(Verse 1: Movement I)
I'm gonna' be a back door singer.
You can be my back door strings 'a.
I'm gonna' be a concert artist,
Doin' that back door thing 'a.
I'm gonna' be a star of sorts,
With ladies screamin' at my vocal cords,
Living in New York penthouse forts,
Driving all kinds of brand new Fords.

(Verse 1: Movement II)
In the evening,
I'll get kinda' lonely and say,
"Let a lovely in."
She'll come wide-eyed and halfway homely.
I'll say, "Honey, where've you been?"
She'll say, "Oh Andy, gimme' some candy.
Sing your latest song for me.
I'll play a couple, Since I'm so supple.
In the morning I'll have V. D.
Oh, In the morning I'll have V. D.

(Chorus)
Oh, I don't wanna' be a rock 'n roll star.
I don't wanna' be no king.
I'm just a man who plays guitar,
Not a god with a magical thing.
I don't wanna' be a rock 'n roll star.
I don't wanna be no king.
I'm just a man who plays guitar.
I wanna' keep it, A simple thing. Alright.

(Verse 2: Movement I)
I'm gonna' be a back door player.
You can be my back door queen.
I'm gonna' be the Crimson Slayer,
Doin' that graveyard scene.
I'm gonna' be a star of sorts,
With the people listenin'
To my soft reports,
Livin' in the back of a '49 Ford,
Painted with the sign of the Crimson Sword.

(Verse 2: Movement II)
In the evening,
I'll get kinda' lonely,
And wonder where it will end.
You'll come wide-eyed and say, "It's only
A space in time my friend."
You'll say, "Oh Andy, Gimme' some candy.
Sit up and talk to me."
You'll smile your dimples and I'm so simple,
I'll be sleepin' while you're leavin' me.
Yeah, I'll be sleepin' while you're leavin me.

(Repeat Chorus)

A Travis Pick set me off on this. My son said it sounded like the theme to "Gilligan's Island."
