I’m Going To Be A Teenage Idol

Am Am G6 F / Am Am G6 F

Well there's slim times when my words won't rhyme
        C                  F
and the hills I face are a long hard climb
G                                        C  F  C
I just sit cross legged with my old guitar
            Am             G                       F7
You know it kinda makes me feel like a rock n roll star

Well it makes me laugh Lord it Makes me cry
      C                   F
And I think for once just let me get high
G                                  C F C
Let me get electric put a silk suit on
Am                  G               F7
Turn my old guitar into a tommy gun

And root, toot, shoot, myself to fame
Every kid alive gonna know my name
     D7            E7                          F7
An overnight phenomenon, like theres never been
F7                      G7         A
A motivated supersonic king of the scene.

Dm                  G    Dm               G
I'll be a teenage idol, just give me a break
         Cmaj7           Am       Dm                    G
I'm gonna be a teenage idol, no matter how long it takes
     Dm                     G
You can't imagine what it means to me
     Dm                     G            A7
I'm gonna grab myself a place in history
   F         Ab                 E7      Am7
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 you gotta 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.
