The Lyrics

This is about three member because two are dead because of ODs and one is in big trouble. And where is Roger you ask?
Once, there was the drummer
Had a drinking problem so the doc prescribed him pills
But then once he went to sleep
He had never woken up after that
His autopsy revealed
He took too many pills

mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Once, there was the bassist
Spending time in Sin City to promote his artwork
But then he made a mistake
He had cocaine the night before the tour
He had a heart problem
And died after snorting

mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Pete and Rog continued without
A bad way to pay respect

And now, there's the guitarist
Smashing and windmilling making fans so very happy
But now, he's in trouble
He was busted for looking at kiddie porn
He said it was for research
The Cops didn't buy it.

mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

ahh ahh(The) ahh ahh(Who), ahh ahh(The) ahh ahh(Who)
ahh ahh(The) ahh ahh(Who), ahh ahh(The) ahh ahh(Who)
