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

And when your hair's combed right
And your pants are tight, it's gonna be all right

With time you go downtown
To the agent man, he won't let you down
Sell your soul to the company
They're all waiting there to sell plastic wares

And in a week or two, if you make the charts
The girls will tear you apart

What you pay for these riches and fame?
Well, it's all a vicious game, you're a little insane
What you get is the public acclaim
Don't forget who you are, you're a rock 'n roll star

Na, na na, na na na, na na
Na na, na na, na na na

Hey you, come here, get up
Ah, this is the era where everybody creates
Recognize my face? They call me broken glass
That's because of the sounds [Incomprehensible]

What you pay for all these riches and fame?
Well, it's all a vicious game, you're a little insane
Well, you're a little insane, oh a little insane
'Cause the thing that you gain is the public acclaim

Don't forget who you are, don't forget who you are
Don't forget who you are, you're a rock 'n roll star
