Well, your CD collection looks shiny and costly
How much did you pay for your bad Mato Guzzi?
And how much did you spend on your black leather Jacket?
Is it you or you parents in this income tax bracket?

Now tickets to concerts, and drinking at clubs
Sometimes for music that you haven't even herd of

And how much did you pay for your rock and roll T-shrit,
That proves you were there, that you heard of them first?

Now, how do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
Oh, tell me.
Oh yeah, alright.
Alright.
ah yeah
alright oh.

How much did you pay for the chunk of his guitar,
The one he ruthlessly smashed at the end of the show?

And how much will he pay for a brand new guitar,
One he'll ruthlessly smash at the end of another show?

And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones.

And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
(As long, aw yeah aw awwww)
As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones.

Yeah, aw, yeah, aw, yeah, all-right!
Huh, oh haw how huh

Aging black leather
And hospital bills
And tattoo removal
And dozens of pills

Your liver pays dearly now
For youthfull magic moments
But rock on completely
With some brand new components

Now, how do you afford you rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?
All-right, aw yeah.
So good.
Oh baby.

Excess ain't rebellion
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
You drinking what they're selling
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
Your self destruction doesn't hurt them
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
Your chaos won't convert them
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
They're so happy to rebuild it
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
You'll never really kill it
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
Aw, yeah...
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
Excess ain't rebellion
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
You drinking what they're selling
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
Ooh, Excess ain't rebellion, ah
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
You drinking, you drinking, aw yeah
(How do you afford your rock 'n' roll lifestyle?)
You drinking what they're selling
Oh, yeah.
All-right
Oh
Yeah
All........right!
