All Star - Smash Mouth

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was lookin kinda 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
Head 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 takin 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 shootin stars (break the mold)

It's a cool place, and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now, wait till you get older
But the media men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
The ice we skate is gettin pretty thin
The water's gettin warm so you might as well swim
My world's on fire, how about yours?
Cuz that's the way i like it and i never get bored

[Repeat **]

[Repeat **]

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

[Repeat * , **]

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