Wanted To Be A Singer

Wanted To Be A Singer

Wanted to be a singer in a rock’n’roll band
Back home where my zodiac lay
Wanted everyone to follow in my footsteps
See like me and be a part of my creation
Wanted the whole universe to follow
Especially my guitar
And room to practice in
Wanted everything so shiny with repects to you

Ooh I’ve wondered
Ooh I’ve wondered
Ooh I’ve wondered
Just what’s going on

And she breaks like a little child
