words to this song:
intro/verse:I'm through a standin in line to clubs I'll never get in, its like the
of the ninthe and I'm never guna win, this life hasn't turned out quite the way i want
to
I want a brand new house on an episode of Cribs, and a bathroom i can play baseball in,
a king sized tub big enough for ten plus me. I'll need a credit card thats got no
and big black jet with a bathroom in it, i'm guna join the mile high club at
thousand feet. I want a new tool bus full of old guitars, my star on hollywood 
someware
Chere and James Dean is fine for me. I'm guna trade this lif for fortune and fame i'll 
cut my hair and change my name.

chorus:
because we all just want to be a big rock star, and livin hill top castles drivin
cars, the girls come easy and the drugs come cheap, I'll stay skiny cuz we just wont
and
hang out at the coolest bars, V.I.P with the movie stars, every good gold diggers guna
up there, every playboy bunnie with her bleach blond hair, hey hey wana be a rock star.

verse 2:
I wana be great like Elvis without the tassels, everybody gota love all the beat up
I'll sign a couple autographs so I can eat my meals for free. I'm guna dress my ass with the
fashions, get a front door key to the playboy mansion, guna date a center fold that love
blow my money for me. I'm guna trade this life for fortune and fame I'll even cut my
and change my name.

chorus:
because we all just wana be a big rock star, livin hill top castles livin fifteen cars,
girls come easy and the drugs come cheap, I'll stay skiny cuz we just wont eat, and
hang out in the coolest bars, V.I.P with the movie stars, every good gold diggers guna
up there, every playboy bunnie with her bleach blond hair,and we'll hide out in the
rooms, with the ladies dictionary of todays who's who,they'll get you anything with that
smile, everybodys got a drug dealer on speed dial, hey hey i want to be a rock star.

bridge:
i'm guna sing those songs that will bend the sense, I'm guna pop my pills from a pez
get washed up singers writin all my songs, lip sinc em every night so i dont get it wrong.

2nd chorus again.

About the artist behind Rock Star Tab:

Nickelback is a Grammy Award-nominated Canadian alternative rock[4][5]/post-grunge[6] band formed in Hanna, Alberta by Chad Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Ryan Peake and then-drummer Brandon Kroeger (the current drummer of Nickelback being Daniel Adair). The band is one of the most popular of the modern post-grunge genre, along with groups such as 3 Doors Down and Daughtry, performing in a significantly more radio-friendly style than the traditional, early 1990s grunge music era. Although the founders of the band hail from Hanna, Alberta, a small town east of Calgary, they are now based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The band's name originates from the nickel in change that band member Mike Kroeger gave customers at his Starbucks job- he would frequently say, "Here's your nickel back".[7]

The band is signed to EMI at home and Roadrunner Records for the rest of the world.
