Rock and Roll

Lyrics

Lala, if, If I die before I wake

I pray to rock my soul to take

If I die before I wake

I pray to rock my soul to take

Shake it, Yeah, here goes

Mr. preacher, yes I’ve sinned

I’m in a rock’n’roll band

And all those women, yes I choose

And I’m the one in demand

Confrontations with the law

You know I’ve done my time

Getting high, scotch and rum

Let me tell you they are friends of mine

 

I will cheat and I will steal

For the rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

Yes I will, yes I will

 

Don’t need no money, don’t need no wife

I live a rock’n’roll life (he lives a rock’n’roll life)

So all you teachers and you kings

I’m gonna rock it tonight (he’s gonna rock it tonight)

Hey there, hey there, hey there scum

Hey there rock’n’roll clowns (Hey there rock’n’roll clowns)

Call me freak, call me nothing

I’m the one who’s gonna rock you down

 

I will cheat and I will steal

For rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

To the rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

Yeah yeah yeah

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

 

Rock and roll

What are you living for?

Rock and roll

What are you living for?

Rock and roll

What are you living for?

Rock and roll

Come on

 

I will cheat and I will steal

For rock and roll

For the rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

Oh, to the rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

Oh, to the rock and roll

When I die, I give my soul

To the rock and roll

Rock and roll

Are you ready to deal it rock?

Rock and roll

Ahh, the dealer

Rock and roll

Ahh, the dealer
