Well, I guess I been a long time Working in the back line Trying to make a song fit You know it never was mine Two dollar high-heel and a honky tonk dress In the rhythm and soul revues I had a dream, I guess Yes, yes
And I had to beat the stage fright I had to cry all night Tryin' to make a song fit You know it never was right I said, 'Girl, get up and get out of this mess You're gonna be and overnight sensation Be an overnight success'
And all through the badlands Rockin' on the bandstands It's so hard in the bar bands When there's no one there who understands And Lady Luck'll pass you by And she'll never say, 'Yes You're gonna be an overnight sensation Gonna be an overnight success'
Well, I used to be a sweet little rock 'n' roll singer Chasing after fortune and fame What's your story? What's your payola? Me, I'm in the music game
Well, I guess I've been a long time Workin' in the backline Tryin' to make a song fit You know it never was mine What can I tell you I made a break I guess Now I'm an overnight sensation I'm an over overnight I'm an over overnight success
