Twenty-First Century Trends (V-C Mix)

Story Behind The Song

An ad. came on the TV featuring the hook line of Mika's "Grace Kelly". I was listening, not actually watching the TV. I thought, That's great. I can do that! This is the shorter and more 'direct' version of "Twenty-First Century Trends". Now they're both

Lyrics

I'm not Elvis Presley, the Stones or Elton John,
But Rock 'n' Roll is my thing since 1961.
I am not old, I am just bold, with Twenty-First Century trends -
I may not be a star now, but I'll get there in the end!

Who's gonna go far? I am!
Who's gonna go far? I-I-I-I am!

Sitting on the sidelines and watching Mika rise -
I can do the same thing - to me that's no surprise.
Mika is great, that I will state, with Twenty-First Century trends -
And yes he is a star now, but I'll get there in the end!

Who's gonna go far? I am!
Who's gonna go far? I-I-I-I am!
This song came so fast into my mind -
It won't be the last little treasure that I find.
(If you see what I mean).

Sitting by the keyboard I write them all the while.
This one is a winner, I love the trendy style.
Going for gold, never too old, with Twenty-First Century trends -
And I will be a star now, 'n' I'll get there in the end!
Who's gonna go far? I am!
Who's gonna go far? I-I-I-I am!

Hooray, hurrah,
I'm gonna be a star!
Hooray, hurrah,
I'm gonna be a star!
Hooray, hurrah,
So la-la-la-la-lah! (And fade out).
