This World Will Remember Me Song Lyrics
The men in this town
Live and die and are forgotten
And it doesn't seem to scare 'em.
I can't wait to get away.
Away from the drought
And the homeless and the hungry
Where they talk
Every hot and dusty day.
I don't intend to waste
My life 'round here.
I got it all mapped out.
If I can pull just three jobs a year
I'll be rich,
I'll have wealth and fame
Everyone will know my name.
"Pull three jobs?" What does that mean?
(Spoken) What do you think it means?
Just like Billy the Kid
And mister Capone
Every kid will idolize Clyde Barrow.
One thing young lady I guarantee
Is that this world will remember me.
Yes this world will remember me.
Don't you think it's time
That you lost that egg-stained apron
And wore somethin' made of satin
From a fine Manhattan store?
Yes I can see you
In a car with your own driver.
You are headed to your penthouse
That will overlook the shore.
Your face should be up on that silver screen.
You got that "It Girl" look.
I can't believe that you see that in me.
I always knew I'd be a star,
How intelligent you are!
We are wasted 'round here
We're too good for this place.
We weren't born to live
And die in Texas!
This is my plan- there's no plan B
And this world will remember me.
You and this world will remember me!
