The Lyrics

JMJThis would have been funnier a couple years ago.
Don't wanna stay yesterday's news
As I wait for the bus in the pouring rain
This ain't the life that I would choose
Finances are strained
Back is in pain

Oh, give me some street love and green back dough
I once was a star singing rock-n-roll
I'm Dobie Gray
If you play it in B, then I'm in control
I know that I was born to sing rock-n-roll
I'm Dobie Gray

Beginning to think I'll lose my kind
Sick of takin' bus 42
And the ride to the assembly line
There's buttons to screw
What can I do?


And when my mind is free
Mem'ries of the '70's improve me
When I'm not on the stage
Monotony and rage consume me

There's just one thing I'd like to say
Pay me a fee and I'll sing you a song
Just don't ask me for Drift Away
I know I ain't wrong
I can sing strong

I have to ask...because I've seen it on other parodies of yours...what's with the JMJ?

It's a Catholic thing. It stands for "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph."
