Our tribute to our favorite musical heroes, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who.

Lyrics

They met in school
Nobody's fool
They made a bet
To smash the city
Crush the country
Plans were set
Had their doubts
No A&R scouts
For Elvis they were not
One small with jutting jaw
The other a big nose full of snot

But they made hay
As the Detours found their way
But the tour became a bore
They wanted more

Pete Pete Pete Pete
Rog Rog Rog Rog

Mods and rockers
Scooters and choppers
Pick a side
Aces faces
Moon's manic thunder
Future open wide
Pictures of Lily
Not so silly
Write a quick one while he's away
Woodstock is stoked
Won't go broke
Rock opera wizards they ruled the day

But paradise won't last
You can't relive the past
When you reach your dreams
There's a price to pay
To pay
To pay

Pete and Roger

Play every day
Pete and Roger

Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Stay that way
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Play for me today
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Pete and Roger
Stay always
Ohhhh

The fragile peace is blown
Insults hurled
Punches thrown
Trust is shot
Though it's not
The end of their song

Windmill armbone
Lasso microphone
Shattered speaker cone
Knees would quake
Baba wasteland
Join together
Slip kid nation
Ears need a break
Keith and John
Too long gone
Those old bones
They'd never make

Now only two
Stand tall
No tea or sympathy
Needed at all
Never to lose
Their might
Cause the kids were alright
Alright
Alright

Those kids those kids were alright
Townshend Daltrey

Those kids were alright

I don't mind
All those guys dancing with Milton Berle
