Bourgeois Tagg — 15 Minutes In The Sun lyrics

Frankie was ambitious and lean
Then one day he turned a page in a magazine
And saw his own name written in big letters, big letters
Frankie thought everything was gonna change
He started thinking his hill was a mountain range
It was his 15 minutes, his 15 minutes in the sun

Everybody knows everybody goes big time sometime
Everybody gets 15 minutes in the sunshine

Frankie had a very short love affair
Just to make the fashion pages everywhere
So he could have something to show his children, and their children
Frankie gets to headline for tonight
But from then on he rents his own spotlight
He only gets 15 minutes, just 15 minutes in the sun
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/bourgeois-tagg-15-minutes-in-the-sun-lyrics.html ]
Everybody knows everybody goes big time sometime
Everybody gets 15 minutes in the sunshine
Everybody knows everybody goes big time sometime
Everybody gets 15 minutes and then bye-bye

All this stuff goes back tomorrow, make room for Mr. Next-In-Line
Now you know how Cinderella felt when it came pumpkin time

Just remember when your time comes around
Just remember that you're just a middle kid, and it's a hand-me-down
When it's your 15 minutes, it's your 15 minutes in the sun

Everybody knows everybody goes big time sometime
Everybody gets 15 minutes in the sunshine
Everybody knows everybody goes big time sometime
Everybody gets 15 minutes and then bye-bye

Just remember when your time comes around
Just remember that you're just a middle kid
