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

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

 G
I'll need a credit card that's got no limit
 C
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
 FG
Gonna join the mile high club at 37,000 feet

 G
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
 C
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
 FG
Somewhere between Cher and James Dean is fine for me

I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
C~
I'd even cut my hair and change my name

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