Ray's rock house, that's my joint
House of soul, git my point
We don't care what's your dues
Come in here, lose yo' blues

When trouble comes a-knockin'
Everything looks better while yo' rockin'
You don't notice trouble while yo' rockin'

Rock
Let's rock! That's what we're offerin' you
Let's rock! That's what we wanted to do
Let's rock! Rock all yo troubles away
Let's rock! Rock till the dawnin' of day
Let's rock! Rock house is ready to roll
Let's rock! Rock house is good fo the soul

Every Saturday night there's a scene
That's a part of the fun
Mrs. Tucker will enter the joint
In a search for her son

Every Saturday night he sneaks out
Leavin' her in the lurch
But she's lookin' to bring him on home
'Cause tomorrow is church

She really hates the rock house
She's sure the Devil is in control here
Nothin' but rock 'n' roll here

Lady who got a lotta rockin' to do
Swing, whatta yo waitin' for
We got plenty of soul for you

Everybody gotta loosen your hip
Do a few rolls, wait till yo' feel yo' back slip
Then yo rockin', rock!

Rock
Let's rock! That's what we're offerin' you
Let's rock! That's what we wanted to do
Let's rock! Rock all yo troubles away
Let's rock! Rock till the dawnin' of day
Let's rock! Rock house is ready to roll
Let's rock! Rock house is good fo the soul

Sisters of the flock house
Ain't got no business comin' to the rock house
All the people in here are all in to sin in here
Of this there's no doubt
That's why Miz' Tucker is pullin' Sam out

Rock
Let's rock! That's what we're offerin' you
Let's rock! That's what we wanted to do
Let's rock! Rock all yo troubles away
Let's rock! Rock till the dawnin' of day
Let's rock! Rock house is ready to roll
Let's rock! Rock house is good fo my soul

So good
Every day I go to rock
Every day

I feel good
Every day I go to rock
Every day

You know I go to rock
I go to roll, I go to rock
I go to rock, I go to roll
I go to rock, I go to roll

Every day I go to rock
