Lyrics
Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow

[Chorus:]
Hey now you're an All Star get your game on, go play
Hey now you're a Rock Star get the show on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older
But the media men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
My world's on fire. How about yours?
That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored.

[Chorus 2x]

Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas
I need to get myself away from this place
I said yep what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change

Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never shine if you don't glow.

[Chorus]

And all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the mold

ahahaha YES this is excellent! Oh man, I started laughing out loud halfway through and just kept chortling till the end, I was just so delighted! Then when it was over I had to say "awwwwwww" and I CLAPPED because what a happy and joyous thing this is. Thank you very much for making it, festividder! I especially love that you included so many of my favourite Lego LOTR moments - the Rohirrim musical ride! The hot Legolas/Gimli action! Elves being dorks! GIMLI COCKING HIS AXE LIKE A SHOTGUN, YES. And all the bananas! This is everything I dreamed of. <3 <3 <3

Awww, this is darling! Super impressed at how you included all the delightfully goofy moments, and used this song, and also had all the serious parts and they felt right and accurate. Loved it.

This is so great! A wonderful combo of silliness and seriousness. It made me feel tender towards all these characters! And oh man the Rohirrim in a circle on the song's bridge is just perfect, the timing just cracked me up.

Very cute and funny, love what you did with "what's wrong with taking the backstreets" for example, and the use of the Rohirrim horse ballet (and the bananas) during the music bridge is epic. I also like that this feels like an ensemble vid, everyone gets a moment somewhere, All Stars indeed. Very lovely! :D
