about

a cautionary tale of a washed up 1970's teen Pop TV star--literally: found him face down in the pool. don't try this at home kids.

lyrics

Way, way back in the ‘70’s
when celebrity crushes were everything
There was a star of the TV screen
he couldn’t have been more than 17.

With money to burn
and plenty to spare.
The Gliterati, Pavarotti
all were there.
The tabloid papers all would swear
that David Cassidy couldn’t even compare.

But he got hooked on Heroin
Strung out and broke
you’re going down like Marilyn
but there was a time when you used to sing
Sha La La La

Wouldn’t it be nice to press rewind
and let your super-model girlfriends
one last time
smile and sign your name on the dotted line
they’’ll leave you One and take Ninety-Nine
(they’’ll leave you One and take Ninety-Nine.).

When you’re hooked on Heroin
Strung out and broke
you’re going down like Marilyn
but there was a time when you used to sing
Sha La La La

You got strung out
and you lost out
people say you lost your cool
early morning
when they found you
lying face down in the pool.
Sha La La La
