When The Kid Gets Heavy
Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder - 3/14/1974




I
All my life I've been so meek and mildly mannered
When I wanted to speak up I was always hammered
Till I made up my mind that the kid would get heavy
Female Chorus
Kings may come and kings may go
But rock will reign forever
I
Power lies in these bass lines
When the kid gets heavy

The clarinet was not the place for me to stay
So I picked up and learned the bass guitar one day
And I made up my mind that the kid would get heavy.
Female Chorus
Kings may come and kings may go
But rock will reign forever
I
Power lies in these basslines
When the kid gets heavy
I
I'm down on my knees
But I'm not pleading.
Playin' my bass if you please
'til my fingers start bleeding.
Female Chorus
Kings may come and kings may go
But rock will reign forever
I
Power lies in these bass lines
When the kid gets heavy
