  • Oh Rockin'
    Oh Yeah

    Cruising down the motorway
    Got my girl by my side
    We're both a little anxious
    Ooo, we got love on our mind
    Waiting, anticipating
    For the fireworks in the night
    Well I swear we were doing eighty
    When we saw those motel lights

    And we were rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night
    Ooo hoo, rockin'
    Rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night

    Out on the back street
    Taking love where I can
    I found a sweet madonna
    Ooo, with a bible in her hand
    She's waiting, anticipating
    Well, for someone to save her soul
    Well, I ain't no new messiah
    But I'm close enough for rock and roll

    And we were rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night
    Ooo hoo, rockin'
    Rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night

    And I'm slowin' down, and she's pullin' in

    Waiting, anticipating
    For the fireworks in the night
    Well, I swear we were doing eighty
    When we saw those motel lights

    We were Rockin',
    Rockin' into the night
    Ooo yeah
    Rockin', rockin' into the night
    Rockin', rockin' into the night
    Rockin', rockin' into the night

    Rockin' into the night, rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night, rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night, rockin' into the night
    Rockin' into the night, rockin' into the night

  • Dactar from Painsville, OhWow, I was just listening to a Survivor recording from last week and just realised that this was their song....
  • Pam from Taylor, Migreat song...poor video sound, but...one of my favorite groups of all time. Gotta love .38 Special
  • Sam from Lexington , KyYeah I agree, Mike from Hueyton, I was suprised to see only one comment. This is a great song, probabley 38 specials biggest hit except for "Hold on Loosely" of course. I'm actually kind of surprised that .38 special isnt a more popular southern rock band. They didn't have a bunch of number 1 hits or nothing, but had some pretty good songs that I think deserve a little more recognition, such as this one, "Wild Eyed Southern Boys", "Caught up in You", and several others.
  • Mike from Hueytown , AlGreat Song...can't believe there are no comments here
