Yeah
[They were kings]
Everybody got to know
Everybody got to sing
Yeah

I gotta tell everybody about it
1, 2, 3, go!
Hey

[They were kings]

Alright, rock ‘n’ roll music don’t need to be such a drag
There’s a whole lot of bands that put my head in the bag
Crazy dog music that make you want to flip
Say yeah baby and put your hands on your hips
So good, so fine and they were living in my lifetime

Talk about the borders got to get right
The Gories were first, out of sight
Mickey, Peg, Danny were cool
Thunderbird baby, ESQ
Long before the gaultnet was thrown down
They inspired the scene, give ’em the crown

They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Rock ‘n’ roll, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
There were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Everybody got to know
Everybody got to sing
C’mon Travis!

B, b, b, b

Thinking some more about a band that’s great
Destination: Lonely in Ohio state
6 strings of fury twice, look out man
Cheater Slicks burning up a Chevy Van
14 levels above you and me
And they are kings buddy

Shannon Brothers honey know the hardest slop
They’ve got taste for spit
From a psychedelic record shop
Dana Hatch is working at the counter of the White Castle
Yes
[They were kings]
Misunderstood geniuses of rock and roll
Wearing sideburns

They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Rock and roll, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
There were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Everybody got to know
Everybody got to sing
C’mon Matt Verta-Ray

B, b, b, baby

Oh, C’mon
Let’s do it
They were kings, everybody
[They were kings]
They were kings, everybody
Yeah
[They were kings]
Rock ‘n’ roll, baby
Ohhh
[They were kings]
There were kings, baby
Don’t you see
[They were kings]
Everybody got to know
[They were kings]
Everybody got to sing
[They were kings]

Way out in the desert in the Arizona sun
Two crazy ladies men made their own kind of fun
Looking at the people at the highway, then
Shooting bows and arrows like it ain’t no thing
Deep down south, get with it dad
I’m talking about the great Doo Rag

I’ve heard the blues in a suspicious way
Down at the Junket that’s where Thermos would play
Everything homemade you should have heard them sing
Through a vacuum cleaner, man they were kings
They were kings everybody living in my lifetime

They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
They were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Rock and roll, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
There were kings, baby
Yeah
[They were kings]
Everybody got to know
Everybody got to sing
Yeah
Yeah

They were kings, mother fucker
[They were kings]
Oh, mother humper
They were kings, mother fucker
Yes
[They were kings]
They were kings alright
[They were kings]
Ladies and gentlemen you know it’s alright
[They were kings]
Ohhh, yeah
There were kings
