Music: The Byrds So You Want To Be A Rock 'N Roll Star


The blueprint to becoming a rock and roll star.

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 will 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
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
