Verse:
    G	        D           Am             C  	   	   
Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me 
    G	               D           Am   C  	 
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed 
         G	        D             Am               	   
She was looking kinda dumb with her finger and her 
C             G           D           Am       C  	   
Thumb in the shape of an "L" on her forehead 

Verse:
  G                                 D 
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming 
Am                       C 
Back to the rules and I hit the ground running 
  G                        D 
Didn't make sense not to live for fun 
    Am                      C 
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb 
 
Pre-Chorus:
  G             D 
So much to do so much to see 
   Am                            C 
So what's wrong with taking the back streets 
   G                       D 
You'll never know if you don't go 
   Am                      C 
You'll never shine if you don't glow 
 
Chorus:
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play 
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid 
G             D           Am 
And all that glitters is gold 
C	 	G     F	         C 
Only shooting stars break the mold 
 
Verse:
   G                        D 
It's a cool place and they say it gets colder 
   Am                 C 
You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older 
    G                    D 
But the media men beg to differ 
                 Am                  C 
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture 
 
Verse:
             G                     D 
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin 
                    Am                        C 
The waters getting warm so you might as well swim 
               G               D 
My world's on fire how about yours 
           Am                             C 
That's the way I like it and I never get bored 

Chorus - 2 -:
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play 
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid 
G             D           Am 
And all that glitters is gold 
C	 	G     F	         C 
Only shooting stars break the mold

Verse:
G	        D                Am                C  
Somebody once asked, could you spare some change for gas 
G	               D              Am    C  	
I need to get myself away from this place
G	           D                Am                C  
I said yep what a concept I could use a little fuel myself 
        G           D           Am       C  
And we could all use a little change 

Verse:
  G                                 D 
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming 
Am                       C 
Back to the rules and I hit the ground running 
  G                        D 
Didn't make sense not to live for fun 
    Am                      C 
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb 
 
Pre-Chorus:
   G             D 
So much to do so much to see 
   Am                            C 
So what's wrong with taking the back streets 
   G                       D 
You'll never know if you don't go 
   Am                      C 
You'll never shine if you don't glow 
 
Chorus:
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play 
G                  D           Am             C  
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid 
G             D           Am 
And all that glitters is gold 
C	 	G     F	         C 
Only shooting stars break the mold

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
