is actually singing "An out-of-tune Les Paul'll get me by" This

song appears on the Japanese release of Twice ...Shy It
was released in the U S.only. on a single and, is now available on Great White's Greatest Hits Well

I'm a wasted rock ranger I
live the life of danger On
the road to find a higher high I
don't need no one's affection All
I need is my injection The
music of wild rock will get me by I've *

been doin' gigs since I was ten I
really can't remember when I
ever had a dollar to my name My
ears are blown my, eyes are red I
got big holes inside my head Snorting
too much crystal and cocaine I

have bennies with the breakfast toast Qualudes
with the evening roast Assorted
snorts of powder in between I
don't think a day's gone by That
I wasn't drunk or high It's
the only way I keep my sanity From

Kegger's Den to Hooterville My
flaming tricks have topped the bill A
thousand empty bottles earn my name Endless
trains of one night stands Sharing
gigs with half-assed bands And
all the local groupies lay the same Well

I could have had a payin' job Workin'
for some fucked-up slob Wife
and family true, security But
I left that shit behind For
that heavy metal grind 'Cause
rock'n roll is in my blood to stay (among
other things) Hey

You're! a wasted rock ranger You'll
live life of danger Sing
this song and follow it till the end When
you reach number one You
can overdose for fun And
go and visit Jimi and his friends Hey

You're! a wasted rock ranger You'll
live a life of danger Sing
this song and follow it till the end When
we reach number one Hey
We'll! all overdose for fun And
we'll hang out with Jimi and his friends Yee

    This song was banned in the 80's and could only be found on the "b" side of once bitten twice shy single cassette. My boyfriend was in a band so this song to me, always made me think of him and how much he partied! It is a really fun song but i don't think it was meant for people to run out and do drugs.
