"Rock 'n Roll McDonalds" as written by and Wesley Willis....
McDonald's is the place to rock
It is a restaurant where they buy food to eat
It is a good place to listen to the music
People flock here to get down to the rock music

Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's

McDonald's will make you fat
They serve Big Macs
They serve Quarter-Pounders
They will put pounds on you

Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's

McDonald's hamburgers are the worst
They are worse than Burger King
A Big Mac has twenty-six grams of fat
A Quarter-Pounder has twenty-eight grams of fat

Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's
Rock n Roll McDonald's

Rock on London
Rock on Chicago
Wheaties, breakfast of champions

    General CommentThis is a very complex song. It goes much deeper than surface looks. Willis is expressing our views of life, and death... He is almost ripping at our very souls with his crude lyrics and poor singing as if to say "I am human, I am man, I am all". Or I could be wrong, it could just be some whacko singing about McDonalds.

    General CommentI completely agree with moozig, this song is very complex. But I think it is about Wesley's ex-girlfriend and how he views lon-term relationships.
    "ROCK ON LONDON, ROCK ON CHICAGO
    WHEETIES !!!! BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS"
    This line is obviously a metaphor on how Wesley views the political system of the mid 17th century in London, which we all know Wesley knows too much about......
    OR MAYBE HE'S JUST SOME DRUNKEN HOMELESS GUY WITH A SYTHESIZER..... WHO KNOWS :(

    General Commentwesley willis is actually declaring fatigue and frustration with the greed off the upper class. they feed us fast food and hormone treated beef to fatten us for slaughter.

    or he could be some schizo street urchin who likes head butting passers-by.

    General Commentman, this song is deep. i mean this guys really gets into some crazy shit about life and how all things come to an end sometime. i still cant figure the entire thing out.

    General Comment...I don't know if you guys are serious are not with the deepness, I can't tell if your just kidding.
    But I don't think this song is about anything but McDonalds.
    I've heard Wesley Willis (not to be disrespectful) is semi-retarted, or at least has some kind of special thing about him. He thinks he is a big rapper and wets himself when he is on stage if he gets too excited.
    He was homeless and only had a 80s Casio keyboard from K-mart, and if you notice the music in his songs are the built-in music from the keyboard, with the occasional fill-in.
    I love Wesley Willis, and I'm sure you could look deeper in his songs and find some great meainings, but I bet all that was in his mind when he wrote this was McDonalds.

    General CommentI think Willis explains the depths of depression one faces in the battle against the bulge. The way he expresses the fact that McDonald's will fatten you up, using it's "rock and roll" to entice you to stay there and eat.

    Just think about those grams of fat, man.
