Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Get up, put my makeup on, I know it's time to go
Sing along to a dumb pop song that they play on the radio
Time for a pic, 'cause I'm all dressed up
Don't make me look too typical
'Cause I'm ready for my close-up
I said I'm ready for my close-up

[Pre-Chorus]
One, two, three, oh c'mon let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh
One, two, three, oh c'mon let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action

[Verse 2]
I feel at home with my microphone turned up in the studio
Always know that it's time to go when we're done with the video
Time for pic, 'cause I'm all dressed up
Don't make me look too typical
'Cause I'm ready for my close-up
I said I'm ready for my close-up

[Pre-Chorus]
One, two, three, oh c'mon let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh
One, two, three, oh c'mon let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action

[Pre-Chorus]
One, two, three
One, two, three
C'mon let's go
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon let's go
One, two, three
Let's go
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon let's go

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
