Well I guess I've been a long time 
Working in a backline 
Trying to make a song fit 
When you know it never was mine 
Two dollar high-heel shoes and a honky tonk dress 
In the rhythm and the soul reviews I had a dream I guess 

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

And all through the badlands 
Rocking on the bandstands 
It's so hard in the barbands 
When there's no one there who understands 
And Lady Luck will pas you by and she will never say yes 
You're gonna be an overnight sensation 
Gonna be an overnight success 

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 
Working in a backline 
Trying to make a song fit 
When you know it never was mine 
What can I tell you, I made a break I guess 
And now I'm an overnight sensation 
I'm an over overnight success
