John Lennon

My defenses were so great. The cocky rock and roll hero who knows all the answers was actually a terrified guy who didn't know how to cry. Simple.

Rock And Roll Is Dead

Ooohoooh yeah
You think you're on top of the world
But you know it's really over
Runnin' round with diamond rings
And coke spoons that are overflowin'
Rock and roll is dead
But all the money in the world
Can't buy you from the place you're going to
Ooohoooh yeah

Rock and roll is dead [X3]

You can't even sing or play an instrument
So you just scream instead
Oh yeah
You're living for an image
So you got five hundred women in your bed
Oh yeah
Rock and roll is dead
But it's real hard to be yourself
When you're living with those demons in your head
Ooohoooh yeah

Rock and roll is dead [X3]

Rock and roll is dead [X7]

something_hells the Rock and Roll Mothercutters

I have a barber in Kingsley Course
Where Ageing Rockers Go
By Sweeny Tod he was trained
To cut hair as white as snow

He trims hair with a flick Knife
not scissors any more
And bills are always paid on time
Or ears end on the floor

Throats are just the thing to trim
if he dont like your discourse
So Mods and Punks you'll despair
If you enter Kingsley Course

For this is the place where Rock and Roll lives
And DA'S are a matter of Course
Where Egg and bacon, the food of spives
Is eaten with Chocolate sauce

p.s I hate chocolate sauce; of course
this place really exists why not google it or even better gothere yourself!

The Death Of Rock And Roll

Just the other day I got a call from a friend
"I heard what you been playin' and I think it's a sin
Why can't you make a living like the rest of the boys
Instead of fillin' your head with all that synthesized noise?"
Jackals wait nearby, watching rock and roll die
And no one dared to help it
Vultures fill the sky
I thought we was supposed ta, supposed ta be free
But we all got sold
It must be the Death of Rock and Roll
The critics got together and they started a game
You get your records for nothing
and you call each other names
Things got out of hand and somebody got sore
Now we're all tuning up for the Rock and Roll War
Time to take up sides, helping rock and roll die
Pick up your check at the window
No one left to cry
I thought we was supposed ta, supposed ta be free
But we all got sold
It must be the Death of Rock and Roll
Nobody paid, nobody played, nobody stayed
Just my lonely guitar
Nobody paid, nobody stayed, nobody played
Just my lonely guitar

Rock And Roll Dream

Rock and roll dream
Not what it seems
Who is the dreamer now?
When I see the faces from the limousine
No chance of our survival
Armed forces, the guardians of the law
Awaiting our arrival
They all are young
We all were young
And I've seen this place before
Open up the door
Let us in
All the things I've seen
Words I said, I didn't mean
Feelings, I took for granted
But now reality
One thing we could never see
Everything, we always wanted
They all are young
We all were young
And I've seen this place before
Open up the door
Let us in
Rock and roll dream
Not what it seems
Who is the dreamer now?
Rock and roll dream
Not what it seems
Who is the dreamer now?
If I had the choice
Words came through my voice
I should have left unspoken
Now it's obvious
Clear to all of us
The dream that now is broken
Take the stage tonight
Go face the lights
With this image you should keep
But you're crying in your sleep
Tonight
Rock and roll dream
Not what it seems
Who is the dreamer now

Jesus said to pilate, remember the golden rule:

Baby, everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll,
Rock and roll across the usa.>
Wichita said to crazy horse,
horse, we're gonna let you choose
cause you'll have the huntin' ground of the reservation blues
You'd better slide over sitting bull-over, we got a highway coming through.
Baby, everybody knows that the wheel's gotta roll
Rock and roll across the usa, yeah-yeah-yeah!

Rock And Roll Music

Just let me hear some of that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it,
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me
I've got no kick against modern jazz
Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And change the beauty of the melody
Until they sound just like a symphony
That's why i go for that that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it,
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me
I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks
So she can hear my man awail a sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man, they were goin' like a hurrican'
That's why i go for that that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it,
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me
Way down south they gave a jubilee
The jokey folks they had a jamboree
They're drinkin' home brew from a water cup
The folks dancin' got all shook up
And started playin' that that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it,
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me
Don't care to hear 'em play a tango
I'm in the mood to gear a mambo
It's way to early for a congo
So keep a rockin' that piano
So i can gear some of that
Rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lost it,
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me

Rock And Roll Pussy

Beat it, beat it, beat your guitar
Smash it, smash it, 'til its sees stars
Rip it, rip it, rip it to shreds
Throw down your axe and then jump into bed
Get up, get up, get up and see

Rock n Roll Hero

I sold my soul to rock n roll, when it didnt cost a thing
Stacks of scratched up 45s and taught myself how to sing
What does it take to be a rock n roll hero, just like the king
Livin your life in a blaze of glory, burnin it up in a smoke filled club
Givin your soul to the world
Chorus:
Like a rock n roll hero, a soldier of fortune in the night
Like a rock n roll hero, when the white hot lights cut thru the night
And the sound of the thunder starts roaring
Thats when you know what youre savin it for
And youre feeling like a rock n roll hero
I owe it all to rock n roll, and I wouldnt want to change a thing
Got this old guitar strapped round my neck, and my baby waitin in the wings
What does it take to be a rock n roll hero, just like the king
Livin your life in a blaze of glory, a spark in your eyes
A flame in your soul, givin it all to the world
(chorus)
Yes youre feeling like, oh youre feeling like
(chorus)
(like a rock n roll hero, like a rock n roll hero)

Rock And Roll Never Forgets

by Bob Seger
So you're a little bit older and a lot less bolder
Than you used to be
So you used to shake 'em down
But now you stop and think about your dignity
So now sweet sixteens turned thirty-one
You get to feelin' weary when the work days done
Well all you got to do is get up and into your kicks
If you're in a fix
Come back baby
Rock and roll never forgets
You better get yourself a partner
Go down to the concert or the local bar
Check the local newspapers
Chances are you won't have to go too far
Yeah the rafters will be ringing cause the beat's so strong
The crowd will be swaying and singing along
And all you got to do is get in into the mix
If you need a fix
Come back baby
Rock and roll never forgets
Oh the bands still playing it loud and lean
Listen to the guitar player making it scream
All you got to do is just make that scene tonight
Heh tonight
Well now sweet sixteens turned thirty-one
Feel a little tired feeling under the gun
Well all Chuck's children are out there playing his licks
Get into your kicks
Come back baby
Rock 'n Roll never forgets
Said you can come back baby
Rock 'n Roll never forgets

Rock And Roll

M smotherman
Well when i first got to memphis...
I was knocked out by those friendly people
They all said "howdy, howdy, come on in
We don't know the meaning of the word outsider"
I said "people, you gonna play this kinda music
Well there's something i would surely like to know
When i was a boy i heard this wild kinda music
And i think they called it, oh, rock and roll
Can you tell me what you know about rock and roll?"
They said "son, it's just a feeling, way down in your soul"
Just a simple story with this wild rock and roll
Yeah, well all the boys in louisiana called it rock and roll
But i'll tell you a secret, it drives the women crazy
And that's all you need to know about rock and roll
Well you could not imagine the shape my head was in
I took me a walk down by the mississippi
When i heard this rockin' out of the harbour inn
I couldn't resist, i had me a drink, then i had me a listen
I said "people, you gonna play this kinda music
There's something that i'd really like to know
When i was a boy i heard this wild kinda music
And i think they called it, rock and roll
Can you tell me what you know about rock and roll?"
They said "son, it's just a feeling, way down in your soul"
Just a simple story with this wild rock and roll
Yeah, well all the boys in louisiana called it rock and roll
But i'll tell you a secret, it drives the women crazy

Its Only Rock n Roll

(rodney crowell)
Well, its only rock and roll keep you running from yourself
When the only way to slow down is to fall
And its only rock and roll that caused you to leave home
When the only way to get back is to crawl
But the record people love you they can get you on the bill
Change your name to money dress up fit to kill
People all around you everywhere you go
Dont worry if they love you son its only rock and roll
Yes and its only rock and roll keep you jumping all the time
When you really ought to sit this one out
And its only rock and roll keep on messin with your mind when
You dont know what theyre talkin about
All around the world everywhere you go
People got to have it cause its only rock and roll
Its only rock and roll yes its only rock and roll
People all around you everywhere you go
Dont worry if they love you, cause its only rock and roll
Well its only rock and roll when your moneys in the mail
And your loves on the back of the bus
And its only rock and roll when your records start to sell
And you dont know why theyre making such a fuss
Telephone receiver ringin off the wall
Can I get witness each and every call
Second that emotion chased into your soul
Dont worry lest you linger, son its only rock and roll
Its only rock and roll yes its only rock and roll
People all around you everywhere you go
Dont worry if they love you, cause its only rock and roll
Its only rock and roll. yeah its only rock and roll
All around the world everywhere you go
People got to have it son its only rock and roll

Rock And Roll Band

1968, Van Morrison guitar & vocals
[false start]
We just sat there
[Rock & Roll Band]
We just sat there
never ever thinkin'
we'd get much older.
Layin' out on the beach
with our heads on each other's shoulder,
and we flagged the highway drivers down,
and get a ride to nowhere.
That means sit somewhere out of town,
we never ever had a care.
Wasn't that a time,
yeah, so wasn't that a soul time.
Wasn't that a time,
wasn't that a soul time.
And we stayed out all night long,
and never ever wanted to go home then.
Crossed the fields and streams,
in meadows we did roam then.
And we did not wanna question,
and never asked for why,
and we look back in sad remembrance
and we softly sigh.
And wasn't that a time,
yes, wasn't that a soul time.
Wasn't that a time,
yeah, wasn't that a soul time.
And we danced, we danced, we danced
to a Rock & Roll band.
And we danced, we danced, we danced, we danced
to a Rock & Roll band
with the three guitars
and the drums
and the saxophone.
And we just sat there on the beach
never ever thinkin' we'd get much older.
So far out of reach
with our heads on each other's shoulder.
Flagged the highway drivers down,
and we get a lift to nowhere,
somewhere out of town.
We never ever had a care.
Wasn't that a time,
yeah, wasn't that a soul time.
Wasn't that a time,
wasn't that a soul time,
when we danced, we danced, we danced
to a Rock and Roll band,
and we danced, we danced, we danced
to a Rock and Roll band
with the three guitars
and the drums
and the saxophone.

Rock And Roll Dreams Come Through

You can't run away forever
but there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start
You want to shut out the night, you want to shut down the sun
You want to shut away the pieces of a broken heart
Think of how we'd lay down together
We'd be listening to the radio so loud and so strong
Every golden nugget coming like a gift of the gods
Someone must have blessed us when he gave us those songs
I treasure your love
I never want to lose it
You've been through the fires of hell
And I know you've got the ashes to prove it
I treasure your love
I want to show you how to use it
You've been through a lot of pain in the dirt
And I know you've got the scars to prove it
Remember everything that I told you
and I'm telling you again that it's true
When you're alone and afraid, and you're completle amazed
To find there's nothing anybody can do
keep on believing, and you'll discover baby
Ref.: There's always something magic,
there's always something new
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through
The beat is yours forever
The beat is always new
And when you really really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through
For you
Once upon a time was a backbeat,
once upon a time all the chords came to life
And the angels had guitars even before thay had wings
If you hold onto a chorus you can get through the night
Remember everyghing that I told you
And I'm telling you again that it's true
You're never alone cause you can put on the phones
And let the drummer tell your heart what to do
Keep on believing, and you'll discover baby
Ref.
The beat is yours forever -
- that's when rock and roll dreams come through (5x

Rock And Roll Heart

I don't like opera and I don't like ballet
And new-waves French movies, they just drive me away
I guess I'm just dumb, 'cause I knows I ain't smart
But deep down inside, I got a rock and roll heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, deep down inside I got a rock and roll heart
Oh, rock and roll heart,
Looking for a good time
Just a rock and roll heart, rock and roll heart
Looking for a good time
I don't like massages or something meant to say
And I wish people like that would just go away
I guess I'm just dumb, 'cause I knows I not smart
But deep down inside, I got a rock and roll heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, deep down inside I got a rock and roll heart
Yeah, rock and roll heart, search for a good time
Just a rock and roll heart, roll heart, roll heart
Looking for a good time
Yeah, Just a rock and roll heart, roll heart, roll heart

Thats The Way I Wanna Rock N Roll

Party gonna happen at the union hall
Shaking to the rhythm til everybody fall
Picking up my woman in my chevrolet
Glory hallelujah gonna rock the night away
Im gonna roll roll roll
Im gonna roll roll roll
Im gonna take this town, turn it around
Im gonna roll roll roll
Now theres a blue suede bopping on a high heeled shoe
Balling round together like a wrecking crew
Oh be bopper lubba baby what I say
You gotta get a dose of rock and roll on each and every day
Were gonna roll roll roll
Were gonna roll roll roll
Were gonna take this town, turn it around
Were gonna roll roll roll

Prisoners Of Rock n Roll

People tell us that we play to loud
But they dont know what our musics about
We never listen to the record company man
They try to change us and ruin our band.
Thats why we dont wanna be good
Thats why we dont wanna be good
Were prisoners of rock and roll.
When were jammin in our old garage
The girls come over and it sure gets hot
We dont wanna be watered down
Takin orders from record company clowns.
Thats why we dont wanna be good
Thats why we dont wanna be good
Were prisoners of rock and roll.
Were prisoners of rock and roll.

Ive Got A Rock n Roll Heart

By troy seals, eddie setser and steve diamond
Ive got a feeling we could be serious, girl;
Right at this moment, I could promise you the world.
Before we go crazy, before we explode,
Theres something bout me, baby, you got to know, you got to know.
I get off on 57 chevys;
I get off on screaming guitar.
Like the way it hits me every time it hits me.
Ive got a rock and roll, Ive got a rock and roll heart.
Feels like were falling into the arms of the night,
So if youre not ready, dont be holdin me so tight.
I guess theres nothing left for me to explain;
Heres what youre gettin and I dont want to change, I dont want to change.
Chorus
I dont need to glitter, no hollywood,
All you got to do is lay it down and you lay it down good.

Dead, Jail, Or Rock 'n Roll

When I was a kid all I wanted to be
Was the meanest dude on the meanest machine
Now I'm going to wrong way on a one-way street
I never fit this society
I don't really mind
Doing my own time
The three choices I ever came to find
Were:Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
I ain't looking for trouble but it's looking for me
The law of the jungle is protecting me
Lose sleep man stay out of your bed
You might wind up in jail if you lose your head
In death I might find
True peace of mind
But while I'm alive
Free choice is mine
It's either:Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
I don't really mind
Doing my own time
The three choices I ever came to find
Were either:Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
Dead, Jail or Rock'n'Roll
