Lyrics

The life of the party, the toast of the town
friends through the grapevine
and no one can bring you down

If there's a ladder, you can climb it
stepping on the heads in the way
Always got your mind set
on being famous at the end of the day

Shallow martini soiree

That's what you get, you only see your reflection
That's what you get, you're ego gets in the way
That's what you get, you're the center of attention
You're destination's just a shallow martini soiree

martini soiree
shallow martini soiree

The mind of a countess, the body of a tart
Men think you're so fine, but no one can win your heart

You're watching from the sidelines
but you don't know you're not in the game
Only care for your time, no one better get in the way

Shallow martini soiree

That's what you get, you only see your reflection
That's what you get, you're ego gets in the way
That's what you get, you're the center of attention
You're destination's just a shallow martini soiree

martini soiree
