Any body know the artists and lyrics that did did this song. Can't even remember any of the other words but it was a duet by two hound dog sounding guys.

find a copy of dr hook and his medicine show album at a used cd and tape store. if it is not on a complete album by itself try a comp tape or cd. if you can find the complete tape you will enjoy the other songs on it. i used to play that song in my band a long time ago. it is tons of fun.

Andy,
Here are the lyrics. This song always was a blast!
Enjoy!!
Myrtle


THE COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE
(Shel Silverstein)

1. Well, we're big rock singers we've 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 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 Rolling Stone

CHORUS: [sung in two parts]
Rolling Stone (gonna see my picture on the cover)
Sto-o-o-o-n-ne (gonna buy five copies for my mother)
Sto-o-o-o-n-ne (gonna see my smiling face)
On the cover of the Rolling Stone

2. I got a freaky old lady name o’ Cocaine Katie
Who embroiders on my jeans
I got my poor old 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 Rolling Stone. CHORUS

3. We got a lot of little teenage blue-eyed groupies
Who do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian guru
Who’s teaching us a better way
We've 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 Rolling Stone. CHORUS

If my memory serves me well, this song was written by Shel Silverstein. He is on the edge of so much musical silliness.

Andy, you (or another Andy) have (has) asked for these lyrics a couple of weeks ago and there were many responses (including the lyrics). Perhaps you just do not know yet how to refind the old thread: Make a Forum Search (above, after leaving this particular thread) and enter Rolling Stone either under "body" or under "subject" and you´ll find it.

Wolfgang
