Hey Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey Hey
Hey Stoopid

Hey bro, take it slow
You ain't livin' in a video
You're flying low with a high velocity
No doubt, you're stressin' out
That ain't what rock n' roll's about
Get off that one way trip down lonely street

Now I know you've been kicked around
You ain't alone in this ugly town
You stick a needle in your arm
You bite the dust, you buy the farm

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
What ya tryin' to do
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
They win you lose
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid

C'mon girl, it's a better day
Get your foot out of that grave
Don't let that one love tear your world apart
C'mon babe, kick that stuff
Show the street it ain't so tough
Quit lyin' around with a crippled, broken heart

Now I know you've been seeing red
Don't put a pistol to your head
Sometimes your answer's heaven sent
Your way is so damn permanent

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
What ya tryin' to do
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
They win you lose
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid

This ain't your daddy talkin'
You know, I know
Your story ain't so shockin'
You know, I know
Blow some steam
C'mon and scream

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
What ya tryin' to do
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
They win you lose
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
What ya tryin' to do
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey stoopid
They win you lose
Hey, hey, hey, hey, Ohhhhh..

C'mon man, what you trying to do
Yeah yeah yeah
If you do that, they win you lose
Hey Stoopid

Song Information

"I get letters all the time that say, 'I'm fourteen and I'm going to kill myself', and I'm trying to figure out what's so bad that's causing that. Rock and Roll is a celebration, it's a party, it's not so heavy - and if it is, get help, because you shouldn't be thinking of snuffing it at the age of fourteen! There was a double-edged sword there too, because I know that a lot of rock and rollers are falsely accused of promoting suicide, and so I want to get Halford on this for some background vocals - and Axl, Ozzy, Sebastian - and have a whole outlaw choir on there, only because I think it makes a point. The last thing we want to see is those kids out there dying."
