Robbie Williams` “Millennium”

Along with rapper Will Smith and many others, Brit superstar Robbie Williams jumped on the Millennium bandwagon in the late 90`s. Williams` “Millennium” sampled more than heavily from John Barry`s Bond theme for “You Only Live Twice.”

Williams, a huge Bond fan himself, has been touted and rumored to succeed Pierce Brosnan someday in the 007 role. Meanwhile, composer John Barry denies giving permission to Williams to sample You Only Live Twice for his runaway hit.

We`ve got stars directing our fate,
And we`re praying its not too late, Millennium.

Some say that we are players,
Some say that we are pawns,
But we`ve been making money,
Since the day that we were born,
Got to slow down, `cause we`re low down.

Run around in circles,
Live a life of solitude,
`Till we find ourselves a partner,
Someone to relate to,
Then we`ll slow down, before we fall down.

We`ve got stars directing our fate…And we`re praying its not too late…`cause we know we`re falling from grace…Millennium.

Live for liposuction,
And detox for your rent,
Overdose at Christmas,
And give it up for Lent.

My friends are all so cynical,
They refuse to keep the faith.
We all enjoy, the madness `cause we know we`re going to fade away.

We`ve got stars directing our fate…And we`re praying it`s not too late…`cause we know we`re falling from grace…Millennium.

Come, and have a go, if you think you are hard enough,
Come, and have a go, if you think you are hard enough,
Millennium…Millennium!

We`ve got stars directing our fate…And we`re praying it`s not too late…`cause we know we`re falling from grace, Millennium.

And when we come we always come to late,
I often think that we were born to hate,
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes.

And when we come we always come to late,
I often think that we were born to hate,
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes.

We`ve got stars directing our fate…Millennium…And we`re praying its not too late…Millennium…`cause we know we`re falling from grace…Millennium.
