    [G]     [C]     [F]     [G]                  
I'm through with [G]standing in line to clubs we'll never get in
It's like the [C]bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win
This [F]life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to [G]be

I want a [G]brand new house on an episode of Cribs
And a [C]bathroom I can play baseball in
And a [F]king size tub big enough for ten plus [G]me

I'll need a [G]credit card that's got no limit
And a [C]big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna [F]join the mile high club at 37,000 [G]feet
I want a [G]new tour bus full of old guitars
My own [C]star on Hollywood Boulevard
Some[F]where between Cher and James Dean is fine for [G]me

    [G]     [A#]     [C]     [D#]     [F]            
'Cause we [G]all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in [A#]hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The [C]girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll [D#]all stay skinny 'cause we [F]just won't eat
And we'll [G]hang out in the coolest bars
In the [A#]VIP with the movie stars
Every [C]good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every [D#]Playboy bunny with her [F]bleach blond hair

    [D#]      [A#]      [C]      [F]              
I'm gonna [D#]sing those songs that offend the censors
Gonna [A#]pop my pills from a pez dispenser
I'll get [D#]washed-up singers writing all my songs
C F~
Lip sync em every night so I don't get 'em wrong


'Cause we [G]all just wanna be big rockstars

In the [A#]VIP with the movie stars
Every [C]good gold digger's gonna wind up there
Every [D#]Playboy bunny with her [F]bleach blond hair
And we'll [G]hide out in the private rooms
With the lat[A#]est dictionary and today's who's who
They[C]'ll get you anything with that evil smile
Everyb[D#]ody's got a drug dealer on[F] speed dial and
[A#]Hey, [C]hey, I wanna be a rock[G]star
[A#]Hey, [C]hey, I wanna be a rock[G]star
