The Lyrics

This original song was a prequel to "Tommy" Six very short songs woven into a "mini-opera"
Our band goes on
The time is now here
So we got to smoke a "J"
To ease our fear
Our band goes on
Our minds are too clear
So we have to smoke a "J"
To ease our fear

In this club our playing is a well-known sound
Our band is almost well-known, for the drugs we down
No point to try to shame us, c'mon be a sport
These song sound really heavy when we have a snort

Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha

We have a remedy
For the sour notes
A way to fix them up
These songs we wrote
We'll drink a dozen beers
And maybe wine
To fix our faulty ears
Then we will play for you

Ha ha ha ha ha urk!
Ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha burp!
Ha ha ha ha ha

We have a melody
Ha ha ha ha ha urp
We have a malady
Ha ha ha ha ha hic

We have a melody
Little pill why don't you start your magic?
It's gonna make us play all night!

My name is Wheeler
I'm a substance dealer
I know them well
I help to get them through
I'm on the staff
I'm on the management crew
I tell them I help them
But I'm a liar, I'm a plier
So let's make a toast for a hard rock survivor
So let's see how long you're a hard rock survivor

Please have a lift
Please take this bag from me
You'll be strung out
You'll fall in place
Maybe you'll stand up straight
You are a tool, and no MacGyver
So let's see how long you're a hard rock survivor
Better think twice if you want to survive her
Better think twice if you want to survive her

You'll soon come down
You'll soon come down
You'll soon
You'll soon, soon, soon come down
You'll soon come down
You'll soon come down
You'll soon
You'll soon, soon, soon come down

Mellow, mello, mello, mello, mellow
Mellow, mello, mello, mello, mellow
Mellow, mello, mello, mello, mellow
Mellow, mello, mello, mello, mellow

I think I licked it!
I do believe I've kicked it
Am I back healthy?
But not so wealthy

It's like a dream to be sober again
Can't believe that it's over, my friend

I missed out thought I think I tried
I downed a few and once I died
That Wheeler gave me lots of crap
And later I found out -I'm a sap!

I'm forty-seven
I'm forty-seven
I'm forty-seven
I'm forty-seven
(and on VH-1 "Whatever happened to.)

I've only heard the song once, but I give you 5's anyway just for thinking of doing it first (you cad!).:)

Brilliant! I was trying to do this one, but you beat me to it. Maybe someone will do a parody of Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE,

Q05- Don't have this OS on my 2 disc Who set and I don't think I've ever heard it before. Liked the ending.

(ABC) I've done enough stage work to know how tough it must be for some rock musicians to keep it lively and fresh night after frikkin' night on a long tour...but...the money must surely help... $ 555 (Monopoly money, of course).

(ABC Q) I think having heard the original song at least once, or having played in a band, probably would've helped me to appreciate this better. But it looks good as far aas I can tell.

(ABC) The song only faintly registers in my synapses, Rick...but I'll trust your pacing and give ya 555 cans of Bud on your rider.

A mere ten years late for 5s.
