The Lyrics

he was a dirty band member
my mama just can't remember...who, she did
but that was the day...i was realized
she never got a chance to meet him
never heard nothing...twas the last she heard from him
mama, i'm descended from you....but who was the dude ?

and mama just hung her head and said
son, papa was a rolling stone
whichever one...it was dark...i don't know
i never spied...so his cover wasn't blown

well, well

hey mama, is it true what they say
that papa was a rock star all his life
and mama...some bad talk going around town
saying that rock stars often have children
that aren't from their wife...and that ain't right
they talk about rock stars and the groupies, they're seeking
girls losing control..till they're barking and squeaking
squealing ?...you bet...and feeling like they've got their reward

mama just hung her head and said
son, papa was a rolling stone
whichever one...it was dark...i don't know
i never spied...so his cover wasn't blown

hey mama...i hear rock stars live lives, so depraved
tell me...is that why papa so crudely behaved ?
folks say it was mick, brian, keith...or maybe bill
not charlie
i say that papa must have not been thinking
what's wrong with his mind ?...dead from smoking and drinking ?
mama...i'm just feeling confused...please tell me the truth

and mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said
son, papa was a rolling stone
whichever one...it was dark...i don't know
i never spied...so his cover wasn't blown

A cautionary tale. 5s

I can't believe I didn't think of this idea! Lets see: Iffin he's got huge lips...he's Micks'; Iffin he's as skinny as a pipecleaner- Keiths'; If he's easy to forget- one of the other band members that nobody remembers... and if his favorite number is 5, then he must be Alvins'! 555 (Never liked the OS...but this redeems it!)

Now why the hell didn't somebody think of this one before? LOL. Just excellent. It was flat out funny, clever and made great use of the OS. I'd say it was a gas, gas, gas. Oh no, wait, that's another song. Let's just say it was a 5,5,5.

Yep, great idea all right. Liked the "not charlie" line best, for some reason. Funny stuff!

Well, I share Keith Richards' birthday, but that's about it. Ever see the SNL where Mick was played by Mike Myers and Keith by... Mick? A regular riot. As for Jimmy Fallon's impression of Mick, well, he should stick to Enrique Iglesias and Eminem.
