Oh is he more, too much more than a pretty face
It's so strange the way he talk, it's a disgrace
Well I know I've been out of style
For a short while
But I don't care how cold you are
I'm coming home soon
I'm gonna make you a star, yeah

Well he say he's into his music
But I don't believe it
He just doesn't seem to understand the rock media
Well I know I'm not super hip
And I'm liable to take a slip
But I don't care how cold you are
I'm coming home soon
I'm gonna make you a star, yeah, yeah

We gonna make ya a star
We gonna make ya a star

Oh is he more, too much more than a pretty face
(I don't think so)
It's so strange the way he talkin', it's a disgrace
Well I know I've out of style
For a short while
But you see I don't care how cold you are
I'm coming home soon
I'm gonna make you a star, yeah

We gonna make ya a star
We gonna make ya a star
We gonna make ya a star
We gonna make ya a star
We gonna make ya a star

Every cloud has a silver lining
