  • All this energy callin' me
    Back where it comes from
    It's such a crude attitude
    It's back where it belongs

    All the little kids goin' up on the skits go
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Jumpin' Jane Jean, and moonin' James Dean go
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!

    Momma knows, but she don't care,she's got her worries too
    Seven kids, and a phony affair, and the rent is due

    All the little chicks with the crimson lips go
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Livin' in sin with a safety pin goin'
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!

    I got some records from World War II
    I play 'em just like me grand dad do

    He was a rocker, and I am too
    Now Cleveland rocks, Now Cleveland rocks
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks! Cleveland rocks!
    Cleveland rocks!
