The Lyrics

There is already a parody of this song by Floyd's Garage that bashes Gene, Ace, Peter, and Paul (KISS). I figured I could poke fun at Styx (Dennis DeYoung, JY, Tommy Shaw, etc.), who scored hits with "Mr. Roboto," "Babe," "Lady," and "Come Sail Away."
Grand Illusion, Brave New World
Dennis DeYoung
Retired from this hard-rock band
They are old men
JY's probably 54
When will it end?
Tommy Shaw is 50 years old
Back in the seventies, I was unborn

Born in 1986
But Styx broke up
They came back without Shaw
In '94
They recorded a song for Greatest Hits
They re-recorded Lady! Yuck!


I'm glad Dennis DeYoung's out, baby
Yeah, after thirty years
He was so embarrassing
That robot song leads to jeers (Yeah)
But I love the songs, "Renegade,"
"Blue Collar Man," they're fly
"Suite Madame Blue" is six minutes
Glen Burtnik left, we cried

C'mon JY, your axe
Is out of tune
Your Fender Strat ain't cool
Tommy's Les Paul
Gibson only has three strings that are working
Marshall amps do not work at all


You guys used to be cool
Mr. Roboto
I loved Kilroy, Cyclorama
Domo arigato

John Panozzo passed away
Just let him rest in peace
It's the age, that Toxic's No. 1
Toxic's No. 1
Half the band has now retired
With the release of Cyclorama
I bought that album
And Greatest Hits, Cyclorama
Maybe I'll buy Kilroy Was Here

A robot named Kilroy
"The Best of Times"
"Too Much Time on My Hands"
And "Renegade"
How many times, Mr. Shaw, can you play those old songs???
I don't think you should keep calling yourselves

Song is alright, but the singer keeps changing his mind about "Kilroy"...does he like it or not? :0 444
