Play That Cheap Trick, Cheap Trick Play
(Tommy Womack/ Rick Neilsen)

1
I’ve been to London, I’ve been to Rome
Played my shows and come back home
The golden goose ain’t landed yet
This is as good as it’s gonna get
IPod’s playing old Cheap Trick
My oh my, you’ve grown up quick
Trying to keep this kitchen clean
That’s all real life really means

CHORUS
Another dollar, another day
I shouldn’t look back but I do anyway
Dad’s in the ground, Mom’s on the way
Play that Cheap Trick, Cheap Trick play

2
Pull those records off the shelf
Sit up late and doubt myself
Ain’t no fuss and ain’t no sweat
This is as good as it’s gonna get
Love my son and love my wife
Try like hell to love my life
Jesus is my saving grace
But I don’t always know my place

CHORUS

3
I’ve played the game and sowed some oats
Rammed myself down peoples’ throats
Banged my head against the wall
All in all I’ve had a ball
A hundred bucks to play three sets
This is as good as it’s gonna get
The future’s shorter than the past
My oh my you’ve grown up fast

CHORUS

TAG
MOMMA’S ALRIGHT, DADDY’S ALRIGHT
The boy’s alright, WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT, WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT.
