Lyrics
1. IT'S A LONG WAY TO THE TOP (IF YOU WANNA ROCK 'N' ROLL)

Ridin' down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stop in all the by-ways
Playin' rock 'n' roll
Gettin' robbed
ettin' stoned
Gettin' beat up
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks.

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you think it's easy doin' one night stands
Try playin' in a rock roll band
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll.

Hotel, motel
Make you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Gettin' old
Gettin' grey
Gettin' ripped off
Under-paid
Gettin' sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playin' in a band.

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll.


2. ROCK 'N' ROLL SINGER

My daddy was workin' nine to five
When my momma was havin' me
By the time i was half alive
They knew what i was gonna be
I left school and grew my hair
They didn't understand
They wanted me to be respected as
A doctor or a lawyer man
(But i had other plans).

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star.

Well i worked real hard and bought myself
A rock 'n' roll guitar
I gotta be on top some day
I wanna be a star
I can see my name in lights
And i can see the queue
I got the devil in my blood
Tellin' me what to do
(And i'm all ears).

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
(I hear it pays well).

Well you can stick your nine to five livin'
And your collar and your tie
And stick your moral standards
'Cause it's all a dirty lie
You can stick your golden handshake
And you can stick your silly rules
And all the other shit
That they teach to kids in school
('Cause i ain't no fool).

Gonna be a rock 'n' roll singer
Gonna be a rock 'n' roll star.


3. THE JACK

She gave me the queen
She gave me the king
She was wheelin' and dealin'
Just doin' her thing
She was holdin' a pair
But i had to try
Her deuce was wild
But my ace was high
But how was i to know
That she'd been dealt with before
Said she'd never had a full house
But i should have known.

From the tattoo on her left leg
And the garter on her right
She'd have the card to bring me down
If she played it right.

She's got the Jack

Poker face was her name
Poker face was her nature
Poker straight was her game
If she knew she could get you
She play'd 'em fast
And she play'd 'em hard
She could close her eyes
And feel every card
But how was i to know
That she'd been shuffled before
Said she'd never had a royal flush
But i should have known
That all the cards were comin'
From the bottom of the pack
And if i'd known what she was dealin' out
I'd have dealt it back.

She's got the Jack.


4. LIVE WIRE

Well if you're lookin' for trouble
I'm the man to see
If you're lookin' for satisfaction
I'm satisfaction guaranteed
I'm as cool as a body on ice
Or hotter than a rollin' dice
Send you to heaven
Take you to hell
Pain't foolin'
Can't you tell

I'm a live wire

Gonna set this town on fire
Well if you need some lovin'
And if you need some man
You've got the phone and the number
And i got no future plans
Oh come on honey you got nothin' to lose
You got the thirst 'n i got the booze
Give you an inch
Take you a mile
I wanna make you smile.

I'm a live wire.

Holy smoke and sweet desire
Like a hot rod baby?
Oh stick this in your fuse box.

Cooler than a body on ice
Hotter than a rollin' dice
Wilder than a drunken fight
You're gonna burn tonight.

I'm a live wire.
And i'm gonna set this town on fire.


5. T.N.T.

Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi
See me ride out of the sunset
On your colour tv screen
Out for all that i can get
If you know what i mean
Women to the left of me
And women to the right
Ain't got no gun
Ain't got no knife
But don't you start no fight.

'Cause i'm t.n.t. i'm dynamite
T.n.t. and i'll win the fight
T.n.t. i'm a power load
T.n.t. watch me explode.

I'm dirty, mean and mighty unclean
I'm a wanted man
Public enemy number one
Understand
So lock up your daughter
Lock up your wife
Lock up your back door
And run for your life
The man is back in town
Don't you mess me 'round.

T.N.t. oi, oi, oi
T.N.t. oi, oi, oi
T.N.t. oi, oi, oi
T.N.t. oi, oi, oi
T.N.t. oi
I'm dynamite (oi, oi)
T.n.t. Oi,
And i'll win the fight,
T.n.t.
I'm a power load
T.n.t.
Watch me explode.


6. ROCKER

I'm a rocker
I'm a roller
I'm a right out of controller
I'm a wheeler
I'm a dealer
I'm a wicked woman stealer
I'm a bruiser
I'm a cruiser
I'm a rockin' rollin' man.

Got slicked back hair
Skin tight jeans
Cadillac car
And a teenage dream.

I'm a rocker
I'm a roller
A rockin' rollin' man.

Got lorex socks
Blue suede shoes
V8 car
And tattoos.

I'm a rocker
I'm a roller
A rockin' rollin' man.


7. CAN I SIT NEXT TO YOU GIRL

I met this girl for the first time on saturday night
Standing in the queue at the odeon alright
Oh i took her by surprise
When i gave her one of my lines
She started smiling at me real fine (ha ha)
That's when i said.

Can i sit next to you, girl.

At intermission we were doing alright
Until this guy came up and stood by her side
Oh i took him by surprise
When i gave him one of my lines
She started smiling at me real fine
nd that's when i said.

Can i sit next to you, girl.


8. HIGH VOLTAGE

You ask me 'bout the clothes i wear
And you ask me why i grow my hair
And you ask me why i'm in a band
I dig doin' one night stands
You wanna see me do my thing
All you gotta do is plug me into high.

I said high
High voltage rock 'n' roll.

You ask me why i like to dance
And you ask me why i like to sing
And you ask me why i like to play
I got to get my kicks some way
You ask me what I'm all about
Come and let me hear you shout high.

I said high
High voltage rock 'n' roll.


9. SCHOOL DAYS

Up in the morning and out to school
The teacher is teaching the golden rule
American history and practical maths
Study 'em hard and hoping to pass
Working your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone.

Ring ring goes the bell
The cook in the lunch room is ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom open your books
Gee but the teacher don't know how mean she looks.

Hail hail rock 'n' roll.

Soon as three o'clock rolls aroun'
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books and get out of your seat
Down the hall and into the street
Up to the corner and 'round the bend
Right to the juke joint you go in.

Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear something that's really hot
With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you've been wanting to dance
Feeling the music from head to toe
Round and round and round you go

Long live rock 'n' roll
