  • Do you smoke, do you drink do you yell out, "Hank"
    Do you fold it in your pocket do you lock it in the bank
    Jack it up, drop it down to the ground
    Put the juice in the goose or the Coke in the Crown

    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star
    Yeah, you can kick it back chillin' or you can rock hard
    You busted your ass all week
    And now, it's your time to be
    Whatever you wanna be
    You can dress to kill, you can shoot to thrill
    Try to seal the deal
    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star

    Do you kick the dirt, or work a Vegas stop
    Do you hit the strip, or roll a country mile
    Do you wear 'em uptight, or do you keep it loose
    Do you leave it in the truck or sneak it in, in your boot

    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star
    Yeah, you can kick it back chillin'
    Or you can rock hard
    You busted your ass all week
    And now it's your time to be
    Whatever you wanna be
    You can dress to kill, you can shoot to thrill
    Try to seal the deal
    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star

    Now, whether you're pimped up hangin' in the VIP
    Or way up high in the cheapest seats
    Hey, pretty mama, if you roll with me
    There'll be diamonds in the sky and the radio screen

    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star
    Yeah, you can kick back chillin' or you can rock hard
    You busted your ass all week
    And now it's your time to be
    Whatever you wanna be
    You can dress to kill, you can shoot to thrill
    Try to seal the deal
    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star
    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star

    Do you smoke, do you drink do you yell out, "Hank"?
    Do you fold it in your pocket do ya lock it in the bank?

    Do you jack it up or drop it down to the ground
    Put the juice in the goose or the Coke in the Crown

    Whatever makes you feel like a rock star

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

  • Camille from Toronto, OhI like the song and yet....
    I heard it for the first time today, Memorial Day weekend, and knew immediately that it's gonna be a big hit. It's also got one of those phrases in the chorus "whatever makes you feel like a rock star...." that's going to lend it to being used in movies and commercials and news clips...you get the idea. However, when I came to Songfacts and listened to it again, it started to sound quite a bit like another of Kenny's songs, "Summertime" (which I just love). I am a bit disappointed, because this song's got a similar musical intro, and a similar cadence to the verses and lyrics. Kind of like recycling an old tune.
  • Lukas from Reagan, TnI do believe this song has many Rock song references. For example "You can dress to kill, you can shoot to thrill" Dress to kill could be a reference to ZZ top's Sharp Dressed Man. Shoot to thrill is clearly a reference to AC/DC's Shoot to Thrill. And the line "There'll be diamonds in the sky and the radio screen" could be a reference to the Beatles' Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
