Rock 'N' Roll Tonight Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I drove into that parking lot
For the first time peepers round was on the dot
By the stink of that cop, ain't got a lot
Well we were lookin' for a place to play

We high-tailed over to one-eyed Jack
With a cheap guitar strung over my back
Well I looked pretty nervous, I cant turn back
This guy was everything the driver said, yeah

Well we were all right
We're gonna rock and roll tonight
Hey knock, don't lean on the record machine
Or mess around with the big red light

Well, it was all right
We gotta rock and roll tonight
And Bun E's on the ground
Goin' round and round
'Cause his baby's cut her jeans too tight

Well lazy Jack, doesn't move too well
Play it back real loud, a real rebel yell
Buy a rock and roll record and make it sell
Im gonna make it to the top today

Now I got pulled in some big demand
And they all keep telling me be a one-man band
Unless I get big stuff and a real cool band
And boy you gotta hear me play, yeah

Well, we were all right
We're gonna rock and roll tonight
Hey knock, don't lean on the record machine
Or mess around with the big red light

Well, it was all right
We gotta rock and roll tonight
And Bun E's on the ground
Goin' round and round
'Cause his baby's cut her jeans too tight

Well they heard some sounds in the songs we wrote
Welcome back by paying you note for note
Been a long time playin' that rock and roll
Not a thing's gonna touch me now

Gonna rock your town if anybody could
Drive a big limousine down to Hollywood
Even bought a nice home in your neighborhood
But we have to keep the curtains drawn, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well, we were all right
We're gonna rock and roll tonight
Hey knock, don't lean on the record machine
Or mess around with the big red light

Well, it was all right
We gotta rock and roll tonight
And Bun E's on the ground
Goin' round and round
'Cause his baby's got her jeans too tight

We were all right
We're gonna rock and roll tonight, rock and roll tonight
And Bun E's on the ground
Goin' round and round
'Cause his baby's cut her jeans too tight
