Narrator: A long ass fucking time ago in a town called Kickapoo
There lived a humble family, religious through and through
But, yeah, there was a black sheep and he knew just what to do
His name was Young JB and he refused to step in line
A vision, he did see of fuckin’ rockin’ all the time
He wrote a tasty jam and all the planets did align

Young JB: Oh, the dragon’s balls were blazin’ as I stepped into his cave
Then I sliced his fuckin’ cockles with a long and shiny blade
’Twas I who fucked the dragon, fuck a lie sing fuckaloo
And if you try to fuck with me then I shall fuck you too

Gotta get it on in the party zone
I gotta shoot a load in the party zone
Gotta lick a toad in the party zone
Gotta suck a chode in the party zone

Father: You disobeyed my orders son, why were you ever born?
Your brother is 10 times better than you, Jesus loves him more
This music that you play for us comes from the depths of hell
Rock and roll’s the Devil’s work: he wants you to rebel
You’ll become a mindless puppet, Beelzebub will pull the strings
Your heart will lose direction and chaos it will bring

You better shut your mouth, you better watch your tone
You’re grounded for a week, with no telephone
Don’t lemme hear you cry, don’t lemme hear you moan
You gotta praise the Lord when you’re in my home

Young JB: Dio can your hear me, I am lost and so alone
I am asking for your guidance
Would you come down from your throne?

I need a tight compadre who will teach me how to rock
My father thinks you’re evil but, man, he can suck a cock
Rock is not the devil’s work, it’s magical and rad
I’ll never rock as long as I am stuck here with my dad

Ronnie James Dio: I hear you brave young Jables
You are hungry for the rock
But to learn the ancient methods
Sacred doors you must unlock

Escape your father’s clutches
And this oppressive neighborhood
On a journey you must go
To find the land of Hollywood

In the city of fallen angels
Where the ocean meets the sand
You will form a strong alliance
And the world’s most awesome band

To find your fame and fortune
Through the valley you must walk
You will face your inner demons
Now go, my son, and rock! …

Narrator: So he bailed from fucking Kickapoo with hunger in his heart
And he journeyed far and wide to find the secrets of his art
But in the end he knew he would find his counterpart
