On The Cover Of Just Any Magazine

Author: Shel Silverstein Artists: Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show Album: Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show Song: On the Cover of the Rolling Stone

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

For your even greater comfort, this time we just include a link to the BVA (big video archive) and the lyrics, of course, but embed another great one of Uncle Shelby's songs, that we loved a lot when back home in the West Austrian provinces. We even saw and heard DHATMS play it in a town so small only local bands play there anymore.

Here's "The Cover Of The Rolling Stone": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4up6_OphOMY

(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

Yeah
That's an adequate comment! Und das erste Zitat ein ganz besonders tolles Beispiel für den "Umschlag von Quantität in Qualität".
