Lyrics

Every night I have the same conversation
Side stage, someone raves,
says "you know what you should do?
Let me tell you"

"There's a fortune that you could be making
if you played stuff everybody knows
they would love you
they would love you"

It's hard enough to keep the fire burning
now cover bands are booking nights at Massey Hall
Abuse it and you lose it
when it comes to music
Music Town ain't musical at all

Once more so you understand
I don't play in a cover band
I'm not covering anything
Take the money on easy street
singing somebody's masterpiece
no thanks, babe, not for me

There's nothing wrong with a good reproduction
but it hurts when the government funds it
I'll tell you
what do we do?
Every wedding night
Every rock club
Every festival
they've all got one
they've got two
some kind of tribute

It's hard enough to keep the fire burning
now cover bands are booking nights at Massey Hall
Abuse it and you lose it
when it comes to music
Music Town ain't musical at all

Once more so you understand
I don't play in a cover band
I'm not covering anything
Take the money on easy street
singing somebody's masterpiece
no thanks, babe, not for me

I can't help that this whole world is upside down
knock off the Mona Lisa
sell it to the crowd
Am I jealous? Ya, I guess that's how this sounds

Once more so you understand
I don't play in a cover band
I'm not covering anything
Take the money on easy street
singing somebody's masterpiece
no thanks, babe, not for me
