Now dig this
I was grooving down the road
just the other day
I saw this little nubile thing
just passin' by my way
I said listen baby
I'm a rock and roll star
and I got some news for you
she turned around and looked at me
just like she come out of school.
And she said
you're cool, I said that's true
she said, you're very cool man
I said, so are you baby
she said, what time do you play
cos I might just be able to stay
I thought I was beginnin' to get through.
I smiled as I put my hand in my coat
and I said I'm the man for you
she looked at me with those big blue eyes
and she smoked a whole cigarette through
she said, which band do you
play for man
and I tried to clutch some air
I said, we are playin'
down the hall tonight
it'd be nice if you got it there.
I thought I was gettin'
on to somethin big
I said to all my friends
she's comin' down to the gig.
So she come out back after the show
and her friends came with her too
one with a great big scar and one
from the local zoo
I said, hey baby
can't we go some place
just you and me alone
she said, this is my boyfriend
Silas man, and my big kid
I said, Oh shame on you
I could not believe that it was true
but I suppose on the whole that's
rock and roll
