The Cover Of The Rolling Stone
Shel Silverstein
Hey Ray, hey sugar, tell them who we are)

Well, we're big rock singers, we got golden fingers and we're loved everywhere we go (That sounds like us)
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth at ten thousand dollars a show (Right)
We take all kinds of pills, that give us all kind of thrills but the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll get you when you get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (Yeah!)
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover of The Rolling Stone

(That's a very very good idea)

I got a freaky old lady name o' Cocaine Kitty who embroiders on my jeans
I got my poor ol' grey haired daddy, drivin' my limousine
Now it's all designed to blow our minds but our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (Yeah!)
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover of The Rolling Stone

(Hey, I know how...)
(ROCK AND ROLL!)

(Aww, dats beautiful)

We got a lot of little teenage blue eyed groupies who'll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru, who's teachin' us a better way
We got all the friends, that money can buy, so we'll never have to be alone
And we keep gettin' richer but we can't get our picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (I want one!)
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover The Rolling Stone

On the cover of the
Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover (I don't know why we ain't on the cover, baby)
Gonna buy five copies for my mother (We're beautiful fellows)
Wanna see my smiling face (I ain't kidding ya)
On the cover of The Rolling Stone (Ah, we would make a beautiful cover)

(The first shot, right up front man, I can see it now)
(We would be on the front smilin' man)
(Aahhhhh beautiful)
