Lyrics[]

Final version[]

Pin-up girls at the roller derby
Take me down to Newark, New Jersey
American flags, blue, blue streamers
Everybody's laughin', the crowd is cheerin'

Baby, I've become someone
Baby, I've become
Baby, I've become someone
Not of this world, hey, yeah, yeah
Not of this world, hey, yeah, yeah

Dance at night back in Alabama
Christmas lights on my teal green trailer
American flags, blue, blue streamers
All the men are watchin', the crowd is screamin'

Baby, I've, I've become someone
Baby, I've become
Baby, I've become someone
Not of this world, hey, yeah, yeah
Not of this world, hey, yeah, yeah
Ooh

Prizes, prizes, a diamond tiara
Here’s to the girl with the blue mascara

I have a disco ball mind, lights flashin' all of the time
I have a disco ball mind
I wanna die, I wanna die
I wanna die, I wanna die
Ooh, uh, ooh

Baby, I've become someone
Baby, I've become
Baby, I've become someone
Not of this world, hey, yeah, yeah
Not of this world, ooh, mm
