The Lyrics

not me baby.. my band is an ac/dc tribute, but we lost a great "shredder" guitarist to a metal band.. we play, they
ahh the drugs lie...
on a cold and grey Toronto mornin,
another rockin band is goin' heavy metal
and their agent cries
cause if there's one thing that won't make cash
it's another stupid band doin speed rock thrash,
heavy metal

people, they don't understand,
they want to make it grand
and they'll grow to be a stadium band some day
take a look are we a bore?
listenin to M.O.R?
do we simply turn our heads,
and close our ears today?
as the worm turns

and a rockin heavy band with a tune they wrote
do rehearsals when they can,but they can't hit a note,
heavy metal
and their agent burns...
then one night, through perspiration,
a mosh pit broke away,
he jumps on out, to excite them more,
but this band sucks, they let him hit the floor,
heavy metal
as their future dies....
on a cold and grey Toronto mornin,
another rockin band is goin' heavy metal

Manowar says: "All men play on 10", so youŽll have to settle for 5s. :-)
