So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star Lyrics

by The Byrds

So you want to be a rock and roll star
Then listen now to what I say
Just get an electric guitar
Then take some time
And learn how to play

And with your hair swung right
And your pants too tight
It's gonna be all right
Then it's time to go downtown
Where the agent man 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'll tear you apart

The price you paid for your riches and fame
Was it all a strange game? You're a little insane
The money, the fame, and the public acclaim
Don't forget who you are
You're a rock and roll star
