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

Now tickets to concerts, and drinking at clubs
Sometimes for music that you haven’t even heard 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 which 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 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
You drinking what they’re selling
Your self destruction doesn’t hurt them
Your chaos won’t convert them
They’re so happy to rebuild it
You’ll never really kill it
Aw, yeah…
Excess ain’t rebellion
You drinking what they’re selling
Ooh, Excess ain’t rebellion, ah
You drinking, you drinking, aw yeah
You drinking what they’re selling
Oh, yeah.
All-right
Oh
Yeah
All……..right!




I love CAKE [the band and carrot : )]. Saw them years ago at The Ritz in Raleigh (now Disco Rodeo) and it was a great performance! Aw yeah.
