Becoming Famous

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
