The Lyrics

This is from a complete irreverent parody of the MGM movie "The Wizard of Oz", renamed "The Doctor of Snooze"
(Unshoweredly Lion):
It's a rock and roll tradition
Moronic repetition
Makes the Billboard tops
But I could be a guitarist
Get the hell out of this forest
If I only had the chops

I would play a solo blazing
With lots of fuzz and phasing
And tons of light and props
If I showed some decorum
I might even play the forum
But I haven't got the chops

Oh I...could be the guy
You see on M.T.V.
With my back up band and roadies I could be
A Megastar...with a groupie

I'd be playing rock licks faster
Right on my telecaster
And pull out all the stops
I'd be smelling like a flower
And be selling discs at Tower
If I only had the chops

You had me at "Unshoweredly Lion". Great stuff!

Rick D - Sounds like me out behind "Espresso Gardens" ...except I really wouldn't want the fame, just the knowledge, skills and ability to play. That's not too much to ask for, is it? Except of course that "asking" doesn't make it happen. Something about Time & Work & Practice (sigh). Another really good one here....

The Lion do rock n' roll? That's weird!
