't worry)
How will the judge react when he finds out I was out again all night?
Don't know
Don't care
(I just gotta do it my way)
I can't help the way I feel
I love it
Knowing that my life has always been this way
So overexposed


I need everybody to watch what I'm gonna
What I'm gonna, gonna
What I'm gonna do about my destiny
I say yes, yes....
Everybody come and watch what I'm gonna....do, do
I'm so obsessed
I just gotta have all you people watching my every move and nobody else's


What am I gonna do next with my life?
(You will find out don't worry)
How will the judge react when he finds out I was out again all night?
Don't know
Don't care
(I just gotta do it my way)
I can't help the way I feel
I love it
Knowing that my life has always been this way
So overexposed
