All Star by Smash Mouth

Lyrics

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an “L” on her forehead

Well, the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the backstreets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow

Hey now you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey now you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

It’s a cool place, and they say it gets colder
You’re bundled up now but wait ’til you get older
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water’s getting warm so you might as well swim
My world’s on fire, how about yours?
That’s the way I like it and I’ll never get bored

Hey now you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey now you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

(Go for the moon)
(Go for the moon)
(Go for the moon)
(Go for the moon)

Hey now you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey now you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars

Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
“I need to get myself away from this place”
I said “Yep, what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change!”

Well, the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the backstreets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow

Hey now you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey now you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
