The Byrds: So You Want to be a Rock 'n' Roll Star
So, you want to be a rock and roll star? Then listen now to what I say: Just get an electric guitar, then take some time and learn how to play. And, with your hair combed right and your pants fit tight, it's gonna be all right.
Then it's time to go downtown where the agent man 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 paid 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 and roll star.
