tempo:slow with a beat

well theres slim times when my words wont ryhme
and the hills i face are a long hard climb
i just sit cross legged with my old guitar
you know it kinda makes me feel like a rock n roll star

well it makes me laugh Lord it Makes me cry
And i think for once just let me get high
Let me get electric put a silk suit on
Turn my old guitar into a tommy gun.

And root, toot, shoot, myself to fame
Every kid alive gonna know my name
An overnight phenomenon, like theres never been
A motivated supersonic king of the scene.

I'll be a teenage idol, just give me a break
I'm gonna be a teenage idol, no matter how long it takes
You can't imagine what it means to me
I'm gonna grab myself a place in history
A teenage idol that's what i'm gonna be.

Well life is short and the world is rough
And if you're gonna boogie boy yu gotto be tough
Nobody knows if I'm dead or alive
I just drink myself to sleep each night.

And I pray to the teenage god of rock
If I make it big let me stay on top
You gotta but me loose from this one room dive
Put me on the ladder keep this boy alive.
