BABY I'M A STAR

Original Prince And The Revolution version


Whoa!
Eh! Eh!
One, two, three, four!

[Backmasking:] (So like, fuck them man. What do they know? All their taste is in their mouth. Really. What the fuck do they know? Come on baby, let's go crazy.)

Aw-whoa!
Aw!

Hey, look me over, tell me do you like what you see
Hey, I ain't got no money, but honey I'm rich on personality
Hey, check it all out, baby I know what it's all about
Before the night is through, you will see my point of view
Even if I have to scream and shout

Baby I'm a (star)
Whoa-woo, might not know it now, baby but I are, I'm a (star)
Whoa-woo, I don't want to stop 'til I reach the top, sing it (we are all stars)

Hey, take a listen, tell me do you like what you hear
If it don't turn you on, just say the word and I'm gone
But honey I know ain't nothing wrong with your ears, aw!
Hey, check it all out, better look now or it just might be too late (just might be too late)
My luck's gonna change tonight, there's gotta be a better life
Take a picture sweetie, I ain't got time to waste

'Cause baby I'm a (star), aw!
Whoa-woo, might not know it now, baby but I are, I'm a (star), aw!
Whoa-woo, I don't want to stop 'til I reach the top, sing it (we are all stars)

Everybody say, nothing come too easy
But when you got it baby, nothing come too hard
You'll see what I'm all about (see what I'm all about)
If I gotta scream and shout (if I gotta scream and shout)
Baby, baby (baby), baby (baby), baby (baby)
Yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! (Oh!)

Might not know it now, baby but I are, I'm a (star), aw!
Whoa-woo, I don't want to stop 'til I reach the top, sing its (star)
Whoa-woo, baby, baby, baby, oh baby I'm a (star)
Whoa-woo, baby, baby, baby, somebody (we are all stars)

Aw!
Whao!
(Baby I'm a star), (we are all a star), aw
(We are all a star)
(We are all a star)
Doctor!
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
(We are all stars)

[Backmasking:] (So like, fuck them man. What do they know? All their taste is in their mouth. Really. What the fuck do they know? Come on baby, let's go crazy.)
