Lyrics:
Everybody's looking at me.  Thought I saw my face on MTV,
or a magazine that she won't read, stole her heart it's not my fault,
lookin' at my picture she forgot about her boyfriend, yeah.

I'll never be, a rock'n roll star.
I'll never be, anything, anything at all, drives me crazy.
Can't get away, somebody tell me, when do we get paid?

Everybody's looking at me.  Thought by now I'd be on MTV,
or a magazine like seventeen or rolling stone, and I won't be alone with
your money in my pocket and my face on your T-Shirt, yeah.

I'll never be, a rock'n roll star.
I'll never be, anything, anything at all, drives me crazy.
Can't get away, I try and I try and I try and I try,
every day, every day but I'll never be, a rock'n roll star.

That's it! Let me know what you think, especially if you have any
requests. I do 'em!

Luke

Great Tab but I think the harmonics part is like this:

|---------------|
|-----7---------|
|--------7------|
|---7-----------|
|---------------|
