So your girlfriend slammed the door shut in your face tonight, but that's alright.
Then she took off to the opera with some highbrow from the city light.
Well, you grew up on a corner; you never missed a moonlit night.
Some things never change; they stay the way they are, ho ho ho ho ho ho.

Well, you were born to rock; you'll never be an opera star.
You were born to rock; you'll never be an opera star.
Ho ho ho ho ho ho (ho ho ho); ho ho ho ho ho ho (ho ho ho)

So you stayed out all night, getting f___ed up in that rock-'n'-roll bar.
And you never get tired, 'cause your drugs are in a little jar.
You were born to rock, and you'll never be an opera star.
Some things never change; they stay the way they are, ho ho ho ho ho ho.
