Lyrics Edit

Some-

-body once told me the world is gonna roll me

I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb

In the shape of an "L" on her forehead


Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming

Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running

Didn't make sense not to live for fun

Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see

So what's wrong with taking the backstreets?

You'll never know if you don't go

You'll never shine if you don't glow


Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play

Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on, get paid

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars break the mold


It's a cool place and they say it gets colder

You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older

But the meteor men beg to differ

Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

The ice we skate is getting pretty thin

The water's getting warm so you might as well swim

My world's on fire, how about yours?

That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored


It's a cool place and they say it gets colder

(Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me)

You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older

But the meteor men beg to differ

(I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed)

Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

The ice we skate is getting pretty thin

(She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb)

The water's getting warm so you might as well swim

My world's on fire, how about yours?

(In the shape of an "L" on her forehead)

That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored


Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play

(And we'll all float on okay)

Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on, get paid

(And we'll all float on okay)

And all that glitters is gold

(And we'll all float on okay)

Only shooting stars break the mold

(And we'll all float on )


Alright already, we'll all float on

(Go for the moon)

Now don't you worry we'll all float on

(Go for the moon)

Alright, already, we'll all float on

(Go for the moon)

Alright, don't worry, we'll all float on

(Go for the moon)


Somebody once asked "Could I spare some change for gas?

I need to get myself away from this place"

I said "Yep, what a concept

I could use a little fuel myself

And we could all use a little change!"


Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming

(Alright already, we'll all float on)

Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running

Didn't make sense not to live for fun

(Alright already, we'll all float on)

Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see

(Alright, don't worry, even if things end up)

So what's wrong with taking the backstreets?

You'll never know if you don't go

(A bit too heavy, we'll all float on)

You'll never shine if you don't glow


Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play

(Alright, already, we'll all float on)

Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on, get paid

(Alright, already, we'll all float on okay)

And all that glitters is gold

(Don't worry, we'll all float on)

Only shooting stars break the mold

(Even if things get heavy, we'll all float on alright)

And all that glitters is gold

(Alright)

Only shooting stars break the mold

(Alright)
