You don't need the papers to read between the lines
And you don't need the grapevine to say what's on your mind
Hangin' on the corner in the opera of the street
Eyes of imitation on everyone you meet
Dance to the music--sing to my song
Come to the party--and bring your friends along, listen

Roll over...get down
Gonna make you...right now
So heavy...so nice
We'll put your...nerves on ice

I been to the banker and I been to see the queen
Six of seven wonders have I made out of my dreams
I could be a junkie--i could be like you
We could be together...then what would we do
Life for the takin' is just outside your door
Time is the one thing that no one can afford
Listen...
Roll over...right now
Gonna make you...get down
So heavy...s'all right
We'll put your nerves on ice

Don't let them bring you down
Don't let them turn you upside down
Only the strong survive...
And no one here gets out alive

Call for the doctor--you can call out for a priest
But you can't take it with you when they're taggin' your disease
There're no easy lessons--and there're no guarantees
But you can go the distance be what you want to be
Stand where you're able...leave with your pride
Come to the table and throw down for your side, listen

Roll over...get down
You're gonna like it...and how
So heavy...so right
We'll put your nerves on ice

Don't let them bring you down
Don't let them turn you upside down
...don't think twice
...nerves on ice
Don't let them bring you down
Don't let them leave you on the edge of town
...don't think twice
...nerves on ice
