I'm a star in the light
I hear my name being chanted in the hall of fame
Giving way for pride and ego
To rise along the way

I'm a star that's alright
Walking the Isle of fame is my right
I do what I do, it's my pride
Why I do what I do?
I'll tell you why.

I do it for the love
Not for the fame
I do it for a course
Not to play some game
I do it to put smiles on your face

I do it to teach lessons
Not to mock masses
I do it for our stars
Who let fame into their pride
And now lost unto which cause they fight
I do it to preach the gospel
And not to insult people
I do it to build others from the interior
And not to feel superior

With all this being my pride
I do it to keep sane
In this large hall of fame.
