lyrics

Everybody wants to be a rock star
And after two weeks on the road, I'd say that's what we are
The day that I signed on I didn't know what it would be
But it's a famous rock star's life for me

But I cannot access Minecraft from the tour van
And I'm choosing between illness and not shaking hands
And I lost my iPhone charger back in Cleveland
But it's still a friggin' rock star's life for me

I feel like we've been driving for about seventeen years
Playing the same show every night in different rooms that smell like beer
The day that I signed on I didn't know what it would be
But it's a friggin' rock star's life for me

But the headliner keeps flipping tables and yelling at our fans
I'm so tired of my sister I could hit her with a frying pan
If I see one more Burger King I'm breaking up the band
But it's still a friggin' rock star's life for me

If I had a dollar for each good sound guy we had I'd still be broke
And I think I understand why all the famous rock stars smoke
But then there are those crowds that laugh at every joke
And it's still a friggin' rock star's life for me
Yeah, it's still a famous rock star's life for me
