"Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll" as written by and Porter Grainger Everett Robbins....
Well, rock 'n rollin' holiday
Rock 'n rollin all the way
Rock 'n rollin' to the end
'Till the saints go marchin' in

Now when the saints go marchin' in
Well, when the saints go marchin' in
Yeah, Lord, I want want'a be in that number
When the saints go marchin' in

Well, now when Nick, comes wailin' in
Yeah, when old Nick comes wailin' in
Oh, Lord, I want want'a be in that number
When that guitar comes wailin' in

Well, now when Rudy begins to blow
Well, when old are you-Dy starts to wail
Yeah, Lord, I want want'a be in that number
When that sax man starts wailin' in

(Here we go now)
Well, when that rhythm comes wailin' in
Yeah, when old Rapper starts to wail
Well, Lord, I want want'a be in that number
When old Rapper comes wailin' in

Now when the band plays rock 'n roll
Well, when the Comets rock 'n roll
Yeah, Lord, I want want'a be in that number
When the Comets play rock 'n roll
(All together now)

When the saints go marchin' in

    General Commentyup, this song is kinda funny, but it's definitely not Axl, Duff, Slash, Izzy or anyone of 87-93 era Guns singing. and none of them wrote it. so why it is called GnR song??

    General CommentAt first I wasn't sure if this was GNR or not, but it turns out it isn't. This is actually called 'War on Drugs' and is by a band called Laughing Colors. I hadn't heard of them before, but it's a cool song anyway.

    General CommentI have only heard a live recording of this song. My feeling is this is probably just Axl alone.
