I thank, eh
Ben Harper and Kim from the Fast Packs
Maybe? Kurt?, we're gonna play a song together here
Let's see how we work it out; we might have to rehearse for a second
And eh, (?????????? ) oja, for the first time in their lives they're being shy
Alright, listen up
I'm not shy

So you want to be a rock & roll star
Well listen now to what I say
Get yourself an electric guitar
Create a sound, learn how to play
And when it's set alight
And your pants are tight
It's gonna be all right

What you pay for these riches and fame
It's a vicious game
'Cause your out in space man
What you get is the? public acclaim?
Don't forget who you are
You're a rock & roll star

When you're ready to go downtown to see the? agent? man, he won't let you down
Sell your soul to the company
Gonna? see my fare?
Sell them plastic wares
And if you? pump your heart?
I wanna? leave us? and I wanna tear it apart

Oh then it's time to go downtown to the agent man, no he won't let you down
Sell your soul to the company
They are waiting there to sell plastic wares

Come here. Get up
This is no time to give up
Come here. Come on up
This is you chance to get on
Now come on up, come up, come up, come up

Ben Harper

Ben fucking Harper, right there, Ben Harper
Fast Packs, right there
Ouch
