I wanna be a rock star and travel really far
And buy me a big expensive car
And make lots of money and find me a honey
And live in a nice big house where it's sunny
With a pool, I'll be cool
I'll always have a gig 'cause I'll be big
I'll have parties and friends and places to go
The only problem is, I play the banjo

Well I'm a post he haw mover
A folk adelic punk rocker and groover
A cross between Bella Fleck and Eddie Betta Vendetta
A with the drumming and the way I pick
I'll be an instrumental master with tons of new licks
And all the babes will love me, sell out shows
The only problem is, I play the banjo

[CHORUS:]

I play the banjo
I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)
Now, I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)

I'll have a Lear jet and a limousine
And everywhere I go, my fans will scream
"Hey Banjo Boy, we love you
And wish that we all could play the banjo too"
And you'll see me on the TV talk shows
With David Coen and Jay Leno
The only problem is, I play the banjo

I play the banjo
Now, I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)
I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)

I say hear me boys, hear my rhyme
Picking on my banjo all the time
I say hear me boys, hear my song
I'm picking on the banjo all day long
I say pick it
I say pick it

I play the banjo
I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)
I play the banjo, play the banjo, play the banjo
I play the banjo (I play the banjo)
