Sunday Song Lyric:

Nothing profound this week, nor anything particularly classic — just something current and fun. Nickelback‘s “Rockstar” seems to capture our culture’s fascination and obsession with celebrity lifestyles, the glamour, the debauchery, and the emptiness. Here’s a taste.

I’m through with standing in line
to clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
and I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
quite the way I want it to be . . . .

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair
And change my name

‘Cause we all just
wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses
driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and
the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny
’cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
with her bleach blond hair
And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and
today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything
with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a
drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

The full lyrics are available on Nickelback’s website here. The video, featuring quite a few lip-synching cameos, is here.
