The Lyrics

July 19th, 2013 by Michael Tabor

Everyone of course thinks that putting the Boston bomber’s mug on the cover of The Rolling Stone was perhaps the worst editorial decision  made by any magazine, publication, etc. Ever !!!  So, since everyone is on the same page here, and chiming in on the egregiously obvious I thought I would just throw up the lyrics of the classic tune which satires success in the music business. Here they are:

Well, we’re big rock singers

 We got golden fingers

 And we’re loved everywhere we go…(That sounds like us)

 We sing about beauty and we sing about truth

 At ten thousand dollars a show…(Right)

 We take all kinds of pills that give us all kind of thrills

 But the thrill we’ve never known

 Is the thrill that’ll getcha when you get your picture

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

 (Rollin’ Stone…) Wanna see my picture on the cover

 (Stone…) Wanna buy five copies for my mother…(Yes)

 (Stone…) Wanna see my smilin’ face

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone…(That’s a very very good idea)

 I got a freaky ole lady name a cocaine Katy

 Who embroiders on my jeans

 I got my poor ole grey haired daddy

 Drivin’ my limousine

 Now it’s all decided to blow our minds

 But our minds won’t really be blown

 Like the blow that’ll gitcha when you get your picture

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

 (Rollin’ Stone…) Wanna see our pictures on the cover

 (Stone…) Wanna buy five copies for our mothers…(Yeah)

 (Stone…) Wanna see my smilin face

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

[Talking]

 Hey, I know how

 Rock and roll…

[Instrumental]

 Ah, that’s beautiful

 We got a lot of little teenage blue eyed groupies

 Who do anything we say

 We got a genu-wine Indian Guru

 Who’s teaching us a better way

 We got all the friends that money can buy

 So we never have to be alone

 And we keep gettin’ richer but we can’t get our picture

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

 (Rollin’ Stone…) Wanna see my picture on the cover

 (Stone…) Wanna buy five copies for my mother…(Wa wa)

 (Stone…) Wanna see my smilin’ face

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

 On the cover of the Rollin’…

 (Stone…) Wanna see my picture on the cover

[Talking]

 I don’t know why we ain’t on the cover, baby…

 (Stone…) Wanna buy five copies for my mother

[Talking]

 We’re beautiful subjects…

 (Stone…) Wanna see my smilin’ face

[Talking]

 I ain’t kiddin’, we would make a beautiful cover…

 On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone…

[Talking]

 Fresh shot, right up front, man…

 I can see it now, we’ll be up in the front…

 Smilin’, man…

 Ahh, beautiful… rollingsto

    Rolling Stone magazine should be banned for all time. Irresponsible decision rubbing salt into the wound. Why give this guy a place reserved for the greatest rock stars of all time? He is dirt that should be swept under the carpet. Shame on RS.
