Lily Allen: It’s not me, it’s you

The Fear is a wonderfully sarcastic tune from quirky Lily Allen, she’s onto a winner.

Lily recently told MTV that she was nervous about making the video, in particular the required dancing.

“I wanted to do a dance routine, even though I’m not really doing a dance routine,” she laughed. “Other people are doing it, but I’m part of it. I think people are quite used to girls in this industry really being able to move in front of the camera, but I’m just rubbish at that kind of thing.”

Lily has also done a cover of Britney Spears’ annoying song, Womanizer.  Check it out here.  According to her latest blog post, Allen got in trouble for recording the cover and sending it to Mark Ronson for his radio show.

now some of you may be wondering why i covered “womanizer”, simple really, i love britney and i love the song , it wasn’t my intention for it to have whizzed round the world like it has, mark ronson asked me for something no one had heard to play on his radio show and womanizer was the only song i had as an attachment on my blackberry and i couldn’t get home to send him anything else in time. i had asked him to talk all over it so it wouldn’t get ripped, but he didn’t , thanks mark for getting me in serious trouble with my record company.

Click below the jump for the lyrics to The Fear.

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

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz 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

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars 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 its not my fault it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah we’re on to a winner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

[Bridge]
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

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear
