    Ever since he was a young boy, he played the lead guitar.
    He once tried playing rhythm, but didn't get too far.
    He whips out blazing solos for morons in a bar.
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays the lead guitar.

    Can he play slow and tasteful? Surely now you jest.
    Just fills in all the spaces, never takes a rest.
    He'll play you anything, as long as it's in 4.
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays the lead guitar.

    He's a guitar wizard, a self-inflated prick.
    The guitar wizard just plays another lick.

    Why do you think he does it? (I don't know)
    He's really not that good.

    Can't play nothing funky, he's just a shade too white.
    Can't play with sheer precision, he's really not that tight.
    But play some honky metal, and listen to him soar!
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays the lead guitar.

    (apologies to Entwistle):D

    Hey, that's the Swedish king! He doesn't play bass AFAIK. But he sure knows how to present an award! :)

    The melody is Pinball Wizard, right?

    I'm mailing that to our lead guitar player! :)

    I tried showing that to my guitarist over AIM and he didn't get it. Figures. :D
     
  15. That is tragically funny. It would be funnier if it weren't so true.
