she wants to be a star so badly she can taste it,
they tell her she’ll go far, she doesn’t want to waste it
she’s lost a couple pounds, she’d like to date someone famous,
she wants to be a star, she’s anything but aimless
+++ and she looks just like and she sounds just like the one who hit it big,
+++ just like that multi-platinum cutout who made adolescents wig,
+++ she reminds someone of someone, and she hopes the game’s not rigged,

‘cause everybody wants to be a star…
in the convention line, the two college guys behind me
evaluate her ass, but they’re of two different minds
one says she should lose some weight, one thinks that’s unnecessary,
she wants to be a star, it goes with the territory
+++ ‘cause she looks just like and she sounds just like the one who hit it big,
+++ just like that multi-platinum cutout who made adolescents wig,
+++ someday she’ll sell a zillion records, surely, if the game’s not rigged,

‘cause everybody wants to be a star,
doesn’t everybody want to be a star?..
