|Bb                                   |Eb/Bb       |
 Stardom In Acton that's all they got
|Bb                                   |Eb/Bb       |
 Stardom In Acton that's all they got
|Bb                              |Eb            |
 Stardom In Acton that's all they got

|Bb                      F                         |Ab
 Just like the grub that wriggles to the top of the mass 
                     Eb     |
I'm the first to get hooked
Just like the stub of that long cigarette full of hash 
I'm the first to get booked
|F       Eb         |F         Eb       |
 But I'm capable, my love's inescapable
Conquering lethargy, I've got energy

|Bb      |Eb                   |Bb                        |Eb         |
 Stardom, I want a hit, want my tan, want my cash, want my innocence
|Bb      |Eb                      |Eb                         |Eb      |
 Stardom, I want a script, want my band, want my stash, want omnipotence

I'll go where the senescent soldier retires 
and shiver in south California
Watching the storms and the tangling wires 
and rivers that meet on the corner
Like some prostitute handing 'round the loot
I am not ashamed, I will stake a claim Stardom, born in a trunk, got my home, got my car, got stability
Stardom, I'm Hollywood's son, all alone don't admire anonymity

[bridge]
      |Bb5                       
I'm so angry that you turned me on, I didn't remain your friend too long
I'm so angry that you turned me on, 
I didn't stay your friend for too long
      |F             |Bb     Bbsus4 Bb |F             |Bb    Bbsus4 
I'm so angry that you let me see     my totally futile destiny
Bb    |F             |Bb        Bbsus4 
I'm so angry you interrupted my dream 
Bb   |Eb                 |Eb
Now I know that the power rests in me

Stardom, I want a hit, want my tan, want my cash, want my innocence
Stardom, I want a script, want my band, want my stash, want omnipotence
Stardom, born in a trunk, got my home, got my car, got stability
Stardom, but I'm Hollywood's son, all alone don't admire anonymity

||:Bb               |Eb                  |Bb         |Eb        :||
   Stardom in Acton, that's all they got
