Cover of the Rolling Stone -- Dr. Hook
Stuff in brackets [] is some dude talkin'. Other stuff is the singer.

Well, were big rock singers, we got golden fingers
And were loved everywhere we go [ that sounds like us ]
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten thousand dollars a show [ right ]
We take all kind 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 Rollin' Stone

Rollin' Stone,
Wanna see my picture on the cover
Wanna buy five copies for my mother [ Yeah! ]
Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover the cover of the Rollin Stone

I got a freaky old lady name a Cole King Katy
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ol' grey haired daddy, 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 Rollin' Stone

-- CHORUS --

We got a lot of teenage blue eyed groopies who'll do anything we say
We got a genuine Indyan guru, who's teachin' us a better way
We got all the 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 cover of the Rollin' Stone

Rollin' 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 cover of the Rollin Stone
On the cover of the Rollin' Stone
Wanna see my picture on the cover [ I don't know why we ain't
On the cover, baby ]
Gonna buy five copies for my mother [ were beautiful fellows ]
Wanna see my smiling face, [ I ain't kidding ya ]
On the cover the cover of the Rollin Stone [ Ah, we would make a
Beautiful cover ]
[ The first shot, right up front man, I can see it now... we would
Be on the front smilin' man, ahhhhh beautiful ]


DR. HOOK

Dr. Hook (& The Medicine Show) were formed in Union City, New Jersey, USA in 1968. The original lineup consisted of Ray Sawyer, Dennis Locorierre, Bill Francis, John David and George Cummings - although there were countless lineup changes over the years.

Two years after Sawyer left in 1983 the band split up. Since then Sawyer has begun touring as "Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer" and Locorierre has also promoted himself as "The voice of Dr Hook".
