I wrote the president, but I got no reply
He claims he tells the truth, he writes it in the sky
The taxman's at the door, though he never seems polite
They've got me cornered, cornered in the light, we could change that overnight
So goodnight to all the world, sleep tight all you boys and girls
I spent some time at school, livin' by the rules
They didn't like me much, hypocrites and fools
Old men teach young men to surrender to the law
The straight and narrow path leads to the same old door
Gonne kick it in like before
Chorus:
So goodnight to all the world, sleep tight all you boys and girls
Heaven walks hand in hand with hell, rock 'n roll is alive and well
Too many heroes looking down upon their feet
It's time to raise the roof and shout it in the street
It's time to take command, it's time to make a stand - yeah
Don't need a uniform to know which side I'm on
Don't need a set of rules to know what's right or wrong
I've been an outcast in your eyes and to the law
The right hand takes away, the left hand asks for more
But we all know the score
(chorus repeats 2x)
Goodnight (repeats out)
Gonna have some fun tonight, everything's alright
