Sing a song for Lester Bangs
Sing a song for those who live
Any 3 minutes and 26 seconds
Has so much it could give
Someone finds God on a scratched 45
Each and every day
Sing a song for Lester Bangs
Itís so sad he passed away

But ainít it funny how we almost knew it then
That even if we held our breath it never had to end
And ainít it funny now that weíre the ones who choose
To look to these losers as winners
When we have so much to lose

Sing a song for 8 Track
Sing for Quadraphonic Sound
Your Jeep Beats will be just as obsolete
When the next phase rolls around
Thereís a kid out there with a hard drive somewhere
And he or sheís just learning how to lay (and theyíre learning fast)
And that kidís going to come along pretty soon
And blow us all away (and I canít wait)

Sing a song for Sid Vicious and Elvis
And Lennon and Coltrane and Hendrix
Sing a song for the everyday airplane crashes
That took them all away
And while youíre at it
Sing a song for Lester Bangs
Itís so sad he passed away
So sad

I would love to hear the music that goes with this song. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it an 11!
Excellent. I really, really liked this.
