Like a Rolling Stone

Let's face it...the Rolling Stones just seem a bit too old to be playing concerts like their former selves. Let's parody their reality with the Bob Dylan song that is appropriate, "Like a Rolling Stone"

Once upon a time you played so fine
You had new songs in your prime, didn't you ?
People'd spit and say, "Please quit, you're milking it"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was just startin' out
Now you don't sing so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to retread 60s/70s hits for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a hit
Like a complete nitwit
Like a Rolling Stone git?

You've gone to the top of the charts, Mr. Fancy
But the last time was 89 so get used to it
And nobody has ever taught you how to grow old and retire
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
By just playing for money, but now you realize
You don’t have any other alibis
As you stare into your record companies unhappy eyes
And say can we please extend our record deal?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a hit
Like a complete nitwit
Like a Rolling Stone git?

You never turned around to see the frowns on the record buyers in town
When they all come down and listened to your new songs for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't stay in a musical rut letting fans beg for you
You used to come up with a good rockin’ original song
Even ones a person would sing along
Ain't it hard when you discover it’s all gone
This is no longer where you belong
After spinnin’ around in the same old hit machine wheel?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a hit
Like a complete nitwit
Like a Rolling Stone git?
