When I Get My Name In Lights - The Boy From Oz/Original Cast Recording/2003 Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'll dance and I'll sing. I'll do anything
Just to get my name in lights
I've got to try to hit the heights
Now that I'm free as a breeze again
Old nimble knees again
And soon they'll all know my name
I'll have fortune and fame
When I get my name in lights
It can happen overnight in these modern times
So hold that front page
This boy was born to strut the stage
I tap and sing and play the pianuh
Splash my name across a big bright bannuh
And that's why
I won't let go 'til I'm on radio
And when they come to see the sights
That'll be my name spelt right lighting up Times Square
I'll sit on a flagpole
Whatever's the rage
Just to get my picture on the front page
Just to get my name in lights
Verse 2
So hold that front page
This boy was born to strut the stage
Verse 3
I tap and sing and play the pianuh
Verse 4
Splash his name across a big bright bannuh
Verse 5
And soon they'll all know his name
He'll have fortune and fame
When he gets his name in lights
That'll be his name spelt right
Lighting up Times Square
Verse 6
Just to get his name
Just to get his name
Just to get his name in lights
Verse 7
Just to get my name in lights
Verse 8
And soon they'll all know my name
I'll have fortune and fame
When I get my name in lights
It can happen overnight in these modern times
I'll sit on a flagpole
Whatever's the rage
Just to get my picture on the front page
Just to get my name
Just to get my name
Just to get my name in lights
