Well I guess I've been a long time
Working in a backline
Trying to make a song fit
When you know it never was mine
Two dollar high-heel shoes and a honky tonk dress
In the rhythm and the soul reviews I had a dream I guess

And I had to beat the stage fright
I had to cry all night
Trying to make a song fit
When you know it never was right
I said
Girl, get up and get out of this mess
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success

And all through the badlands
Rocking on the bandstands
It's so hard in the barbands
When there's no one there who understands
And Lady Luck will pas you by and she will never say yes
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success

I used to be a sweet little rock'n'roll singer
Chasing after fortune and fame
What's your story? What's your payola?
Me I'm in the music game

Well I guess I've been a long time
Working in a backline
Trying to make a song fit
When you know it never was mine
What can I tell you, I made a break I guess
And now I'm an overnight sensation
I'm an over overnight success
