Cat Stevens – To Be A Star lyrics

I was seventeen, ou were working for
Matthew and son,
(the) beatles me the queen, and I wrote
I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah, yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine,
Oh, no, izitso, izitso?
I never wanted to be a star, I never wanted
To travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart
I never wanted to be la-de-da, go to parties
'avec le bourgeois'
I only wanted to sing my song well,
So I could ring a small bell in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was on the road, sleeping between lorry
Lights, oh no
Stone-drunk and cold, heading into a bad
Night, yeah, yeah
Just another bean in the star machine, hi ho,
Here I go, here I go

I never wanted to be a star buy my mum a
Ferrari car
I only wanted to run my own race,
So I could win a small place in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nature found a way, it picked me up off the
Dark side, yeah, yeah
Showed me another day, it made me sing
'i think I see the light'
Not another bean in the star machine, oh no,
This time I won't go
I never wanted to be a star, I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart.
