I have a Facebook friend named Suzie whom I can only describe as The Groupie Godess.  She has long silky blonde hair, beautiful brown eyes, and a big, gorgeous smile that makes me smile every single time I see it. And she always dresses to kill ~ sexy with rock star class and a touch of creativity. So, anyway, one day I was on Facebook and scrolling past news feed photos of Suzie hanging out with rock stars, and the thought came to me, “You make me wanna be a rock star.” Boom! Song idea! And a year later, here it is, my entry into the Win-Suzie’s-Heart Songwriting Contest… 😉 There are a few inside jokes in this song that only Suzie and her friends will get, but otherwise, it’s a universal theme and probably the main driving factor in why a lot of guys become musicians ~ girls! It’s been happening for a million years.  Enjoy!

You Make Me Want To Be a Rock Star

I see your pictures on your Facebook page
Hangin’ around with the big stars backstage

Dressed so fine and looking half your age
I wonder where in the world you’ll be today

You make me wanna be a rock star
I wanna tour with a hot band
I wanna live like a Rolling Stone
Little Suzie won’t you take my hand

Your long blonde hair must smell like sunshine
The hottie hip chick look just blows my mind
Your smiling eyes have got me hypnotized
You crush this dusty rock hard heart of mine
I wonder where in the world you’re gonna be today

You make me wanna be a rock star
I wanna sing in a hot band
I want to live like a Rolling Stone
Little Suzie won’t you take my hand
I wanna write you a hit song
Ride it all the way to #1
Wanna hear it on the radio
Talk about it on The Late Show
You make me wanna be a rock star

I never want you to go away, no, no, baby
I wanna see your face in the mirror every single day

You make me wanna be a rock star
I wanna sing in a hot band
I want to live like a Rolling Stone
Little Suzie let me take you home
I’ll pick you up on my jet plane
Rock and roll with you backstage
See you singing in the front row
Wanna get you on my Facebook page
You make me wanna be a rock star, oh yeah
You make me wanna be a rock star, oh yeah, baby
You make me wanna be a rock star, ooh yeah
I’m gonna practice every single day
