THE COVER OF "ROLLING STONE"
Dr. Hook


THE COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE
Dr & the Medicine Show

(talking...) Ha ha ha I don't believe it
Da, da, ah, ah don't touch it
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... (that sounds like us)
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten-thousand dollars a show... (right)
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 gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the rollin stone

(Rollin stone...) Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Stone...)Wanna buy five copies for my mother... (yes)
(Stone...)Wanna see my smilin face
On the cover of the rollin stone... (that's a very very good idea)

I got a freaky ole lady name a cocaine Katy
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ole grey haired daddy
Drivin my limosine
Now it's all decided to blow our minds
But our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the rollin stone

(Rollin stone...) Wanna see our pictures on the cover
(Stone...) Wanna buy five copies for our mothers... (yeah)
(Stone...) Wanna see my smilin face
On the cover of the rollin stone
(talking) Hey, I know how
Rock and roll...

Ah, that's beautiful

We got a lot of little teenage blue eyed groupies
Who do anything we say
We got a genu wine Indian Guru
Who's teaching us a better way
We got all the friends that money can buy
So we never have to be alone
And we keep getting richer but we can't get our picture
On the cover of the rollin stone

(Rollin stone...)Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Stone...) Wanna buy five copies for my mother... (wa wa)
(Stone...) Wanna see my smilin face
On the cover of the rollin stone
On the cover of the rollin...
Stone...) Wanna see my picture on the cover
(talking) I don't know why we ain't on the cover, Baby...
(Stone...) Wanna buy five copies for my mother
(talking) We're beautiful subjects...
(Stone...) Wanna see my smilin face
(talking) I ain't kiddin, we would make a beautiful cover...
On the cover of the rollin stone...
(talking) fresh shot, right up front, Man...
I can see it now, we'll be up in the front...
Smilin, Man...
Ahh, 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".
