Cover of the Rolling Stone
(Shel Silverstein / Arr.: Ko-Do)
Version 2018

 
Well, we're big rock singers, we got golden fingers
and we're loved everywhere we go
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
at ten thousand dollars a show
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 get you when you get your picture
on the cover of The Rolling Stone

Chorus
Rolling Stone - wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smiling face
On the cover of The Rolling Stone

I got a freaky old lady named Cocaine Kitty
who embroiders on my jeans
I got my poor ol' 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 The Rolling Stone

We got a lot of little teenage 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'll never have to be alone
And we keep gettin' richer but we can't get our picture
On the cover of The Rolling Stone
