LyricsEdit

I'm through with standing in line to clubs I'll never get in

It's like the bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win

This life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be


(Tell Me What You Want)


I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs

And a bathroom I can play baseball in

And a king size tub big enough for ten plus me


(Yeah, so what 'cha need?)


I need a, a credit card that's got no limit

And a big black jet with a bedroom in it

Gonna join the mile high club at thirty seven thousand feet


(Been there, done that)


I wanna new tour bus full of old guitars

My own star on Hollywood Boulevard

Somewhere between Cher and James Dean it's fine for me


(So how ya gonna do it?)


I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame

I'll even cut my hair and change my name


'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars

And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars

The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap

We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And we'll hang out in the coolest bars

In the VIP with the movie stars

Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there

Every Playboy bunny with the bleach blonde hair

And well,

Hey Hey I wanna be a rockstar Well,

Hey Hey I wanna be a rockstar


I wanna be great like Elvis with out the tassels

Hire eight body guards that love to beat up ****oles

Sign a couple autographs so I can eat my meals for free


(I'll have a quesadilla, ha ha)


I'm gonna dress my **s with the latest fashion

Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion

Gonna date a centerfold that loves to blow my money for me


(So how ya gonna do it?)


I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame

I'll even cut my hair and change my name


'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars

And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars

The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap

We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And We'll,

Hang out in the coolest bars

With the VIP and the movie stars

Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there

Every Playboy bunny with the bleach blonde hair

Well,

Hey Hey I wanna be a rockstar

And we'll hide out in the private rooms

With the latest dictionary and today's Who's Who?

They'll get you anything with that evil smile

Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial

Well,

Hey, Hey I wanna be a rockstar


I'm gonna sing those songs that offend the senses

Gonna pop my pills from a pez dispenser

I'll get washed-up singers writing all my songs

Lip sync 'em every night so I don't get 'em wrong


Well we all just wanna be big rockstars

And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars

The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap

We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat

And we'll hang out in the coolest bars

In the VIP with the movie stars

Every good gold digger's gonna wind up there

Every playboy bunny with her bleach blond hair

And we'll hide out in the private rooms

With the latest dictionary and today's who's who?

They'll get you anything with that evil smile

Everybody's got a drug dealer on speed dial

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
