The Tubes

The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band, whose 1975 debut album included the hit single, "White Punks on Dope". During its first fifteen years or so, the band's live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics.[citation needed] They are perhaps best-remembered for their 1983 single "She's a Beauty", a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song "Dancin'" opposite a big band. more »

Young and rich 
Everything I desire 
Light bulbs with shades 
In every room 
And work is play--believe me 
Nothing must come too hard 
It comes in the mail 
Most everyday 

I could respect a man who had it all 
And he'd toss the ball away 
I know I'm not that kind 
I wouldn't mind to 
Have a chance thrown my way 

Famous friends 
Big parties for me 
Every night like tonight 
Am I a fool to want it all 

I could respect a man who had it all 
And he'd toss the ball away 
Because you know I'm not that kind 
I wouldn't mind to 
Have a chance thrown my way 

Young and rich 
With everything I desire 
Everything I need 
In every room 

With everything I desire 
Filling every room 
Everything I need--and maybe 
Some more things I don't need, you know 
Filling every room 
Everything I need 
Filling every room
