Ow!
Ow, yeah
You know
Ow!
Ow, ow!

Well, they say it's kinda frightenin' how this younger generation swings
You know, it's more than just some new sensation
Well, the kid is into losin' sleep
And he don't come home for half the week
You know, it's more than just an aggravation

And the cradle will rock
Yes, the cradle, cradle will rock
And I say, rock on
Ooh, rock on

And when some local kid gets down, they try and drum him out of town
They say, you could've at least faked it boy, fake it boy
(You could at least fake it, boy)
At an early age he hits the street
Winds up tied with who he meets
And he's unemployed
(Unemployed)
Ow!

And the cradle will rock, ow!
And, the cradle, the cradle will rock
And I say, rock on
Oh I say rock on

Have you seen Junior's grades?
Ow!

And when some local kid gets down, they try and drum him out of town
They say, you could've at least faked it boy, faked it boy
And so at an early age he hits the street
Winds up tied with who he meets
And he's unemployed, his folks are overjoyed

And the cradle will rock
Yes, the cradle, cradle will rock
I say, rock on
Hey, rock on

Rock on
(Rock on)
Rock on
(Rock on,say never new brain child)
Ow!
Rock on
(Whoa)
(It's crazy)
Rock on
(I say, rock on)
(Rock on)
Rock on
(On, on)
Rock on
(On, on, on)
Rock on
(On, on, on)
Rock on
Rock on
