Well, I guess I've been a long time
Workin' in the backline
Trying to make a song fit
When you know it never was mine

Two dollar high-heel shoes
And a honky tonk dress
In the rhythm and the soul reviews
I had a dream I guess, yeah yes

And I had to beat the stagefright
I had to cry all night
Trying to make a song fit
When you know it never was right

I said, "Girl, get up and
Get out of this mess
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success"

And all through the badlands
Rockin' on the bandstands
It's so hard in the barbands
When there's no one there who understands

Lady luck will pass you by
And she will never say yes
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight, gonna be an overnight success

I used to be a sweet little Rock 'N' Roll singer
Chasin' after fortune and fame
What's your story? What's your payola?
Me, I'm in the music game

Well I guess I've been a long time
Workin' in a backline
I'm tryin' to make a song fit
I know it never was mine

Eh, what can I tell you?
I made a break I guess
And now I'm an overnight sensation
Over, overnight, say I'm an overnight sensation

Over, overnight
Over, overnight
Over, overnight
Over, overnight

Over, overnight
Over, overnight
Over, overnight
Over, overnight

Over, overnight sensation
Over, overnight
Over, overnight sensation
Yeah, yeah, yeah
