Who is that band the're been raving about'
Who is that band selling all the girls out'
They've turned the music bus'ness inside out
What is their name' It's on the tip of my tongue
You know the ones you must have heard the song
It's played a racket all day long

The critics acclaimed 'em said you boys are the end
You're gonna take over from our last weeks trends
You're gonna be huge once your advance to spend
Sonny watch your money cause now baby you're in rock 'n' roll

Well nobody's has heard' em till an hour ago
Well now they're livin' out on Malibu Beach
They got luxury homes and toilets with phones
