Wrong Star

Record your cover version

Girl got nice boots
Sparkle-stripe pant suit
Working at a photo-shoot
Kinda freaky

Dude got a nice car
Dresses like a drug czar
Plays a lot of air guitar
Kinda creepy

She followed the wrong star
Doesn’t understand
What she’s doing in Marina Del Mar
With this kind of man

He came out of Fargo
Had a local TV show
Went as far as he could go
But never said it

Met her at a screen test
A back room in Key West
She was always second best
Didn’t get it

He followed the wrong star
Not what he planned
Laying low in Marina Del Mar
With his head in the sand

Someday we’ll hit LA
Take that town by storm
Until then we’ll be OK
Staying loaded and warm

His fantasy diorama 
A trouble-free sugar mama
Smoking in his pajamas
With a pistol

She’s a little bi-polar
Thought she had a high-roller
Both of them lost their molars
From the Crystal

They followed the wrong star
Not what they planned
Dry dreams in Marina Del Mar
Crinkled and tanned

They followed the wrong star
Not what they planned
Burning out in Marina Del Mar
Hand in hand
