      About "So You Want To Be A Rock & Roll Star"

      Lyrics for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - "So You Want To Be A Rock & Roll Star"

      So you you want to be a rock 'n' roll star
      Then listen now to what I say
      Just get an electric guitar
      And take some time and learn how to play
      And when your hair's combed right and your pants fit tight
      It's gonna be all right

      Then it's time to go down town
      Where the agent men won't let you down
      Sell your soul to the company
      Who are waiting there to sell plastic ware
      And in a week or two if you make the charts
      The girls'll tear you apart

      The price you pay for your riches and fame
      Was it all a strange game
      You're a little insane
      The money that came and the public acclaim
      Don't forget what you are
      You're a rock 'n' roll star
