15 minutes of fame

Everyone wants to have
Their 15 minutes of fame

Either in movies, books
Painting or photography

I will always have my 15 minutes

I was loner as a child
Very close to my mother

Best known for my art
You’ll need a million bucks to buy it

I painted people that were as famous as the stars
Like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis

I will always have my 15 minutes

I painted a new type of Icon
And changed the way you view coca-cola and Campbell’s products

I became the muse for Velvet underground
The In crowd came to my factory to play

I lived in style
I was buried in style,
I wore a cashmere suit, a paisley tie, a platinum wig and sunglass.

I’m as bright as a peacock
I have many colors

Some people might say I was a little cuckoo
But I will always have my 15 minutes of fame.
