Lyrics

U Stink Version

We see the pretty boys, we see the Barbie girls,
Climbing their way up the charts

We see the videos,
Where all the fashion plates
Lip-sync their ways to your hearts

Well no offense to them,
And no offense to you
Don't take it personally

But when it comes to rock,
And when it comes to roll
Don't need to sell it,

'Cause it's born to be free!
(Free, free)

Don't want nothing but the music!
Don't need the shiny limousine!
Don't want nothing but the music!
Love it or leave it,
The music is all I need

The TV interviews, the glossy magazines
We see the stars' every move
The Grammys pilling up,
The money pouring in
But tell me, what does it prove?

'Cause real rock' n roll,
Is all about your soul
So hey, when push comes to shove

Forget about the fluff,
The music is enough
I'm sticking with the stuff
That dreams are made of,
It's love!

Don't want nothing but the music!
Don't need no People Magazine!
Don't want nothing but the music!
I'm pledging allegiance,
The music  is all I need!

Nothing but the music!

Backstreet Boys Version

[Verse 1 - Fern]
We see the pretty boys, we see the Barbie girls,
Climbing their way up the charts

We see the videos,
Where all the fashion plates
Lip-sync their ways to your hearts

Well no offense to them,
And no offense to you
Don't take it personally

[Pre-verse 1 - Kevin]
But when it comes to rock,
And when it comes to roll
Don't need to sell it,

'Cause it's born to be free!
(Free, free)

[Chorus - Fern, Kevin, A.J., Brian and Howie]
Don't want nothing but the music!
Don't need the shiny limousine!
Don't want nothing but the music!
Love it or leave it,
The music is all I need

[Verse 2/1 - Brian]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah once upon a time,
Turned on the radio
When I was feeling so down
(When I was feeling so down)

[Verse 2/2 - Howie]
And all at once I heard
The future calling out
My heart filled up with the sound
(With the sound)

[Verse 2/3 - Kevin]
Might play a stadium,
Or audience of one
But one thing I know is true

[Verse 2/4 - A.J.]
No matter who you are,
The music is the star

[Pre-verse 2/4 - Nick]
And we're just here
To let the music shine through!
(Shine through)

[Chorus - Fern, Binky, Molly, Mrs. MacGrady, Francine, Kevin, A.J., Brian, Howie and Nick]
Don't want nothing but the music!
(Yeah)

Don't need no People Magazine!
(No magazine)
Don't want nothing but the music!
I'm pledging allegiance,
The music is all I need!
(Need, yeah)

Don't want nothing but the music!
Don't need some hip and trendy scenes
(Hip and trendy scenes)
Don't want nothing but the music!
I'm pledging allegiance,
The music is is all I need!
(Need, yeah)

Nothing but the music!
(The music, the music, the music)
Nothing but the music!
(The music, the music, the music)
Nothing but the music!

(WOO!)
