The Lyrics

OK, the full title of the song is "You Don't Gotta Get Real Stoned (If You Wanna Rock "n' Roll)", but the stupid system cut it off. That's so clumsy! Anyways, as you may already know, drug use is relatively common in rock 'n' roll bands, & someone even wrote a parody of the original song saying that you had to get stoned in order to rock 'n' roll. However, I disagree with that dude. You don't have to get stoned to rock 'n' roll. All you really have to do is write some really cool songs & some rockin' rhythms to go along with 'em. Oh yeah, and you have to be able to play an instrument good and/or sing good. Anyways, enjoy the parody, & don't drive under the influence! This message has been brought to you by the great Dylan Baranski, writing song parodies since 9-20-2006.
Goin' on a world tour,
Ride by plane & boat.
We are playin' so poor,
Hittin' all wrong notes.

Getting booed,
We have failed,
Got arrested,
Went to jail.

Posted bail,
We got owned.
I tell you what,
You don't gotta get stoned.

You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
If you think it's easy to play rockin' tones,
Try doin' it while you're stoned.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.

(rockin' bagpipe solo)

Now that we're out,
We know what to do.
We'll just write cool songs and
Rockin' rhythms too.

Now we're free,
Won't get stoned,
'Cause the cops might
Break our bones.

Stayin' straight,
Like Bob Dole,
That's all you gotta
Do to rock 'n' roll.

You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You just gotta write some real cool songs
There's no need for the bong.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.
You don't gotta get real stoned if you wanna rock 'n' roll.

You don't gotta,
You don't gotta,
(That's what I'm sayin')
You don't gotta,
You don't gotta!
P.S., AC/DC rules!!!!!!!!!!!

It was funny in parts but the pacing was a little off and ruined what could have ben a good parody.

Pacing is off? Funny, I checked the pacing a bunch, & it seems to check out. Perhaps you have not heard the original song?
