This Version:
  • So You Want to Be a Rock 'N' Roll Star
So you want to be a rock 'n' roll star
Then listen now to what I say
Just get an electric guitar
And take some time and learn how to play
And when your hair's combed right
And your pants fit tight
It's gonna be all right

Then it's time to go downtown
Where the agent men won't let you down
Sell your soul to the 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

What you pay for your riches and fame
Was it all a strange game?
You're a little insane
The money that came and the public acclaim
Don't forget what you are
You're a rock 'n' roll star
