    Nobody knows me from Adam
    That's what I've been told
    Since back in the first grade
    When I was 6 years old

    I'm sick of being nobody
    It's too much to bear
    I'm tired of being faceless
    I must be Famous Somewhere

    I must be Famous Somewhere
    I'm going to Asia
    I'll try Indonesia
    Somewhere in Bolivia

    I must be Famous Somewhere
    I'm going to the Yukon
    I'll try Sweden
    Somewhere in the Ukraine

    No one gives me the time of day
    They won't buy me a beer
    Ain't been kissed in a coon's age
    Haven't had a date in years

    I'm sick of being John Doe
    Just someone in the crowd
    Such a drag that I'm unknown
    Gonna scream my name out loud

    I must be Famous Somewhere
    I'm going to China
    I'll try Australia
    Somewhere in Chile

    I must be Famous Somewhere
    I'm going to Iceland
    I'll try Tahiti
    Somewhere in Greenland

    Bridge..
    It's all about being famous and rich
    Not being a number, anonymous
    Got to be somebody who gives a damn
    Got to be somebody knows who I am

    First chorus

    Jim Colyer ascap

    Since Grade 1, people who don't know you tell you that nobody knows you? They would have to know you to say that wouldn't they? Jim, possibly the most curious lyrics since Bobby Goldsboro saw a big tree.


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    The person in the song must be the most unknown human on the planet. Even in Bolivia!!!
