Sad Tale Of The Old Rock And Roller
SAD TALE OF THE OLD ROCK AND ROLLER
Whether you're a preening pop star
Or a deep rock star searching for the truth
You might lose a lot of your fanbase
When you lose a lot of your youth
When you are travelling around
Still playing a lot of gigs
This isn't just for show anymore
You really do need those wigs.
You used to think you were so tough
A real mean rock n roller
But it doesn't look so good with your teeth all gone
You're down to your last molar.
When you were younger you missed some gigs
Because of the bad company you were keeping
Now if there's any danger of not showing up
It's because you're just lying around sleeping.
You used to be a real rock legend
Strutting round the stage like a king
Now you've hardly got enough energy
To open your mouth to sing.
You always lived life on the edge
Had a real passion to roam
Now you feel you'll have to settle
For a place in the rock n roll old folks home.
