View Just Lyrics...

You're a rock-n-roll star
You are out of the charts
Your blood is cold you're getting old
But your life is rock-n-roll

That crazy rock-n-roll band
Is spinning in your head (in your head)
Each and every way ya make the thoughts
Is about stars on the chart

Ohhh... and they are top of the bill

You're a rock-n-roll star
You've been the first one on the chart
You've had glory and fame
Rock-n-roll was your game

Ohhh... and you were top of the bill
