  • [Verse 1: MC Lars]
    Walking down the hall all the fifth graders swoon
    Autograph line every day in homeroom
    On the playground all the kids like to point and whisper
    “Check his calloused guitar-button blisters”
    I’m a fourth grade celebrity
    Plastic axe on my back and a Dragonforce T
    My teachers know that I’m the man
    A walking, talking ten-year-old-brand
    Pepsi offered me mad Gs to drink Sobe exclusively
    Guitar Hero, it’s my song, flip the switch and then it’s on

    [Chorus: Parry Gripp]
    Well I’m starting up my Wii and all my fans are in the stands
    I would invite my parents but they’ll never understand
    I’ve got a reputation for the levels that I beat
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero, hey that’s me

    [Verse 2: MC Lars]
    They say Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil
    I can beat “Through the Fire and Flames” on expert level
    While Slash rocks the Strip up and down LA
    I push multi-colored buttons on a stick all day
    Dimebag brought the dope harmonics
    My five buttons are electronic
    Clapton spilt his heart on “Layla”
    I go (click click click) playa
    Hendrix lit his Strat on fire
    Generations were inspired
    One day my songs could do the same
    If I weren’t so addicted to this game!

    [Chorus: Parry Gripp]
    I’m a player, I’m a hero, I’m your rock star little man
    If I don’t do my homework will my teachers understand?
    Can’t really strum a note and every gig I rock for free
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero, hey that’s me

    [Verse 3: MC Lars]
    Beating Call of Duty doesn’t mean your aim is good
    Beating Wii Golf doesn’t make you Tiger Woods
    Beating Apples to Apples doesn’t make you a farmer
    Watching UFC won’t make you any harder
    Friends on Myspace won’t make you a musician
    Beating Operation doesn’t make you a physician
    Watching CSI doesn’t make you a detective
    Playing Mario Paint doesn’t mean you have perspective
    Beating Gears of War doesn’t make you Wintson Churchill
    Quoting 90′s sitcoms doesn’t make you Steve Urkel
    Grand Theft Auto doesn’t make you a player
    Playing Sim City doesn’t make you a mayor
    Beating Rock Band doesn’t mean you rock
    Beating Tony Hawk doesn’t make you Tony Hawk
    American Idol won’t make you a star
    Beating Guitar Hero doesn’t mean you play guitar
    Play me some guitar
    Now play me some guitar
    Play me some guitar
    Paul Gilbert on guitar!
    Let’s go!

    [Chorus: Parry Gripp]
    Well I know my mom will ground me if I play again all night
    When I step into the zone I always rock it right
    My eyes are getting bloodshot as my fingers start to bleed
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero

    [Verse 4: MC Lars]
    I’m gamer, I’m an addict, guitar strummer, I’m a fan
    One day I’ll tour the country in my drummer’s beat-up van
    But until I learn to play I’ll sit in front of my TV
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero
    I’m a Guitar Hero hero
    Hey that’s me!
    And that’s me!
    And that’s you!
    Well golly gee!
    Yeah!
