Let me tell you something you don't seem to understand
I don't really care about your crappy local band.
Don't you tell me I can't tell you what to do
I can, on the whole,
'cause I work for a magazine
and I wrote a book about rock and roll

I wrote a book about rock and roll
I wrote a book about rock and roll
I think rock and roll is wonderful
and I wrote a book about rock and roll

I know words like "sobriquet," "malaise" and "plutocrat."
And I compare the Shaggs to Wittgenstein--
how cool is that?
Oh, you don't? I didn't think you would.
Aren't my references out of control? Sometimes I even stump myself,
but it's all in my book about rock and roll.

I wrote a book about rock and roll
I wrote a book about rock and roll
rock and roll is in my soul
so I wrote a book about rock and roll

hey yeah yeah, rock and roll

if you start doubting me
there's something you should see
take a look at these
thousands of CDs
no one has more than me
and I got all of them for free

Hey, thanks for the free CD, I can sell it at the store down the block
And don't be surprised if I say "kiss my ass"
that's how rock and rollers talk (like me)
but you better treat me right
'cause I'm mean and powerful
but you'll never be a reference in
my next book about rock and roll

I wrote a book about rock and roll
I wrote a book about rock and roll
rock and roll is wonderful
so I wrote a book about rock and roll
