Rock'n Roll Is Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I wrote to the President
But I got no reply
He claims, he tells the truth
He writes it in the sky

The tax man'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
Gonna kick it in, like before

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 dead 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

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, is alive and well

So, goodnight to all the world
Sleep tight, all the boys and girls
Heaven walks hand in hand with hell
Rock 'n roll is alive, is alive and well

Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

Gonna have some fun tonight
Every thing's all right
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, sleep tight
