The Lyrics

well. i was thinkin' last night
the beatles were a premium band
started thinkin' 'bout wings, babe
they play my songs rather sloppily
cause this crew is crappy
but the beatles were neat
it was so sweet

i didn't believe, then...(i didn't believe, then)
the beatles were a premium band
they were a sixties dynamo...awfully convincin', its true
we were installed as rock's royalty
but a break-up happened...just a quarter, i'd be, of that main fleet

why'd we fall out ?
the beatles were a premium band
we were sixties dynamos, with our songs catchin' fire
we'd come to town and the place would freak
so we toured all over and pulled our rank
it was so sweet

the break occured, but i wasn't scared
i was a big star, self-assured, breakin' the mold
do do do do
the beatles, dead and my time begun
i gathered musicians...ho hum
oh no...this can't be so
and then it occured to me
my new band was bad
the beatles were rad...and premium too
but those sixties dynamos...don't wanna hook up no more
now i'm alone

Meh...I never rated The Beatles. Sgt. Pepper; what was THAT all about? (You know I'm kidding, right?) 555

They made rock music sound like something adults wanted to hear. They and the Bay Area bands took rock out of the bubblegum rut.

Agree with the story, never-ever even heard the OS as far as I know...I tried very, very hard to avoid all things Wings back then, with pretty fair success, for the most part...real good read, though.
