The Rock Stops Here

(eric carmen/fred carmen)
(recorded by eric carmen)
Cool 101 / 1986
A dj in cleveland brought some bands to town
When the music got started
They tore the house down
People said everybody just went out of control
Alan freed grabbed a mike and called it rock and roll
They started bandstand in philly back in 55
And elvis rock-a-billy brought memphis alive
L.a. gave us surfers and detroits got soul
But theres only one home of rock and roll
And kids a hundred thousand strong
Burned the phone lines all night long
To send a message loud and clear
In the u.s.a., I said, the rock stops here
The rock stops here
Little richard brought miss molly
The rock stops here
Peggy sues with buddy holly
The rock stops here
Everybodys gettin down
The rock stops here
Oww! here comes the great james brown
The rock stops here
Chuck berrys with maybelline
The rock stops here
Jerry lees pianos screamin
The rock stops here
Elvis singin blue suede shoes
I need a shot of rock-a-billy
With my rhythm and blues
They looked from new york to l.a. to find the spot
Every city in the nation took their very best shot
When the dust all settled, one city stood tall
And they knew who deserved the rock and roll hall
So to prove the facts they already knew
They took a nationwide poll
That made the front page news
When the votes were counted, the results all showed
In cleveland, we eat, sleep and drink rock and roll
Kids a hundred thousand strong
Shouted, put the hall where it belongs
Now heres the message loud and clear
In the u.s.a., you know the rock stops here
I said the rock stops here
Cathys clowns with don and phil
The rock stops here
Fats is up on blueberry hill
The rock stops here
Ray charles shoutin whatd I say
The rock stops here
And sam cooke is twistin the night away
The rock stops here
Elvis doin jailhouse rock
The rock stops here
Chuck berry doin the duck walk
The rock stops here
Little richards singin woooo
I said, wop-bomp-a-loo-bop ba-lomp-bam-boom
Kids a hundred thousand strong
Shouted, put the hall where it belongs
Heres the message loud and clear
In the u.s.a., I said the rock stops here
The rock stops here
Little richard brought miss molly
The rock stops here
Peggy sues with buddy holly
The rock stops here
Everybodys gettin down
The rock stops here
Oww! here comes the great james brown
The rock stops here
Chuck berrys with maybelline
The rock stops here
Jerry lees pianos screamin
The rock stops here
Elvis singin blue suede shoes
I need a shot of rock-a-billy
With my rhythm and blues
I said the rock stops here
Cathys clowns with don and phil
The rock stops here
Fats is up on blueberry hill
The rock stops here
Ray charles shoutin whatd I say
The rock stops here
And sam cooke is twistin the night away
The rock stops here
Elvis doin jailhouse rock
The rock stops here
Chuck berry doin the duck walk
The rock stops here
Little richards singin woooo
I said, wop-bomp-a-loo-bop ba-lomp-bam-boom
I said the rock stops here
Gonna shout it to the nation
The rock stops here
At every radio station
The rock stops here
Say it loud and clear
cause in the u.s.a., you know the rock stops here

Now, I don't know how they judge all that, but if anybody in the world deserves to be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Ritchie Valens does.

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

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!

Anything Thats Rock N Roll

Some friends of mine and me stayed up all through the night
Rockin pretty steady til l the sky went light
And I didnt go to bed, didnt go to work
I picked up the telephone, told the boss he was a jerk
Your mama dont like it when you run around with me
But we gotta hip your mama that you gotta live free
Dont need her, dont need school
You dont like your daddy, and you dont like rules
So come baby, lets go, dont you hear the rock n roll
Playin on the radio sounds so right
Girl you better grab hold, everybodys gotta know
Anything that s rock n roll fine
Oh, oh, oh, hold me little baby
Im a little bit shakin and a little bit crazy
But I know what I want, I want it right now
While the electric guitar is playin way up loud
So come baby lets go dont you hear the rock n roll
Playin on the radio sounds so right
Girl you better grab hold, everybodys gotta know
Anything thats rock n roll fine
Fine, fine , its so fine

God Gave Rock n Roll To You Ii

God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone
Do you know what you want? you dont know for sure
You dont feel right, you cant find a cure
And youre gettin less than what youre lookin for
You dont have money or a fancy car
And youre tired of wishin on a falling star
You gotta put your faith in a loud guitar
Chorus:
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone (oh yeah)
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone
Now listen
If you wanna be a singer, or play guitar
Man, you gotta sweat or you wont get far
Cause its never too late to work nine-to-five
You can take a stand, or you can compromise
You can work real hard or just fantasize
But you dont start livin till you realize - I gotta tell ya!
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Gave rock and roll to everyone
God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul
(instrumental break)
God gave rock and roll to you (to everyone he gave the song to be sung)
Gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to everyone
God gave rock and roll to you (to everyone he gave the song to be sung)
Gave rock and roll to you, saved rock and roll for everyone
Saved rock and roll
Chorus repeats out...
I know life sometimes can get tough! and I know life sometimes can be a drag!
But people, we have been given a gift, we have been given a road
And that roads name is... rock and roll!

Rocky

Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
Hes got the talent to take him far
Started out playing hotel bars
Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
Spent his time just looking for kicks
Whipping out them tricks to pull the chicks
Just have a chance every way he rips
Come on rocky take me into the night
The neon streets are shining bright
To all them queens you bring the light
That cocky rocky
His belt is so tight
Hits the stage, the show begins
Dressed in black to make him thin
The speed they flash and when he grins
Sail away rocky and nobody sings (? )
Come on rocky and throw the dice
You threw it once, now throw it twice
Heavy boys, they want a slice
They paid their money, they want a choice
Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
Hes got the talent to take him far
And all he needs is that old guitar
Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star

Rock n Roll Is King

Listen everybody let me tell you bout the rock n roll
Feel that rhythm and its really gonna thrill your soul
She said come along with me, to a land of make believe
She said rock n roll is king
She loves that rock n roll and she plays it all night long
Thats all she ever tells me when I call her on the telephone
She says feel that jumpin beat, and git up on your feet
She says rock n roll is king
Chorus: oh let those guitars play
Play for me play for me
Oh let that song ring out
Thats how its meant to be
It rolls like a train thats comin on down the track
She rolled over beethoven and she gave tchaikovsky back
She loves that drivin beat, she goes dancin on down the street
She said rock n roll is king
Chorus
When she comes around and Im listenin to the radio
She says you cant do that cause all I wanna do is rock n roll
Now here Im gonna stay where that music starts to play
She says rock n roll is king

Rock 'N' Roll Band (1st Version)

Sitting in the darkest corner
in the candle-light I saw her face
she was looking so sad and lonely
someone help me, someone save me
I could see the look she gave me, oh
oh yeah, and there was one thing only
that I knew I could do
Let's go girl
it's a beautiful place this world
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band
let's go now
let me show you that I know how
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band
You've been sitting there for hours
tryin' to hide behind the flowers now
baby, we could have fun together
come on, cheer up let's get started
no use being broken-hearted now
oh yeah, you're gonna feel much better
yes I know that you will
Let's go girl
it's a beautiful place this world
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band
let's go now
let me show you that I know how
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band
come on baby let's dance
to the rock'n roll band

Rock n Roll

Jenny said, when she was just five years old
You know theres nothin happening at all
Every time she put on the radio
There was nothin goin down at all
Not at all
One fine mornin, she puts on a new york station
And she couldnt believe what she heard at all
She started dancin to that fine-fine-fine-fine music
Ooohhh, her life was saved by rock n roll
Hey baby, rock n roll
Despite all the amputation
You could dance to a rock n roll station
And it was all right
It was all right
Hey babe
Jenny said, when she was just five years old
You know theres nothin happening at all
Two tv sets, two cadillac cars
Ahhh, hey, aint help me nothin at all
Not at all
One fine morning, she heard on a new york station
She couldnt believe what she heard at all
Not at all
Despite the amputation
You could dance to a rock n roll station
It was all right
It was all right
Oh, now here she comes now-now
Jenny said, when she was just five years old
You know theres nothin happening at all
Yeah, every time she put on the radio
There was nothin goin down at all
Not at all
Then one fine morning, she put on a new york station
And she couldnt believe what she heard at all
She started dancing to that fine-fine music
Ahh, her life was saved by rock n roll
Rock n roll
Despite all the amputation
You could dance to the rock n roll station
Its all right, all right
All right, all right
All right, its all right
All right, all right
Baby, baby
Baby, baby, ooohhh

Bring Back The Good Old Rock ‘n’ Roll

Bring back the good old RocknRoll
we used to dance to.
Bring back the good old RocknRoll
that we used to know.
Bring back the good old tunes and artist too.
Bring back the giants on to the field
Elvis; Haley, Ricky Nelson and Buddy Holly just to name a few.

Let us hear again Duane Eddy and his twangy guitar,
Connie Francis asking Where The Boys Are.
Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry warbling But I Do
and Cliff Richards mobbed by girls saying I Love You.

That is just to mention a few.
I remember the fifties and sixties
and the fun we had at the local dance halls
and jukeboxes blaring loud.

Johnny Cymbal with Mr Bass Man,
Danny and the Juniors At The Hop.
Larry Williams with Bonie Maronie
and the Monotones opening The Book Of Love
or standing in the rain to see the latest Presley film.

The Cascades playing in the Rhythm Of The Rain,
Dion and The Belmonts confessing
about being A Teenager In Love.
Johnny Tillotson singing Poetry In Motion
and Little Eva riding The Locomotion.
Oh the good old days when we were young.

Revised and rewritten
13 September 2009

Author’s Note.
The original had no date and was only partially finished. So for all us ‘oldies’ to reminisce a while, I finished it.

And I am
Satisfied with

O God, the rock of my whole strength

O God, the rock of my whole strength,
Let thy sweet mercy soothe mine anguish;
And grant me help, O Lord, at length,
Lest that I faint, despair, and languish.
