And so you want to be a rock 'n' roll star?
Oh listen now do what I say
And just get an electric guitar
Then take some time and learn how to play

And with your hair swung right
And your pants get tight, it's gonna be alright

Well then it's time to go down town
To the agent man, won't let you down
And so you sell to some company
Who are waiting there to sell plastic ware

And in a week or two if you make the charts
The girls will tear you apart

It's the price you paid for your riches and fame
Was it all a strange game? You're a little insane
The money, they gave and the public acclaim
Don't forget what you are, you're a rock 'n' roll star
