Uncle Shelby will be dead for 12 years on May 10th. Lest we forget about the manyfold funnies by which he eased our pains here by the waters of Babylon we remember 1 of his most comforting ones. And it makes for a good contribution to our "Great Jews Songs" Topic

(Hey Ray, hey sugar, tell them who we are!)
Well, we're big rock singers, we got golden fingers
and we're loved everywhere we go
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
at ten thousand dollars a show
We take all kinds of pills, that give us all kind of thrills
but the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
when you get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover of The Rolling Stone
I got a freaky old lady name o' Cocaine Katie
who embroiders all of my jeans
I got my poor ol' grey haired daddy,
who's drivin' my limousine
Now it's all designed to blow our minds
but our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha
when you get your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover of The Rolling Stone
We got lots of little teenage blue eyed groupies
who'll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru,
who's teachin' us a better way
We got all kinda' friends, that money can buy,
so we'll never have to be alone
And we keep gettin' richer
but we can't get our picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone, wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (I want one!)
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover The Rolling Stone

What's their name now made the cover

On the cover of the Rolling Stone,
wanna see my picture on the cover
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
Wanna see my smiling face
On the cover of The Rolling Stone
