  • Oh is he more, too much more than a pretty face
    It's so strange the way he talk, it's a disgrace
    Well I know I've been out of style
    For a short while
    But I don't care how cold you are
    I'm coming home soon
    I'm gonna make you a star, yeah

    Well he say he's into his music
    But I don't believe it
    He just doesn't seem to understand the rock media
    Well I know I'm not super hip
    And I'm liable to take a slip
    But I don't care how cold you are
    I'm coming home soon
    I'm gonna make you a star, yeah, yeah

    We gonna make ya a star
    We gonna make ya a star

    Oh is he more, too much more than a pretty face
    (I don't think so)
    It's so strange the way he talkin', it's a disgrace
    Well I know I've out of style
    For a short while
    But you see I don't care how cold you are
    I'm coming home soon
    I'm gonna make you a star, yeah

    We gonna make ya a star
    We gonna make ya a star
    We gonna make ya a star
    We gonna make ya a star
    We gonna make ya a star Writer/s: DAVID ESSEX
