JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

play background vocals

from free*

I got a guitar
I play it real loud
I play the same 4 stupid chords
I ain't proud
I got this band
they hate my guts
one's an ignoramus one's a putz
they sing background vocals

go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la

I got this gig
I like to show up late
I like to show the sound person
all my hate
it's the way I am
it's just what I do
and if you don't like it
you can screw

the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
but listen to me
you gotta feel my pain
you gotta listen to all the garbage in my brain
and the bridge goes:

I got a guitar
I play it as loud
as it will go through the headphones
if I'm aloud
I know this girl
I think she knows my name
I'm asking... I'm thinking of asking her to sing

the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
the background vocals go la la la
I don't want to be just another face on me-toobe
I think that I could be a real thing baby
I don't want ot be just another face on me-toobe
I think that I could be a star.
