    "Telegram: On Your Way/so You Wanna Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star/sound Check" Lyrics


    Sent a telegram today
    Tomorrow you'll be on your way
    Could be Memphis or L.A.
    No questions just get out and play.

    Wake up call to catch the plane
    You know you're on the road again
    Someone's bangin' in your head
    Why did you get so late to bed.
    Runnin' late and feelin' bad
    That breakfast was the worst you've had
    Make the gate no time to spare

    Before you know you're in the air.

    747 flies us high
    Much higher than we're meant to be
    You're six miles high but feelin' down
    You wish you could be on the ground.

    Find your bags and walk for miles
    The customs man is waitin' there
    Immigration cause delay
    You wonder if you'll ever play.
    Limousine is standin' by
    We get inside and drive a while
    F.M. Station soundin' good
    And gettin' better every mile.

    Hotel lobby looks the same
    With all the same old girls in town

    Press reception takes the day
    With all the same old things to say
    Need your picture smile this way
    And will you tell me what you play

    So you want to be a rock'n'roll star
    Just listen now to what I say
    Get yourself an electric guitar
    and take some time and learn to play.

    Your roadies call to say OK
    The soundcheck can get underway
    Soundcheckover, had some fun
    A waste of time for everyone
    Time has come to start the show
    It's boogie time for everyone
    Check guitars before you go

    They're close enough for rock n roll
    The lights are low,
    The crowd is high,much higher than
    They're meant to be
    We take the stage and start to play
    The lights come up for all to see

    Here we are again, singin' the same old songs
    Lookin for someone who will sing along
    Here we are again playin' the same old scenes
    Lookin'for someone who will share our dreams
    Here we are again facing the same old sights
    Lookin' for someone who will share our nights
