Teenage Idol

This song is by Gary Moore and appears on the album Victims of the Future (1983).

Never did much good when he went to school.
Too many teachers, there were too many rules.
A dirty faced kid, he was never outta trouble.
His Mom and Poppa told him better get out on the double.
But when he heard that music on the radio,
He knew one day he was gonna be a teenage idol.

He quit his job at the factory.
He was tired of makin' peanuts, so he jumped out of the tree.
He couldn't wait another day to get out of that place.
He punched the clock, and he broke its face.
But when he heard that guitar on the radio,
He knew one day he was gonna be a teenage idol.
Teenage idol.

He is a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.
Yeah.

He dumped his chick and he sold his car.
He bought himself a hot guitar.
He joined a band and they cut some tracks.
He hit the road and he's never looked back, oh no.
And now they're playing all his records on the radio.
And everybody knows, he's gonna be a teenage idol.
Wow.

He is a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.
He's just a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
He's a teenage idol, he's way out of control.

And now they're playing all his records on the radio.
Everybody knows that he's gonna be a teenage idol.
Teenage idol.

He is a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
He's just a teenage idol, he's way out of control.
He's a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.

We're talking about a teenage idol.
You know what I mean.
He might be in your town next week,
So just look out.
Get those tickets while they're hot.
