lyrics

Little girl from a little home
Grew up on karaoke microphones
And her mummy and daddy say she'll be a star
But in life those words won’t get you far
And she'll keep singing all the songs that she likes
Stepping up to all those talent show mics
Oh yeah she’ll do anything to make her dreams come true

Sweet sixteen looking pretty mean
Certain she'll be a singing dancing queen
Oh she don't need school she's got that natural shine
She learns all she needs smoking by the train line
And all the boys say she's drop dead looking
But in her mind she's got her whole future cooking
Oh yeah she'll do anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next

Now she's 21 she should be having fun
Instead she's laiden with a stranger’s son
Now in a cut throat city money's hard to make
But a stranger at the bar says he can give her her big break
And so he says to step out on the streets at night
And like Roxanne, put on her red light
She's doing anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next

Who's that girl lying over there
The one face down with the silky hair
You can tell by her scars she's been through a lot
As the baby beside her’s screaming mummy wake up
She's beautiful she could have been a star
But it seems in life she didn’t get very far
I bet she did anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next
