Mr. Rock n Roll

Album: Rebel Soul (2012)
  • He got a song to sing he got an axe to grind
    He far and wide but still hard to find
    He go wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom

    He sang Long Tall Sally and Sweet Sixteen
    Good Golly Miss Molly and Maybellene
    He sent the whole world Walking to New Orleans

    Mr. Hiatus won’t ya save us from your radio
    Cuz these hip hop pop punk rock kids got no soul
    Either way we’re proud to welcome back the star of the show
    So put your hands together for Mr. Rock n Roll

    He sang Jailhouse Rock and Peggy Sue
    Rock Around the Clock and Blue Suede Shoes
    And still there ain’t no cure for the Summertime Blues

    He took the Mississippi Queen to Katmandu
    A Stairway to Heaven and yelled Hey Jude
    So tell me Proud Mary now Who Do You Love?

    Mr. Hiatus won’t ya save us from your radio
    'Cause these hip hop pop punk rock kids got no soul
    Either way we’re proud to welcome back the star of the show
    So put your hands together for Mr. Rock n Roll

    Save me
    Love me till the day I die take me to the mountain high
    Baby
    Guide me through the great divide and lay me by the ocean side
    So put your hands together for Mr. Rock n Roll

    He said Hey Good Lookin’, What’s Going On
    A whole lotta shakin’ and a simple song
    And still there Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

    He said Walk This Way Up Around the Bend
    'Cause up there we Won’t Get Fooled Again
    And yes, he gets high with a little help from his friends

    Mr. Hiatus won’t ya save us from your radio
    Because these hip hop pop punk rock kids got no soul
    Either way we’re proud to welcome back the star of the show
    So put your hands together for Mr. Rock n Roll Writer/s: MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE, MATTHEW SHAFER
