that’s it
 
they offer money, they offer fame
wanna give you a brand new name
come on buddy, make your sign
right here on the dotted line
right on the dotted line
come on boy, you’ll be a star
but we don’t want you the way you are
there’ll be some changes that you’ll see
if you want to play for me
if you want to play for me
sometimes it’s a heavy load
will it end
but that living on the road
is all there’s ever been
now since this story is based on fact
i can’t tell you if they’ll come back
they’re my friends, oh i wish them well
but, buddy, only time will tell
buddy, only time will tell
they offer money, they offer fame
wanna give you a brand new name
come on buddy, make your sign
right here on the dotted line
right on the dotted line
that’s it
