Rock And Roll (original Version) Lyrics

by Velvet Underground

Jenny said when she was just five years old
There was nothin' happenin' at all
Everytime she puts on the radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all, not at all

Then one fine mornin', she puts on a New York station
You know she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started singin' to that fine, fine music
You know her life was saved by Rock 'n' Roll

Despite all the amputations
You know you could just go out
And dance to the Rock 'n' Roll station
And it was alright, and that you know it was alright

Jenny said when she was just about five years old
You know my parents are gonna be the death of us all
Two TV sets and two Cadillac cars
But you know, ain't gonna help me at all, not just you [Incomprehensible]

Then one fine mornin', she turns on a New York station
She doesn't believe what she hears at all
Ooh, she started dancin' to that fine, fine music
You know her life was saved by Rock 'n' Roll, yea that fool

Despite all the computations
You could just dance her to that Rock 'n' Roll station
And baby it feels alright
Hey it was alright, hey he's gone now

That Jenny said when she was just 'bout five years old
Hey no, there's nothin' happenin' at all, not at all
Everytime I put on the radio
You know there's nothin' goin' down at all, not at all

One fine mornin' she hears the New York station
She couldn't believe what she heard at all, hey not at all
She started dancin' to that fine, fine music
You know her life was saved by rock 'n' roll, yes rock 'n' roll

Ooh , despite all the computations
You know you could just dance her to a rock 'n' roll station
Alright, alright, and it was alright
Well this mean that it was alright

It is alright now
It is alright now
It is alright now
