Overnight Sensation

Well I guess Iíve 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 stagefright
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
Youíre gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success

And all through the badlands
Rocking on the bandstands
Itís so hard in the barbands
When thereís no one there who understands
And lady luck will pas you by and she will never say yes
Youíre gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success

I used to be a sweet little rockíníroll singer
Chasing after fortune and fame
Whatís your story? whatís your payola? 
Me Iím in the music game

Well I guess Iíve 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 Iím an overnight sensation
Iím an over overnight success
