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
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
