Joe 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 lookin' 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 you have 'em undress
Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
Hey, now that's what I call music

Well, they'll come lookin' for money when the public gets bored
But we'll 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 you 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 alchy 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 role
