"Tryin to be me" by Tommy Lee is ridiculous!

Hey all,

The new Tommy Lee / CHAD KROEGER song about being famous is terrible....haha. I mean, I like the sound, but the lyrics are an absolute joke.

My wife and I were sure that it was some cheesy commercial jingle, until it went on - and on - and on - and on.... Unfortunately it wasn't a commercial....

I am sorry, but ANY song that has the words "Cell Phone Camera" in it is no song at all!!!!

here are the lyrics -- decide for yourself:

I pull out of the driveway
And head out on the highway
And I can see them in my rearview mirror
Hanging out the window
Snappin' a shot of me
So I pull into the fast lane
Nobody's gettin' past me
And I can hear the helicopters coming
Drivin' down the street is such a pain in the ass for me

And God I wanna know why
Whoever said it was painless
Should try and be famous
You know that I'm just livin' life
But nothing's for free
Lets see what they say first
Front page of the papers
Some days I find that even I
Don't wanna be me
Just tryin' to be me
Why don't they leave me the hell alone?

So I'm hanging out on Melrose
Watchin' all the girls go by
Then a hottie spots me
Sippin' on tequila
So happy to be alone
No need to call the paparazzi
'Cause they already got me
Everybody's got a cell phone camera
Walkin' down the street is such a pain in the ass for me

And God I wanna know why
Whoever said it was painless
Should try and be famous
You know that I'm just livin' life
But nothing's for free
Lets see what they say first
Front page of the papers
Some days I find that even I
Don't wanna be me

Just tryin' to be me
Just tryin' to be me
Just tryin' to be me
Why don't they leave me the hell alone?

And I'm just tryin' to be me
And I'm just tryin' to be me
And God I wanna know

And God I wanna know why
Whoever said it was painless
Should try and be famous
You know that I'm just livin' life
But nothings for free
Lets see what they say first
Front page of the papers
Some days I find that even I
Don't wanna be me

And God I wanna know why
Whoever said it was painless
Should try and be famous
You know that I'm just livin' life
But nothing's for free
Lets see what they say first
Front page of the papers
Some days I find that even I
Don't wanna be me

Just tryin' to be me
Just tryin' to be me
Just tryin' to be me


Anyone agree?


Rock on,

Matt!

For the best in unintentional comedy regarding Tommy Lee, listen to "Brandon" from the Generation Swine album.

Possibly the worst lyrics ever.

Guys, we are talking about Lee here. He makes Jessica Simpson look like a genius.
