An Interesting Challenge

We were throwing this around at work tonight. Yeah, we sit around and bullshit a lot. I found it pretty entertaining.

Who can guess this classic rock song first provided with the fewest lyrics clues?

First Word: Nobody

Oh, that's too easy.

Nobody loves me, everybody hates me
Think I'll go and eat worms
Long ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones
See how they wriggle and squirm

I bite off the heads, and suck out the juice
And throw the skins away
Nobody knows how fat I grow
On worms three times a day
Ohh...nobody loves me.


What did I win?

WTF? Is that really a song? Sorry, Tom, you're off the mark.....I guess it counts as a guess, though, so you get the next clue/word:

Nobody gonna

Of course it's a song. A real classic, too. I suppose it wasn't exactly a rock anthem, though.

Famous anthem, perhaps not, but I think it certainly classifies as "rock."

You got me. Somebody figure this out. I've never seen anybody win this challenge with just one rather common word.
