lyrics

I work in a grocery store
May have told you once before
As well as I'm a singer in a band
Don't you know?

Everyone I know, they say
Rather shocked and in dismay
How long are you gonna live like this?

Can't you see the reality?
No girlfriend, no security
You're almost on your own in this babylon
You may last a year or two
And then what are you gonna do?
Aren't you afraid of being all alone?

Yes, I'm afraid like everybody else
Yes I do fear another day I face
With my bet I place
Every single day of life,
Hoping one day my dreams will come true
I can be nobody else but just myself
And I will take the blame
And I won't be ashamed even if I hit the floor
Yes, I'm a rockstar in a grocery store

So my friend came back from a holiday
Lying on a beach, Caribbean bay
It's nice to get out of New York sometimes
Don't you think?
They give warnings for my fate
Find another job before it's too late
When was the last time you took vacation?

Everyday I go around
I eat breakfast in Chinatown
I see the world without taking an airplane
Here's Jamaican festival
I join the multi cultural parade
right through the sidewalk in the rain

I won't be afraid like everybody else
I no longer fear another day I face
In any case, every single day of life
is such a treasure in a secret drawer
Why be like somebody else?
When you're the only one that lives like you
and feels like you
I don't worry any more
Just call me a rockstar in a grocery store

Just let everybody know
Yes, I'm a rockstar in a grocery store
Working right next door
Counting singles in my hand
But at night I'm a singer in a band
La la la ...
I let the stars above decide my fate
and I just can't wait
for tomorrow, that's for sure
Yes, I'm a rockstar in a grocery,
Rockstar in a grocery,
Rockstar in a grocery store!
