I just turned 19 for the 16th time
Posing with bottles of the finest wine
I'm only seen with people just like me
So rich that we get everything for free
Spouting politics from my limousine
Because you care — About the product in my hair
About the clothes I'm gonna wear
To the event where we congratulate ourselves

I wanna be a rock star for a day — I want my 15 minutes of fame
But I've got face that's made for radio — And my body's a disgrace
I wanna be a rock star for a day - I wanna get Botox in LA
'Cause I've got a face that's made for radio — And a voice that's made for... I don't know
But you'll love me anyway

So tell me, tell me, tell me — am I great?
Will you tattoo my CD cover on your face?
So do you wanna win a date with me?
We can talk all night about me, me, me? me?
Sitting by candlelight telling stories about my car
Because you care - About the product in my hair
About the clothes I'm gonna wear
To the event where we congratulate ourselves

I wanna be a rock star for a day — I want my 15 minutes of fame
But I've got face that's made for radio — And I never could get laid
So I wanna be a rock star for a day — I'm gonna get a porn star for a date
But I've got a face that's made for radio — And a voice that's made for... I don't know
But you'll love me anyway

All of my entourage can join my fan club membership
And get a year free for one friend and my autographed guitar pick
As for the ugly rumors they're all started by my publicist
And yes it's true — I was born on the moon and have 3,000 kids
My contribution to humanity is saying I'm part of it
And when I sneeze it's history — in a century you'll read about it
Because you care - so let's congratulate ourselves.

I wanna be a rock star for a day I want my 15 minutes of fame
But I've got face that's made for radio — And my body's a disgrace
So I wanna be a rock star for a day — Got implants everywhere except my brain
'Cause I've got a face that's made for radio — And a voice that's made for... I don't know
And my songs are kinda lame — Tomorrow you'll forget my name
But you'll love me for today — But you'll love me anyway
Yeah, ya love me anyway

    General CommentThis song's hilarious!
    Great to know there are still bands out there that care about how superficial the media is...
    So far this is the only Bumblefoot song I have, and I've listened to some samplers on their site, and I think I might like this band. Does anyone know where to download their stuff? Or I might as well just buy they're CD off amazon or smth...Can't find them around here tho, =/

    General CommentFeel free to contact me. I can provide you with links to several downloads and email you some songs if you'd like; I have the whole discography, even from the pre-Bumblefoot, Ron Thal days. =)
