Heavy Metal Has-Been


His red spandex pants fit a bit too tight
His blonde wavy hair's falling out
Parents don't fear him, Young girls don't find him
To be much worth screaming about

Well you still find his records in the three for one rack
In the back of some old records store
He's a heavy metal has-been
And he ain't worth a shit anymore
He's a heavy metal has-been
And he ain't worth a shit anymore

He said he'd rather steal than get a real job
But I figure that's what he'll do
Cause who's gonna hire some strung out old singer
All covered with satanic tattoos

And he can't turn his amp up to ten anymore
Without his pierced ear getting sore
He's a heavy metal has-been
And he ain't worth a shit anymore
He's a heavy metal has-been
And he ain't worth a shit anymore

He used to sit on his bus drinking to us
And all of the money we'd spend
Drove a bright red Mercedes, Got him all the ladies
He never thought it would end
Now he's opening shows for some band no one knows
He's playing down at Rascals for the door
He's a heavy metal has-been
And he ain't worth a shit anymore
