The Lyrics

Ok, so The Who's performace at Super Bowl 44 has gotten a lot of negative reception. Personally, I thought it was great, but Pete was rather embarrassing to watch. I think Roger pwned. This is a song about the whole deal as sung by Roger Daltrey from his POV.
They talk about our show now
They wished they were struck blind
Yeah, they're talkin' bout our show now
Saw notes of suicide
Yeah, every time we surf the web
The reception is unkind

Our performance was somewhat tragic
I can tell by all the trash talk
We tried to work our magic
But it ended up to be a flop
Every time Pete starts to smashin
The people yell "JUST STOP!"

I got the power to scream and bust your ear
I got the power to scream and bust your ear
But to all of the fans

Thanks for bein so dear
Oh BTW, I saw Tommy. Weird but awesome. And DANG IT was Roger D cute or whaat?

Actually, correction. Pete Townshend was INCREDIBLY embarrassing to watch. He was cute 30 years ago, but he tried too hard to act young that night. I'm like: DUDE button up ur shirt, lose the hat and glasses, and DO NOT do the MJ crotch grab (he almost did I think).

I thought they were pretty good. Not as good as they could've been but still good. And this parody was good

BTW... "The Hawker" in this case "The Talker".
