The Statler Brothers How To Be A Country Star Lyrics

There's questions we're always hearing every where
we go
Like how do I cut a record or get on a country show

Well, it takes more than just ambition and three
chords on an old guitar
There's a few more things you ought to learn to be a
country star

You got to learn to sing like Waylon or pick like Jerry
Yodel like Jeannie Shepard, write songs like Tom T
Put a cry in your voice like Haggard, learn Spanish
like Johnny R
Whisper like Bill Andersen and you'll be a country

Play piano like Ronnie Mil sap or Gilly or Jerry Lee
Yo-yo like Roy Acuff or talk plain like Ralph Emery
Growl like Con way Twitty, get a red, white and blue
Build a swimming pool like Webb did and you'll be a
country star

Be tall like Sonny James is, tell jokes like Minnie
Or be short like Jimmy Dickens or play five-string
like Earl
Get a hip band like Willie, learn to stutter like M-Mel
Get a cap like Roy Clark wore or a voice like Barbara
Be rich like Eddy Arnold, say you're imakin more
than you are
Get a gimmick like Charley Pricle got and you'll be a
country star

But if you have no talent and you're not a male If you're built somewhat like Dolly or have a face like
Crystal Gayle

Come back stage and ask for Harold, Phil, Don or Lou
And we'll see you get auditioned for the Statler
