I was seventeen, you were working for Matthew and Son
The Beatles met the Queen and I wrote
I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine and oh no, is it so, is it so?

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, headin' 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 want 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
