Well I guess I've been a long time
Trying to make a song fit
Two dollar high-heel shoes and a honky tonk dress

I had to cry all night
When you know it never was right
Girl, get up and get out of this mess
Gonna be an overnight success
And all through the badlands
It's so hard in the barbands
And Lady Luck will pas you by and she will never say yes
Gonna be an overnight success
I used to be a sweet little rock'n'roll singer
What's your story? What's your payola?

Working in a backline
When you know it never was mine
And now I'm an overnight sensation
