The Lyrics

Rock This Way

Backbone’s achin’ and my hands have started shakin’
And my hips need replacin’…they say
My bowels have just stopped movin’…liver spots need removin’
And my hair just keeps a-thinin' each day
I met an old groupie…acting kind of loopy
Said we met back in ‘69
My guitar I was strummin’… when she offered me some gummin’
But I told her that I must decline
This time

Wheelchair rollin' up the ramp to the stage
With a shriveled old dude with a bass
Singin' "tisket a tasket
Maybe riding in a casket…is the way
I should leave this place”
With my dressing room filled with assorted pills
And my tank of oxygen turned up high
Time to thank my Creator…for this new defibrillator
As my doctor and nurse stand-by
‘Cuz they help me to

Rock this way
Every day
Same replay
Hair is grey
New toupee
Sad display
In decay
Rock this way

Just gimme a hand
To stand…

Latin lover…she’s another Great Grandmother
Whitened streaks showin’ up in her hair
Chest is hangin’ way low…and her name…“Consuelo”
Gives an image I don’t think I can bear
Now I’m an Ex-Lax user… and a Geritol abuser
And I think Metamucil tastes swell
As I tour the nation…in a state of constipation
Straining each time I let out a yell
It’s hell…

Band is playin' with the crowd goin’ wild
But my bladder is ready to burst
Thinkin'…here in the middle
It’s a riddle where to piddle…so I jumped
From the stage head-first
Then I started to dance…in my spandex pants
And then I let out a horrible scream
All the fans started groovin’…but then they all started movin’
As they ran from my ‘aero” stream
And I showed ‘em I

Rock this way
So cliché
With dismay
All the way
No delay
Need to pay
Rock this way

Think we should be gone…?
Dream On !

Steven Tyler is getting up there isn't he... Aerosmith is still one of my favorite bands although he soon is going to have to walk this way with a walker.

One of today's best... Unlike the subject of this song, this parody will age well...

I have to repeat my above comment that I posted two days ago. This was a great parody, and you didn't get too cliche with the old fart jokes.

(ABC4-R) Well, I sure wasn't expectin' that from the title. Great work, IB! 555 for you!

(ABC) wow, that was very Kristofesque with all it's detail, IB - come to think of it, your style is quite similar to Kristof's so there's a compliment to stash away - some very clever gets and I love the way you got the idea then honoured it to the max - 555

(ABC-R) Yeah we older writers have our gimps and groans which reminds me the other day I went to the pharmacy because of a terrible jock itch. I asked the pharmicist what he had for the discomfort. He was probably Jewish, at least he sounded that way. He said walk this way and in by best Jewish accent I replied" If I coould valk that vay, I voudn't need the powdah". Badabing. This is a great write.

TMGLTM; excellent write. I had a hard time following some lines even though the rhymes appear to be in the same places as TOS (which has irregular rhyme placement and meter), but I know this could be recorded as-is. Extremely well done, IB. 555.

Pacing was PERFECT, Oh wow that was friggin hilarious. The second verse (both stanzas) were particularly amazing, the Latin Grandma and constipation lines were very well handeled. . .fantastic satire.

ABC- Can you believe the next Guitar Hero game is going to prominently feature Aerosmith? I wonder if it comes with a walker?? Anyways, very well done and hilarious, IB. - May 14, 2008 - Report this comment
