Overnight Sensation - Tina Turner

Well, I guess I been a long time
Working in the back line
Trying to make a song fit
You know it never was mine
Two dollar high-heel and a honky tonk dress
In the rhythm and soul revues
I had a dream, I guess
Yes, yes

And I had to beat the stage fright
I had to cry all night
Tryin' to make a song fit
You know it never was right
I said, 'Girl, get up and get out of this mess
You're gonna be and overnight sensation
Be an overnight success'

And all through the badlands
Rockin' on the bandstands
It's so hard in the bar bands
When there's no one there who understands
And Lady Luck'll pass you by
And she'll never say, 'Yes
You're gonna be an overnight sensation
Gonna be an overnight success'

Well, I used to be a sweet little rock 'n' roll singer
Chasing after fortune and fame
What's your story? What's your payola?
Me, I'm in the music game

Well, I guess I've been a long time
Workin' in the backline
Tryin' to make a song fit
You know it never was mine
What can I tell you
I made a break I guess
Now I'm an overnight sensation
I'm an over overnight
I'm an over overnight success
