Rock N Roll Lyrics

by Mos Def

Well, it's been a long time since I rocked and rolled
Been a long time since I did the stroll
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from

It's been a long time, baby, a long time
A lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

It's been a long time since the book of love
Can't count the tears of a life with no love
Carry me back, carry me back
Carry me back to Louisiana

It's been a long time, baby, been a long time
A lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, woo, baby

Well, it seems so long since I walked in the moonlight
Making vows that just can't work right
Open up your arms, opens up your arms
Open up your arms, baby, let my love come in

It's been a long time, baby
A lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time, woo

Rock and roll!

Well, it's been a long time since I rocked and rolled
Been a long time since I did the stroll
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from

Been a long time, a long time
A lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Whoa it's been a long time baby
Since I had some of your dad-gum good Louisiana lovin'
You remember me, don't cha?
