Gonna Be A Star
Music and Lyrics by Drew Evan Stewart

I've got trouble keepin' up with takin' all these damn pills some before and some after I eat.
I can't see the kitchen counter 'cause it's covered with bills. It seems to be that way perpetually.
I can't get up in the morning and I can't sleep at night. I've got a boss that's lost his mind, he ain't treatin' me right
My ass is overloaded, and there's no happy end in sight

Don't ya know my girl done told me that she's "...had it with me!" and I really can't blame her at all.
It seems like every time I get near the finish line, I stumble, or get tripped, and I fall!
I've had all that I can stand from the powers that be! I even think my mistress is cheatin' on me!
So I've made a new plan and if it don't work? To hell with it all!

I'm gonna be famous... I'm gonna be a star...
Might not be as gifted as some may be but I'm better than a lot of them are
I can put on quite a show! Baby that's a fact!
*Everybody thinks I love my job! You still think I can't act???
I'm packin' a bag, and my guitar! From here on out its SHOWTIME! Gonna Be a Star......

I can't dance real well but I can damn sure sing, and I ain't afraid to get on stage!
I can play just about anything that's got strings! Nice & soft or in a helluva rage!
I wanna sleep late in the mornin' wanna stay up all night!
Let my lawyers do the talkin', Let my agents do the fightin'
And I'll be readin' screenplays, or on MySpace, until they hit that hot spot light!

CHORUS * everybody thinks I'm RICH!

I hear it's fashionable out in Hollywood, to have a little brush with the law.
Baby I should fit right in, & be able to accommodate that pretty easily...
'Cause I've got a County Sheriff, that keeps knockin' on my front door!
They're just dyin' to meet me.....

CHORUS * Everybody thinks I'm happy!.....
