Lily Allen - The Fear Lyrics

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
'Cause everyone knows that's how you get famous.

I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
I'm on the right track, yeah I'm on to a winner.

I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
And I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

Life's about film stars and less about mothers
It's all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn't matter cause I'm packing plastic
And that's what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it's not my fault it's how I'm programmed to function



Forget about guns and forget ammunition
'Cause I'm killing them all on my own little mission
Now I'm not a saint but I'm not a sinner
Now everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner

  1. H2C gaming

    I’m from the future where parkour on youtube had been demonetised there is a deadly virus and you tube has moved the comments to under the description 👋🏻

  2. Leo Guy

    Listening to this on the 16th of February 2020 ... such a futuristic song ... so powerful and true !!

  3. Aaron Maldini

    Hunger is a pseudoscience — we are learning to be slaves

  4. aryheen

    "And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless cause everyone knows that's how you get famous" ... this was in 2008 (12years before Instagram) ...

  5. Donald Brown

    The masonic tile floors and being taken over by the fear ...MK Ultra Monarch program.

  24. francisco rodriguez

    Lily got it right ... This is proof that humanity is going backwards in every possible way. Social media destroyed 50 years of advance in freedom of speech. Everybody gets offended now, every God damn topic is off limits. I´ll bet I´m offending someone right now.

  45. Dp.slayer

    2020 anyone?

  46. Sophie Vanderbilt

    I adore this song. Idk if it was on purpose to counteract our obsession with consumption, but I found it odd that she wore the same outfit for the whole video. I felt like the video needed a few costume changes to emphasize that disposable fashion vibe lol

  47. Benjamin Lumsden

    0:41 Who decided to include a belch in the dance routine?

  48. Gabriel Trentin

    I think I didnt get what the word "fear" is about in this song...

    3:07 - 3:08 hit the club like

  56. Isabel McNeill

    I resonate so much with these lyrics

  57. Karl Evans

    Still better tha 99% of songs out today. She is so underrated it's sad really. I wish this type of music was still being made today instead of all the crap songs we have nowdays. Rip real music we will miss u. Rip 2008-2020

  58. Joanaaa Anaaa

    2020 vibes... one decade later and still the most accurate song out there

  59. salamander sally

    What happened to pop songs where the lyrics were actually clever and timeless? I miss this golden age of pop music.

  60. Marcin Kuleta

    I have discovered her recently and I'm really happy about it ^^

  61. The Queen


    Lavania Del Rey

    The Queen YEESSSS it’s a shame she wasn’t so big here in America but I’ll never let her legacy die

  62. M.C.Martin Official Channel

    She got one thing wrong, life isn’t about fast cars, life is about expensive cars! But it’s ok, she’s a girl, society doesn’t expect her to know the difference

  63. Sharon Bertolli

    I love her

  64. ladiesman2048

    What's so explicit with this version?

    Karl Evans

    I think it's because at the beginning of the song she sing I want a fuck load of diamonds. That's why it's explicit so parents know if their children can listen to it or not depending wether it got swearing in it or not.

  65. jorge martinez

    She's so brttish :)

  66. shemaila aktaar

    2020 anyone?


    no, 2021

  67. blanche

  68. Noel Reason

    Absolutely beautiful track

  69. Laura Stewart

    "And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless cause everyone knows that's how you get famous" 😳 it's sad how true this is though

    Jasmine X

    Laura Stewart I know right 🤔


    She was trying to tell us something

    Señor Kaktusz

    *Cough, cough, Love Island...

  70. Bruno Dacruz

    Ive been obsessed with this song for years

  71. Re - Refref

    Its 2020 and still dont know whats right and whats real

  72. Dave Shields

    Love this song sadly I don’t give a shit for Lilly’s political views, and was a bemused when she apologised on my behalf at a Calais camp for refugees.

  73. الإسلام هو تحفة الشيطان

    _i'm not a saint but i'm not a sinner_

  74. M Humphreys

    Showed this to my teen daughter not the way to be a woman, or even a rebel, to be yourself, does not mean you have to conform to a bullshit ideal of self loathing, or buying crap that will mean nothing to you, or cheap relationships, that meat the same thing. I don't have all the answers, but damm ,she is right, think for yourself, respect yourself, have fun make memories, enjoy your time here, get in trouble one in while but don't hurt others.

  75. Andrei Chichizola

    I love these lyrics... And still listening to in 2020

    Rachyl Oconnor

    OMG I love her and her album

  76. Amina Zack

    2020 anyone?

  77. 9Spank9

    Who else says this sounds as good today as it did when Lily first did it? Who else likes the explicit version? She's one of the first Brits I've heard that didn't lose their accents singing! I LOVE this little lady!!!! I know I've watched this at least 100,000+ times! I played this video at my New Year's Eve party and the crowd went wild many thinking it was new!!! I augmented treble and bass thru amplification and you should hear this with many speakers! My neighbors were dancing to it in their house across the street! In fact, they insisted I replay it - we danced to it many many many times bringing in 2020! HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!!!The year we were in London we got to see her live - she's great and so animated in concert like this video! You GO LILY ALLEN!!!!!
