  • Little sister by the record machine
    A tiny dancer such a sweet sixteen
    She's goin' out, she's gonna party tonight
    She's gonna shake and make it last all night

    Little brother's got a drivin' machine
    A fast driver such a clean machine
    They're goin' out they're gonna put out the lights
    They gonna rock it, rock it, rock it

    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah, it's alright
    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah all night
    You can still rock in America

    Little sister makes a move for the door
    The door squeaks, she's on the second floor
    Her daddy wakes, "is everything okay?"
    Not a sound as she makes her getaway

    Little brother's got it ready to roll
    Tires burnin' as they head for the show
    Light it up and turn the music up loud
    And rock it, rock it, rock it

    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah, it's alright
    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah all night
    You can still rock in America

    Rock in America
    (You can still)
    Rock in America
    (Rock in America)
    Rock in America
    (Yeah, you can still)
    Rock in America

    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah, it's alright
    You can still rock in America
    Ah yeah all night
    You can still rock in America
    You can still rock in America
    Well you can still rock in America Writer/s: BRADLEY GILLIS, JACK BLADES

  • Chris from ColoradoI have always felt Night Ranger was a little underrated - these guys kicked ass! Great songwriting and performing, amazing energy and musicianship. Just check out some of their live performance videos on YouTube, always gets me dancing.
  • Bill from Clinton, Il.I saw Night Ranger at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield Illinois back in 2013 and Jack Blades confirmed the above story. They can still rock period! It was one of the best shows I've seen in over a decade.
