Tonight, I’m a Rock ‘N’ Roll Star

Was listening to Oasis’ Definitely Maybe album before I hit the sack after class today, and really got into this one song, Rock ‘N’ Roll Star, so I started playing it over and over. I even got out the guitar and played it a few times. I got so into it because I was feeling pretty irritated at people outside of SBTS denigrating me and others simply because we go to school here, so the song just spoke to me loudly at that moment.

When I woke up I was pretty quiet the rest of the day, especially through dinner. That was mostly because I still had this song on the brain, and I was trying to come up with a Christian version, thinking about how sometimes we’re looked down upon and how we’re driven by fads in our churches and personal walks. Here’s what I came up with on what little sleep I had today.

SBTS Star by Stephen Newell

Lived my life at seminary
There’s no easy way out
My class movin’ just too fast for me
I need some time with the Savior
I’ve gotta slow it right down
My class movin’ just too fast for me

I live my life for the Word that shines
People say it’s just a waste of time
When they said I should feed my head
That to me was just a day in bed
I’ll take this fad and trash it bad
Cause you’re not concerned about the faith I had
In my heart my Lord is real
Now you’re concerned about the way I feel

But tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star

Live my life in the church house
There’s no easy way out
The sermon is just too fast for me
I need some time with the Savior
I’ve gotta slow it right down
The sermon is just too fast for me

I live my life for the Word that shines
People say it’s just a waste of time
When they said I should feed my head
That to me was just a day in bed
I’ll take this fad and trash it bad
Cause you’re not concerned about the faith I had
In my heart my Lord is real
Now you’re concerned about the way I feel

But tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern star

You’re not down with who I am
Look at you now, you’re all in God’s hands
Tonight

Tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern Seminary star
Tonight, I’m a Southern star

It’s just SBTS
It’s just SBTS
Get off your high horse, people
It’s just SBTS
It’s just SBTS
Let’s come to Him and worship
It’s just SBTS
It’s just SBTS
Praise the glory of His grace

    that’s hilarious. You’ve ruined the song for me. I dont’ think I can hear the song without thinking of this now!
