Perry, Katy - Fingerprints Lyrics




Voted most likely to end up on the back of a milk box drink
Looks like I'm letting them down
Cause seven, seventy-five isn't worth an hour of my hard work and time
When you can't afford half the shit they advertise
Oh I'm worth more then they ask for then the toe-tag generation full of regret
Oh I won't settle no, oh I can't settle

I wanna break the mold, I wanna break the stereotype
Fist in the air I'm not going down with out a fight
It's my life and I'm not sitting on the sidelines watching
It pass me by
I'm leaving you my legacy
I gotta make my mark
I gotta run it hard
I want you to remember me
I'm leaving my fingerprints
I'm leaving my fingerprints
I'm leaving my fingerprints on you

Representing you and me
Don't you wanna go down in history?
Rather then end up begging on the streets
Trading under table favors for a place to sleep
Cause I'm worth more then this so stop writing prescriptions for my Ritalin
I can't focus my attention

I wanna break the mold, I wanna break the stereotype
Fist in the air I'm not going down with out a fight
It's my life and I'm not sitting on the sidelines watching
It pass me by
I'm leaving you my legacy
I gotta make my mark
I gotta run it hard
I want you to remember me
I'm leaving my fingerprints
I'm leaving my fingerprints
Don't give up
Don't give in
Build your house on the rock
Oh not in the sand, in the sand, in the sand

It's my life and I'm not sitting on the sidelines watching
It pass me by
I'm leaving you my legacy
I gotta make my mark
I gotta run it hard
I want you to remember me
(I want you to remember me)
It's my life and I'm not sitting on the sidelines watching
It pass me by
I'm leaving you my legacy
I gotta make my mark
I gotta run it hard
I want you to remember me
Cause I'm leaving my fingerprints
I'm leaving my fingerprints
I'm leaving my fingerprints, in the end

    Voted most likely to end up on the back OK a milk box drink
    Looks like I'm letting them down
    'Cause seven, seventy-five isn't worth and hour of my hard work and time
    When you cant afford half the shit they advertise
    Oh I'm worth more then they ask more then the two-tag generation full of regret
    Oh I won't settle no, oh I can't settle
    I wanna break the mold, I wanna break the stereotype
    Fist in the air I'm not going down with out a fight
    It's my life
    And I'm sitting on the sidelines watching
    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me
    I'm leaving my fingerprints

    I'm leaving my fingerprints
    Don't give up
    Don't give in
    Because your arms on the rock
    Oh I'm not innocent, innocent, innocent, innocent
    Effortless and I'm sitting on the sidelines watching
    It pass me by
    I'm leaving you my legacy
    I gotta make my mark
    I gotta run it hard
    I want you to remember me

  14. LagiNaLangAko23

    Not exactly a fan but I miss this Katy Perry. Days ago I lost connection and ended up playing music stored in my laptop and found this and other classic Perry like One Of The Boys.

  15. Delpech Laurent

    Nothing punk in here...

  16. Emir Felipe Maldonado Rios

    Tus extrañas sensaciones expresadas en esta cancion. YAEL-FELIPE

  17. Hetenna Lavarski

    Hey Katy,

    Just stopping by to say hello. I'm a hiker. I've been hiking a few years now. And, wanted to let you know I've received special instructions to keep watch and care for you. Your pretty special to, God. Have a good night. I use an alias because it's a secret mission.

    Love,
    A Secret Admirer

    Nikki Baker

    Your fucking nuts, take some medicine for your schizophrenia

    LagiNaLangAko23

    @Nikki Baker I guess he's that guy that died in North Sentinel Island...

  18. lily lin

    Katycat forever❤️❤️❤️

  19. Francisco Almeida

    I feel happy and a little sad, these song is so good, reminds me Avril Lavigne. i wish there was 2 paralel katys-a pop superstar, and that weird rocker girl.

  20. BrigandOfBagnolo

    Sounds like Paramore, even the way she sings

  21. andrew carson

    I LOVE ALL KATY PERRY MUSIC HER WITNESS ALBUM SOOOO FUCKING GOOD

  22. Amr Daoud

    😳😀🔢🔠🔤🔄ℹ⏫

  23. Georges FOTIC

    I also miss this Katy Perry.. I think that this Katy will never come back..
    it was a very nice album.. something like the female poprock of the eighties..
    Farewell...

  24. jdgaff

    Nonetheless, this is a killer track and one of the many reasons I still admire her work.

  25. Marisa M

    this still goes so hard

  26. SmartFetus

    my first katy song, what a lovely woman

  27. Christana Janel Meñez

    This is the real POP😶🙃

  28. Seb H

    go back to your inner punk, Katy! this is sweet innocence!

  29. Anton Afenow

    Nostalgy

  30. TheGreatAndPowerfulDC

    I don't like Katy Perry that much. But this song is actually pretty great.

    Amr Daoud

    DCfnafTheGreatAndPowerful Blank then dont be on her chanel

  31. Bianca Comin

    I actually miss this Katy Perry, it's not that her music is trash now. But her songs back then were so much better.

  32. Nathan C.

    well thats depressing

  33. AngelTM

    Her music is trash now this album was the only good thing she put out

  34. Splat Grease

    why the fuck was a whole episode of yo-kai watch the AD at the start of the vid

  35. grarghov1

    someone mentioned earlier I think, but indeed, this album-closing song sounds like Paramore :)

    Lyren

    Well both fall into same genre (pop rock) soo :D

  36. Charlie C

    She was so much better back in the days

  37. ArrowHead Snipes

    why tho

  38. Macon A. Fortune

    I have so many beautiful memories and emotions whenever i listen to her old songs. The new katy is great too but i feel like this had more soul to it..She used to dress weird and have really punky concerts, now it's all about big, fancy, sexy like in your face shows..Production wise her music has improved but back then it was more her own thing, i guess. Now it's music corporations with their mainstream songwriters, producers and djs. Unbelievable how things change...

    Mila Mila

    Macon A. Fortune check back now. That new album Witness is pretty good but some songs aren't who she is... for instance the song "Bon Appetit" that's not who she is and I know it.

    Marysia Makris

    yeees!! I love our old Katy...

    LagiNaLangAko23

    The irony is heightened listening to this song.

    Matter?

    @Mila Mila I think Bon Appetit is one of her worst songs ever if not the worst. It shouldn't even be in the album. I'm not saying that because of the sexual topic although I don't like that topic, I'm saying that because the lyrics just suck! I've had enough of the food metaphors, it's nothing new and the lyrics are horrible in Bon Appetit! Birthday was good by the way. Also, I really like Tsunami, It's unbelievable on the ears, the metaphor is something new. So it's not the topic, it was really the approach that was just plain bad. Anyway Witness is a great album! Bon Appetit is the only song I dislike.

  39. Noahide

    Happy new year Katy.

  40. Elizabeth Bella

    Im so happy that Katy perry's new album is coming out in 2016... If you are a Katy Perry fan, go to www.facebook.com/favartistkaty and like it!!

  41. Penelope The Maze Running Tribute

    I LOVE HER I AM HUGED FAN

  42. This Charming LoveHound

    Back when she was pop-punk.

    Alejandro Sandoval

    TheUnderdog1026 So true!!! Mix with pop-rock as well. I really miss her like this. I wonder what made her change to just Pop?

    Reda Lhioui

    Pop-rock is now labeled as pop-punk?

  43. Marie V

    this Katy was the one I was addicted to.. She messed it up now.

  44. 劉亦芯

    I Love it?

  45. freetheproud

    omg she sounds SOOOO different now!

    Mila Mila

    freetheproud Lol listen to Witness now.

    Matter?

    I love changing, whats the point in being the same? Gotta have variety specially in music.

  46. i James

    I thought this song was Paramore's.. But it's Katy.. She sounds like Haley.. XD LOLZ

    Paulo Peralta

    +Jam Rada Haley is in the same mind set katy is in this time in her life, im just think...

    noxdoubt861

    I thought the same thing, so despite the rude responses, you weren't alone

    Radioactiveherpes

    So typical
    Every girl in any rock genre is called Hayley
    Pathetic and sexist

    Noelia Romay

    😳😳

    arantxa

    Actually she doesn't sound like Marina to me, at all.

  47. Mad Noobly

    :DDDDDDDDD

  53. JP Miller

    more like a slap in my face

  54. Anne Lee

    i love this song i got her cd when it first came out but never paid attation to this song till now!

  55. Cryptix Crimefighter

    I swear I thought this was Pink when I first heard it... it sounds nothing like Katy Perry's pop stuff. It's still a great mood lifter, though.

  56. Michael Schmitt

    Katy should do more solid rock tracks like this!

  57. Ola Siale

    'Cause seven seventy-five isn't worth
    An hour of my hard working time
    When you can't afford half the shit they advertise



  58. kalliyah dejesus

    this makes me think of piper mc lean.

  59. Bruno Fuentes

    Amazing ;D
