It's not high finance
It's called heart and soul
If it's rock and roll
Got to go, go, go, go, go

Gon' keep moving on up
To the higher ground
Gon' keep on moving on up
I got to stand my ground
Gon' keep on moving on up
I wanna stick around

Won't let the bastards grind me down
Won't let the bastards grind me down
Won't let the bastards grind me down

Call me Raincheck
In the afternoon
Call me Raincheck
Need a shot of rhythm and blues

Call me Raincheck
On a golden, autumn day
Call me Raincheck
I won't fade away

I won't fade away
I don't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I want to

Can't take my love away
Ah, 'cause it's here to stay
If it fades away
Come back another day

Gon' keep on moving on up
To the higher ground
Gon' keep on moving on up
I wanna stick around
Gon' keep on moving on up
Oh, gonna stand my ground

Won't let the bastards grind me down
Won't let the bastards grind me down
Won't let the bastards grind me down

My name is Raincheck
In the afternoon
My name is Raincheck
Need a shot of rhythm and blues

My name is Raincheck
On a golden, autumn day
My name is Raincheck
And I don't fade away

I don't fade away
I don't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I want to

Move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up

Grind me down
Grind me down
Grind me down

My name is Raincheck
In the afternoon
My name is Raincheck
Need a shot of rhythm and blues

My name is Raincheck
On a golden, autumn day
My name is Raincheck
And I don't fade away

I don't fade away
I don't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I want to

Put on your dancing shoes
Dance away your blues
When I'm feeling like this
I got nothing to lose

Wan' keep on moving on up
To the higher ground
Wan' keep on moving on up
And I'll stick around
Wan' keep on moving on up
Got to stand my ground

Won't let the bastards grind me down
Won't let the bastards grind me down
Oh, won't let the bastards grind me down

My name is Raincheck
In the afternoon
My name is Raincheck
Need a shot of rhythm and blues

My name is Raincheck
On a golden, autumn day
My name is Raincheck
And I don't fade away

I don't fade away
I don't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose

No, I don't fade away
I don't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I choose
I choose, I choose

I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose

No, I won't fade away
I won't fade away
I don't fade away
Unless I want to
