Road Rookie
Mp3 Superstar

Well, there ain't no real truck drivers anymore
They all left the road sometime before
And now we're stuck with all these fools
Fresh out of 3 week driving school
And they don't know their 5th wheel from their horn

My Uncle Pete was a real truck driving man
When he got in that rig he had a plan
And he knew every inch of her
Just how to make that diesel purr
And things this new breed just don't understand

Cause, there ain't no real truck drivers anymore
They all left the road sometime before
And now we're stuck with all these fools
Fresh out of 3 week driving school
And they don't know their 5th wheel from their horn

CHORUS
You've got to learn to respect that big machine
Check them tires and keep that engine clean
Grease that big 5th wheel up there
Make sure them brakes ain't leaking air
Frankly, I just think you're kind of green

The way you drive them trucks is just insane
You're even causing lots of death and pain
I can't believe the things you do
And if it's all the same to you
I think I'll just go take myself a train

Cause, there ain't no real truck drivers anymore
They all left the road sometime before
And now we're stuck with all these fools
Fresh out of 3 week driving school
And they don't know their 5th wheel from their horn

CHORUS

(I swear you dang near make me want to scream)
(yeah, you're the one to whom this song I sign)
(And I think you exactly who I mean)
(I just can't believe the things I have seen)
(No yellow light ever did equate to green)
(I wish you'd learn how to drive that big machine)

Hay uh, you want me to get my uncle Pete to show you how thatís done?
Rookie!

Dedicated to my Uncle Pete

Well I'm there on that mp3 dot com web site,
And I upload a brand new song almost every night,
But sometimes I feel like a dog in a great big ol' cat fight,
And I guess there must be something I ain't doin' right.

But it's all right so far,
Long as things don't get too bizarre,
I just want to play my guitar,
And be an m-p-3 superstar.

Now I spend almost two whole hours recordin' every day,
I guess everybody'd like to make'em fast that way,
And I know it's sure it's gonna pay off mighty big some day,
When I become a cyber star and blow'em all away!

But it's all right so far,
I kind-a like things the way that they are,
I just want to play my guitar,
And be an m-p-3 superstar.

And it's all right so far,
even though I ain't got no tips in my jar,
I just want to play my guitar,
And be an m-p-3 superstar.

Well I don't know just what it is I could be doin' wrong,
There ain't nobody out there wants to listen to my songs,
I suppose they all could be little bit too long,
But somethin' tells me everybody wants to give me the gong!

But it's all right so far,
And things don't seem too bizarre,
I just want to play my guitar,
And be an m-p-3 superstar.

Yeah it's all right so far,
I kind-a like things the way that they are,
I just want to play my guitar,
And be an m-p-3 superstar.
