Cat Stevens (I Never Wanted) to Be a Star Lyrics

I was seventeen,
You were working for Matthew and Son,
The Beatles met the Queen, and I wrote
I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah, yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine,
Oh, no, izitso, izitso?

I never wanted to be a star,
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart

I never wanted to be la-de-da,
Go to parties "Avec le bourgeois"
I only wanted to sing my song well,
So I could ring a small bell in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was on the road,
Sleeping between lorry lights, oh no
Stone-drunk and cold,
Heading into a bad night, yeah, yeah
Just another bean in the star machine, hi ho,
Here I go, here I go

I never wanted to be a star
Buy my mum a Ferrari car
I only wanted to run my own race,
So I could win a small place in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nature found a way,
It picked me up off the dark side, yeah, yeah
Showed me another day, it made me sing
"I think I see the light"
Not another bean in the star machine, oh no,
This time I won't go

I never wanted to be a star,
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart Lyrics © BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT US, LLC
