Lyrics - Rock 'N' Roll Singer

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album T.N.T.

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia


Released in 1975

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

My daddy was workin' nine to five
When my momma was havin' me
By the time I was, half alive
They knew what I was gonna be
But I left school, and grew my hair
They didn't understand
They wanted me to be respected as
A doctor or a lawyer man
(But I had other plans)

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll - a rock 'n' roll star

Well I worked real hard
And bought myself
A rock 'n' roll guitar
I gotta be on top some day
I wanna be a star
I can see my name in lights
And I can see the queue
I got the devil in my blood
Tellin' me what to do
(And I'm all ears)

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll - a rock 'n' roll star
I hear it pays well

And you can stick your nine to five livin' and your
Collar and your tie
And stick your moral standards 'cause it's
All a dirty lie
You can stick your golden handshake and you can
Stick your silly rules and the
And all the other shit
That you teach to kids in school
'Cause I ain't no fool

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll - a rock 'n' roll star

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll - a rock 'n' roll star

Yes I are
