In my heyday young men* wrote to me
Everybody seemed to have time to devote to me
Everyone I saw all swore they knew me, once upon a song.
Main attraction, couldn't buy a seat
The celebrity, celebrities were dying to meet
I've had every accolade bestowed on me, and so you see.
If I never sing another song it shouldn't bother me
I had my share of fame, you'd know my name
If I never sing another song or take another bow
I would get by, but I'm not sure how.
Always posing, but you love it all
Though you have to learn to act like you're above it all
Everything I did the world applauded, once upon a star.
Framed citations, hung on every wall
Got a scrapbook full of quotes, I can't recall at all
There were times I felt the world belonged to me, and so you see.
La la la... but I'm not sure how.
