Music: Lyric Sheets

Roger Daltrey, the former Who star, is appearing as Scrooge in a production of `A Christmas Carol' at New York's Theater at Madison Square Garden. A single, `God Bless Us Everyone' with The Harlem Boys Choir is released soon.

His eyes still blaze, a

cornflower blue

On Who Sell Out, the

cover.

And ponder on what stardom means

Sat in a bath of cold baked

beans

And lurking in the

wreckage then

Of Townshend's great

obsession

The drums smashed up, the p.a. dead

He swung his mike at

Moonie's head

The stubborn jaw and

hard-man glare

Would underpin the

toughness

From early adenoidal Mod

To buckskin, golden-

permed young god

He swaggered back with

rock and roll

From Goldhawk Road to

Narnia

Stuttering "My Generation"

In the sludge of Woodstock

Nation

While running mates from

other bands

Dropped back, collected

pensions

The centaur-chested Acton

yob

Got quietly on and did his

job

The acting roles and fish

farms came

But 31 years later.

You wonder if he'd fret

about

A headline reading: Who

Sell Trout.
