Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Get up, put my makeup on, I know it's time to go
Sing along to a dumb pop song that they play on the radio
Time for a pic, 'cause I'm all dressed up
Don't make me look too typical
'Cause I'm ready for my close-up
I said I'm ready for my close-up

[Pre-Chorus 1]
One, two, three, oh, c'mon, let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh
One, two, three, oh, c'mon, let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action

[Verse 2]
I feel at home with my microphone turned up in the studio
Always know that it's time to go when we're done with the video
Time for a pic, 'cause I'm all dressed up
Don't make me look too typical
'Cause I'm ready for my close-up
I said I'm ready for my close-up

[Pre-Chorus 1]
One, two, three, oh, c'mon, let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh
One, two, three, oh, c'mon, let's go
Let's make a video, oh-oh

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action

[Pre-Chorus 2]
One, two, three
One, two, three
C'mon, let's go, g-g-go
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, let's go
One, two, three, three, three, three, three, three, three
Let's go
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, let's go

[Chorus]
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
Action, I'm ready
Don't want to miss a frame
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action
I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're down
Lights, camera, action
Lights, camera, action, action

  • Poppy references the song in Titanic Sinclair's video "I Am Titanic Sinclair", where she tells Sinclair she is ready for her close-up.
  • The line "I feel at home with my microphone turned up in the studio" may be a reference to "My Microphone".
  • Poppy's outfit and egg bed from the video "The Poppy VR180 Experience" appear in the song's music video.
  • The outfit Poppy wears in the single artwork is the same one she wears in her video "I Love You So Much".
    • Though his face is not shown, the Commodore monitor pictured in the single artwork can be assumed to be Computer Boy, who also appears in "I Love You So Much". Another similar monitor appears in the video "Transmission" and the lyric video for "I'm Poppy", as well as the artwork for Blame Candy's debut EP.
