  • Don't try to talk to your mother
    She won't understand
    She says you're crazy, boy you're runnig wild
    Don't try to talk to your father
    He won't give a damn
    Saying you're lazy and a problem child

    You've got to be strong
    If you will survive, stay alive

    Well they can kick they can beat
    Knock us down to the ground
    But we will rise and we will march again
    Cause we are the heat, we are the sound
    Of rolling thunder in the yeah

    And so we are here
    And we won't give up, we won't stop

    Red hot and heavy - the way it's gonna be
    Red hot and heavy - now don't you see
    Red hot and heavy - we're bringin' you down
    So touch the ground

    You know the big revolution
    It's gonna be so
    Out in the streets we're gonna shout it out
    You know the final solution
    It's rock'n roll
    That's what we need and we will keep it loud

    And so we are here
    For a night on town
    Rock this city down
