Cover of the Rolling Stone ~ Dr. Hook

(I don’t believe it.)

(Don’t touch me.)

(Hey, Ray, hey Sugar, tell ’em who we 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.

We take all kind of pills
To give us all kind of thrills
But the thrill we never known
Is the thrill that’ll gitcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of Rolling Stone …

Rolling Stone …
Gonna see my picture on the cover
Stone …
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
Stone …
Gonna see my smilin’ face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

(That’s a very very good idea.)

I gotta freaky old lady name o’ Cocaine Katy
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor old grey haired daddy
Drivin’ my limousine.

Now it’s all designed
To blow our minds
But our minds won’t really be blown
Like the blow that’ll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of Rolling Stone …

Rolling Stone …
Gonna see my picture on the cover
Stone …
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
(Yeah!)
Stone …
Gonna see my smilin’ face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

(Hey, I know how!)

(Rock ‘n’ roll!)

(Oh, that’s beautiful.)

We got a lotta little teenaged blue-eyed groupies
Who’ll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru
Who’s teachin’ 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 Rolling Stone …

(Uh uh.)

Rolling Stone …
Gonna see my picture on the cover
Stone …
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
(I want one!)
Stone …
Gonna see my smilin’ face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

(Right up front, man, I can see it now,
We’ll be on the front, smilin’, man,
Aw, beautiful …)
