lyrics

I wanna be a rock star
I wanna shake up the world
I’m so damn tired of these hometown girls
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you

Well, it was 2010 and I was one year into high school partyin’ with my friends
I met this girl and my band really drove her crazy
And I haven’t forgot, she was so damn hot
But she talked about the future, getting married, and whatnot
So one day I said, “Listen, baby”

I said I wanna be a rock star
I wanna shake up the world
I’m so damn tired of these hometown girls
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you

Well, she slapped me and yelled, “Honey, go to hell”
“You’re never gonna make it, you’re too full of yourself”
And ever since then, those words have really driven me crazy
It’s just I can’t imagine going all my life without seeing what the foreign girls look like at night
Sometimes she asks me to chill, and I said “Maybe”

I said I wanna be a rock star
I wanna shake up the world
I’m so damn tired of these hometown girls
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you
I say I wanna be a pop star
I wanna travel the world
Have a one night stand with a cute French girl
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you
Because I wanna be

It was 2010 and I was one year into high school partyin’ with my friends
I met this girl and my band really drove her crazy
And I’m singin’ “Whoa, whoa, whoa”

I said I wanna be a rock star
I wanna shake up the world
I’m so damn tired of these hometown girls
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you
I say I wanna be a pop star
I wanna travel the world
Have a one night stand with a cute French girl
In my fast car, put on the diamonds and pearls I bought you

Because I wanna be a rock star
I wanna be a rock star
I wanna be a rock star
Take those diamonds and pearls
Because I wanna be
