Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
Miscellaneous
Joe
My name's Joe I'm the CEO
Yeah I'm the man makes the big wheels roll
I'm the hand on the green light switch
You get to be famous I get to be rich

Go get me a kid with a good-lookin' face
Bring me a kid can remember his place
Some hungry poet son of a bitch
He gets to be famous I get to be rich

(Chorus)
Or bring me a girl
They're always the best
You put 'em on stage and you have 'em undress
Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
Hey now that's what I call music

Well they'll come lookin' for money when the public gets bored
But we'll fight 'em with lawyers they could never afford
Yeah I'll make her look like a spoiled little bitch
She gets to be famous I get to be rich

-Chorus-

So burnt-out Johnny thinks our books are shifty
What good's that alchi to me when he's fifty
We could move catalog if he'd only die quicker
Send my regards to the gig and a case of good liquor
He gets to be famous I get to be rich
He gets to be famous I get to be rich

My name's Joe I'm the CEO
I'm the man makes the big wheels roll
