hey Pete Townshend
i bet you never heard of me
just a geezer looking for my first hit
after 73 released.

there's something i need you to know
when i was a kid a long time ago
i didn't wanna be like you
i wanted to be you
so i wore my guitar down low

hey Pete Townshend
maybe now you heard about me
i recorded some of your songs
maybe i owe you a fee

i tried to sound a bit like you
a punk experimental version of the Who
some said Townshend may be proud
all the energy turned up so loud
maybe that's the next new thing

hey Pete Townshend
i want to pay you royalties
i'll give you what i owe you
then came chemotherapy

hey Pete Townshend
i bet you never heard of me
just a geezer from the states
with 74 released.

there's something i want you to know
i'll give you what i owe.
but my people made me the king
of the genre i sing
