So You Want to Be a Rock & Roll Star Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
And when your hair swung right
And your pants get tight
It's gonna be alright
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
And in a week or two
If you make the charts
The girls will tear you apart
Verse 5
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
