    Lyrics

    My name's Joe, I'm the CEO
    Yeah, I'm the man makes the big wheels roll
    I'm the hand on the green light switch
    You get to be famous
    I get to be rich

    Go get me a kid with a good-looking face
    Bring me a kid can remember his place
    Some hungry poet son of a bitch
    He gets to be famous
    I get to be rich

    Or bring me a girl they're always the best
    You put 'em on stage and ya' have 'em undress
    Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
    Hey, now that's what I call music

    Yeah they'll come looking for money when the public gets bored
    I will fight 'em with lawyers they could never afford
    Yeah I'll make her look like a spoiled little bitch
    She gets to be famous
    I get to be rich

    Or bring me a girl they're always the best
    You put 'em on stage and ya' have 'em undress
    Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
    Hey, now that's what I call music

    So burned out Johnny thinks the books are shifty
    What good's that alkie to me when he's fifty
    Well we could move catalog if he'd only die quicker
    Send my regards to the gig and a case of good liquor

    He gets to be famous
    I get to be rich

    He gets to be famous
    I get to be rich

    My name's Joe. I'm the ceo
    I'm the man makes the big wheels roll.
