OK here we go!


[Verse 1]

                 A
I'm through with standing in line to clubs we'll never get in,
          D
It's like bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win,
     G                      C                           A
This life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be.


[Verse 2]

         A
I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs,
      D
And a bathroom I can play baseball in,
      G                 C                    A
And a king size tub big enough for ten plus me.


[Verse 3]

           A
I'll need a credit card that's got no limit,
      D
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it,
      G                          C                      A
Gonna join the mile-high club at thirty-seven thousand feet.


[Verse 4]

         A
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars,
       D
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard,
    G                      C                      A
Somewhere between Cher and James Dean is fine for me.


[Pre-Chorus]

          C
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame,
         D
I'd even cut my hair and change my name.


[Chorus 1]

          A
'Cause we all just want to be big Rockstars,
            C
And live in Hilltop Houses driven fifteen cars,
    G
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap,
      F                        G
We'll all stay skinny cause we just won't eat,
        A
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars,
       C
In the VIP with the movie stars,
      G
Every good gold diggers gonna wind up there.
      F                      G
Every playboy bunny with her bleach blonde hair,
C      D                 A
Hey hey i wanna be a Rockstar!
C      D                 A
Hey hey i wanna be a Rockstar!


[Verse 5]

           A
I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels,
     D
Hire eight body guards who love to beat up assholes,
       G                          C                 A
Sign a couple autographs so I can eat my meals for free.


[Verse 6]

          A
I'm gonna dress my ass with the latest fashion,
      D
Get a front door key to the Playboy Mansion,
      G                               C                  A
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to blow my money for me.


[Pre-Chorus]

          C
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame,
         D
I'd even cut my hair and change my name.


[Chorus 2]

          A
'Cause we all just want to be big Rockstars,
            C
And live in Hilltop Houses driven fifteen cars
    G
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap,
      F                        G
We'll all stay skinny cause we just won't eat,
        A
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars,
       C
In the VIP with the movie stars,
      G
Every good gold diggers gonna wind up there,
      F                      G
Every playboy bunny with her bleach blonde hair,
        A
And we'll hide out in the private rooms,
         C
With the latest dictionary and todays who's who,
        G
They'll get you anything with that evil smile,
     F                       G
Everybodys got a drug dealer on speed dial,
    C       D                 A
Well Hey hey i wanna be a Rockstar!


[Bridge]

          C
I'm gonna sing those songs that offend the censors,
      G
Gonna pop my pills from a pez despenser,
    C
Get washed up singers writing all my songs,
    G
Lip sync 'em everynight so i won't get them wrong!


[Chorus 2]

 C        D                 A
...Hey Hey I wanna be a Rockstar!
C      D                 A (let ring)
Hey hey I wanna Be a Rockstar!

Good work bud, but...... the chords are not arranged properly, jusr from listening to the song i can tell you that it starts on the G not the A.... so it's like this
G
I'm through with standing in line to clubs we'll never get in
C
It's like bottom of the ninth and I'm never gonna win

F C G
This life hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be

Good luck, That's my 2 cents....

you will have to listen i guess for the changes seeing as the post here doesn't allow me to spread the chords out the way they should be... at least they are the right chords.
