Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Somebody once told me 
the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was lookin' kinda dumb 
with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well the years start comin' 
and they don't stop comin'
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 takin' the backstreets?
You'll never know if ya 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 shootin' stars break the mold

[Verse 2]
It's a cool place
and they say it gets colder
You're bundled up now
wait till ya get older
But the media men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satelite picture

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

[Chorus]

[Interlude]
(Record scratches over "Go for the moon")

[Chorus 2]
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 shootin' stars break the...

[Verse 2]
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 comin' 
and they don't stop comin'
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground runnin'
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but you're head gets dumb
So much to do so much to see 
So what's wrong with takin' the backstreets?
You'll never know if ya don't go
You'll never shine if ya don't glow

[Chorus 3]
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 shootin' stars break the mold
And all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the moldAllstar Tab by Smash Mouth

          Sorry, but that guy's tab isn't exactly right.  Here's mine:

          First of all, drop your guitar 1/2 step to Eb tuning, like this: (low
to high) Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb.

          The verses use the same pattern of chords over and over.  They are:
               low to high
          G  - x-x-x-4-3-3
          D  - x-x-x-7-7-5
          Am - x-x-x-5-5-5
          C  - x-x-x-5-5-3
          For example:
                  G          D  D            Am          C
          Somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me
          C           G             D  D       Am    C   C
          I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

          And so on.  Listen to the song and you can figure out the rhythm.  The
bass comes in just before the guitar chords do, so look at my bass tab that I'm
about to submit in a few minutes.  The guitar plays these chords throughout the
Pre-Chorus, (when the drums come in) but then it all changes for the chorus. 
Use these chords:

          G5    - 3-5-5-x-x-x
          C5    - x-3-5-5-x-x
          C#mb5 - x-4-2-0-x-x  ( C Sharp Minor Flat Fifth )
          F5    - 1-3-3-x-x-x

          G5                C5                C#mb5   C5
          hey now you're an all star get your game on go play
          G5               C5                C#mb5   C5
          hey now you're a rock star get the show on get paid
          G5           C5          C#mb5  C5           G5    F5
          And all that glitters is gold, only shootin' stars break
              G5
          the mold

          And then the solo: ( I don't have my guitar with me right now, but I
think this is it. )

          Eb----10-7-------6-7-6--5-3---------]
          Bb---------10-8---------------5-3---]
          Gb----------------------------------]
          Db----------------------------------]
          Ab----------------------------------]
          Eb----------------------------------]

          Then for the last verse, improvise.  Skip strings and pick something
          out of these chords:

          G   - 3-2-0-0-0-3
          D   - x-x-0-2-3-2
          Am7 - x-0-2-0-1-0
          C   - x-3-2-0-1-0

          Hopefully this helps.
