The lyrics to "The Cover of the Rollin' Stone" kept floating around in my brain, so I came up with this:

 

* * *

 

On the Cover of Model Cars Mag
(to the tune of "The Cover of the Rolling Stone")

 

I don't believe it
Don't touch me
Hey Greg,
Hey Harry,
tell them who we are

Well, we're into model makin'
We also love bacon and we're loved everywhere we show
(That sounds like us)
We build little hotrods and tiny little sports cars at five-hundred dollars a go
(Right)
We sniff all kinds of spills that give us all kind of thrills but the thrill we'll never know
Is the thrill that'll getcha when you get your picture
on the cover of Model Cars Mag
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Model Cars)
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (Yes)
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my shiny car on the cover of Model Cars Mag
(That's a very, very good idea)
I got a freaky ole lady, name a cocaine Katy who snips parts off my sprues <<<
I got my poor ole grey haired daddy paying my model club dues <<<
Now it's all designed to blow our minds but our minds won't really be blown
Like the blow that'll getcha when you get your picture on the cover of Model Cars Mag
(Model Cars)
Wanna see our pictures on the cover
(Model Cars)
Wanna buy five copies for our mothers (Yeah)
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my shiny car on the cover of Model Cars Mag
Hey (Sure enough), I know how, air brush forever
Ah, that's beautiful
We got a lot of little teenage blue eyed groupies who do anything we say
We got a genuine Indian Guru who's teaching us a better way
We got all the PE that money can buy so building is never a drag (No)
And we keep getting older but we can't get our photo on the cover of Model Cars Mag
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my picture on the cover
(Model Cars)
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (I want one)
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my shiny car on the cover of Model Cars Mag
On the cover of Model Cars Mag (And us)
Wanna see my picture on the cover
(I don't know why we ain't on the cover, baby)
(Model Cars)
Wanna buy five copies for my mother (So beautiful fellows)
(Model Cars)
Wanna see my shiny car On the cover of Model Cars Mag
I ain't kiddin' ya, it would make a beautiful cover
Macro shot, right up close man
I can see it now, it'd be on the front, shinin' man
Aah, beautiful

That's funny! I've heard cover versions by Jackyl & Poison, of this song & it's just too cool! I can picture Jesse James Dupree & Bret Michaels singing it now.... Lol

I keep hearing the beginnings of a song in my head...

 

But it's aaaaaaall...........riiiiiiiiiight........now

in fact it's a gas,

But it's aaaaaaall...........riiiiiiiiiight........

Model Cars Mag, it's a gas, gas, gas....

 

But I can't get any further.

 

Maybe I'll call my old drinking buddy Keith and see if he has any ideas...  ^_^

Glad you all like it

 

Chuck, I'll talk to Larry the Cable Guy about doing the video. He looks more like a modeler than anyone I can think of.

 

John, keep singing it. We'll put you in the video too

 

Mike, momma would pound them blue eyed groupies if she caught them lookin' my way

 

Harry, I would think "Harry Koenig Junior" would be able to knock those Rolling Stone lyrics out in no time. Aren't you channeling him?

 

"Very pleased" is an understatement, I am honored. I picked up my issue #179 Wednesday and saw the "Coming Next Month" shot; Awesome. Cannot thank you and the rest of the MCM crew enough for your support of the hobby.
