Tommy Icarus


When Tommy was a young boy, all he wanna do is rock, rock, rock
But daddy had other plans for him, but he wouldn’t listen to his talk, talk, talk
He broke the rules coz it wasn’t cool
He’s gone and flunked right out of school
But when he picked up his guitar
The boy was a shooting star
And once he starts he can never stop


He’s a rock and roller, high achiever, going straight to the top
Trouble maker, sharp shooter, moving like a juggernaut
It’s not about the fortune and fame
He just wanna play the game
And Icarus was his name


Stuck in his hometown, he knew he’ll never get far
So he packed up his guitar and ran, and that’s when he broke his momma’s heart
He’s gotta get right outta there
He’s gotta get himself a band
Playing from bar to bar
The boy was a shooting star
And once he starts he can never stop
