Not Fakin' It

Not Fakin' It

Michael Monroe

Jolly Ollie was a stool pigeon
On the payroll of the F.B.I.
Reverend Jim sold instant religion
With a license from the man in the sky
Billy the Kid was a gunslinger
Edgar Wallace was a dead ringer
Me I'm just a rock 'n' roll singer
Keyhold John was a bird watcher
Had a telephoto lens in each eye
Jack the Ripper was a cool stalker
But his birds no longer fly
James Joyce was a mudslinger
Jesus Christ was a forgiver
Me I'm just a rock 'n' roll singer
I'm not fakin' it
Foolin' myself that I'm makin' it
I'm not fakin' it
Tricky Dicky was a fast talker
But his promises were always a lie
Nostradamus was a doom watcher
Predicted when we're gonna die
Cleopatra was a love giver
Jesse James was a born killer
Me I'm just a rock'n'roll singer
I'm not fakin' it
Foolin' myself that I'm makin' it
I'm not fakin' it
