So you want to be a rock n' roll star?
Well, listen now, hear what I say
Just get an electric guitar
And take some time and learn how to play

And when your hair swung right
And your pants get tight
It's gonna be alright

Well, then it's time to go downtown
To the agent man, won't let you down
To sell your soul 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 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
