The Lyrics

I'm a big Who fan, but I'm not thrilled about the "new" album they are supposed to be working on. The bassman and drummer are dead. Hey, isn't that all that's left of the Beatles? Hmmmmmm...
This band is over
Just Pete and Daltrey
They're old and creaky
Their hearing's faultry

Two are in clover
And no excuses
Poor John and Moony
From drug abuses

They sing those songs to the very nostalgic
They sing with backup and they charge a high fee
Amidst derision for the sixteenth retirement
They sing those songs, elderly, elderly
They sing those tunes to the sixtyish faces
They sing the songs that they sold to T.V.
It's a decision that is prompted by dollars
They sing the songs for the fee, for the fee

When they walk onto the stage
See myself at a later age
And from the first note I holler "Dang!"
Gotta run and go and use the can

This band is over
The past behind me
They're almost dead now
They just remind me

They sing those songs to the very nostalgic
They sing with backup and they charge a high fee
Amidst derision for the sixteenth retirement
They sing those songs, elderly, elderly
They sing those tunes to the sixtyish faces
They sing the songs that they sold to T.V.
It's a decision that is prompted by dollars
They sing the songs for the fee, for the fee

This band is over
I'd rather stay at home
I will remember
When my eardrums were blown

This band is over
This band is over

Searchin' for a buck
Sure is easy
Playin' the past
As old death passes us by
