  1. My Daddy was workin’ nine to five
    When my Momma was havin’ me
    By the time I was half alive
    They knew what I was gonna be
    But I left school and grew my hair
    They didn’t understand
    They wanted me to be respected as
    A doctor or a lawyer man
    (But I had other plans)
    Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
    Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star
    Gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll singer
    I’m gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll
    A rock ‘n’ roll star
