Rock and Roll

Album: That Could've Gone Better (2003)
Charted: 107
  • He's been waiting around for the weekend
    Figuring which club to sneak in
    Fancy drinks and fifty dollar cover charge
    Lately it's been a big hassle

    Heineken and new castle
    To make sure he's fitting in and living large
    Disregard the lies that he will tell and what he's probably like
    'Cause it's not hard his charm is gonna get him through the night

    If he wants to rock he rocks
    If he wants to roll he rolls
    He can roll with the punches long as he feels like he's in control
    If he wants to stay he stays
    If he wants to go he goes
    He doesn't care how he gets there long as he gets somewhere he knows

    See her heavy makeup and cut t-shirt
    Every girl out wants to be her
    But they look the same already why adjust
    Reading the magazine secrets
    Forgetting the topical regrets
    'Cause if she comes home all alone the night's a bust
    It's a must the swivel in her hips and the look she gives
    It's all her trust if only in the morning she knew where she lived

    If she wants to rock she rocks
    If she wants to roll she rolls
    She can roll with the punches long as she feels like she's in control
    If she wants to stay she stays
    If she wants to go she goes
    She doesn't care how she gets there long as she gets somewhere she knows

    And in a wink they're on the brink
    From drink to drink and at the bar with cash to blow
    Shot to shot it's getting hot
    Advance the plot to see how far it's gonna go

    All depends so ditch the friends and grab a cab
    Another chance at cheap romance
    Doesn't count 'cause the room is spinning
    Nothing to lose tonight they both are winning
    And they fall in love as they fall in bed

    If they want to rock they rocks
    If they want to roll they rolls
    They can roll with the punches long as they feels like they're in control
    If they want to stay they stay
    If they want to go they go
    They don't care how they get there long as they get somewhere they know
