Nickelback Rockstar

Day before yesterday while driving back home heard this song for the first time on FM Radio. Found the lyrics uber cool and the sound very retro rustic!

Watch the video from youTube:

Listen:
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Lyrics:

I’m through with standin in line to clubs I’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the nineth and I’m never gonna win
This life just 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 ya need?)

I need a a credit card thats 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 want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine with me
(So how ya gonna do it)

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

Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
Livin in hilltop houses, drivin fifteen cars
The girls come easy, and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny Cuz 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 their bleach blond hair

And well…
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
so I can eat my meals for free

(I’ll have a quesadilla haha)

I’m gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashions
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’d even cut my hair and change my name

Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
Livin in top houses Drivin fifteen cars
The girls come easy And the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny Cuz we just won’t eat

And we’ll hangout at the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold diggers Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy Bunny With their bleach blond hair

And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and Todays who’s who
We’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 censors
Gonna pop my pills From a pez dispenser
Get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip syng ’em every night so I don’t get ’em wrong

Well we all just a wanna be big rockstars
Live in hilltop houses Driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy And the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny Cuz 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 blond hair

And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and Todays who’s who
We’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
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
