I never was a straight-lace, straight A student Teacher's pet or child prodigy I wasn't gonna get rich throwin' a football It take too long to get a law degree
So I sat down with momma and daddy They tried to talk some sense into my thick head But the best advice that I ever got Was from my sister's rock star boyfriend
Just get you a guitar and learn how to play Cut up some jeans, come up with a name When you're living in a world that you don't understand Find a few good buddies, start a band Start a band, start a band
And all those girls that were too cool to talk to, They'll be waiting in the line out back Might get your picture in the hometown paper Maybe buy your momma that Cadillac
Just get you a guitar and learn how to play Cut up some jeans, come up with a name When you're living in a world that you don't understand Find a few good buddies, start a band
Start a band, scrape up some money, buy a van Learn 'Free Bird' and 'Ramblin' Man' Never buy another beer again
So get you a guitar and learn how to play Grow out your hair, come up with a name With a little bit of luck you'll be packing the stands Find a few good buddies, start a band
No need to study, start a band Call up some buddies man, and start a band

Jasper from Nieuwegein, NetherlandsSomewhere in the song, they say "Start a band, learn Free Bird and Ramblin' man", which indicates the two guys in the song are great fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band...
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
