"Rock N Roll EGA" as written by and Daniel Johnston....
There was a day when I was so lonely
Time passed me by I was more dead than alive
Every minute was like an hour
Every day was an eternity
I looked for hope but all around me people didnt seem to care
but oh... that rock N roll
It saved my soul
That Rock N Roll
If I ever thought that I could be happy
Seems like that allways faded away
And all the girls allready had boyfreinds
I was alone as lonely could be
I layed asleep and turned on the radio
The music to me was like a dream
Oh.. that rock N roll
It saved my soul
That Rock N Roll
walk around but youve gotta have a reason
Something worth getting up in the morning for
My heart looked to art and I found the beetles
The thought I wasnt in the true deciples
Look for the fun and youll start a happy cycle
The music will make you come alive
Oh that rock N roll
It saved my soul
That rock N roll
She was crying Just like a baby
didnt wanna fight, or more like maybe
Gotta get on home at night
Seet the petal to the right
See the love in a dulge tree
and wonder who was in the outfeild
Swear I know the truth and I aint wearin no bunny suit
I got some doller on high look out

    General CommentUmmm... it's from the album "Fun" foremost.

    I thought it was only played in that scene where that dude fantasizes about himself being in a band in a music video.
