The Vandals – Teenage Idol lyrics

Some people call me a teenage idol,
Say they envy me;
They got no way of knowin',
How lonesome I can be.

I need somebody to be my baby,
To tell my troubles to;
Got no time to find her,
Cause I'm just passin' through.

I travel around from town to lonesome town,
Guess all I'll be is a rollin' stone;
Fortune and fame, everybody knows my name,
That won't mean a thing if I'm all alone, woah!


I get no rest when I'm feelin' weary,
Pack my bags and go;
I gotta go tomorrow,
And go and do my show.

I wanna share myself, oh,
Just spread myself around with someone, anybody,
One of God's creatures-cause I'm so lonesome.
