Just Wanna Rock 'N Roll

Album: Take a Back Road (2011)
  • Times are tough and times are strange
    But time's one thing that you can't change
    Love is a noun and love is a verb
    But sometimes love is a dirty word

    It don't matter what tomorrow brings
    Tonight you just need to think about one thing
    And that's showing up and letting go
    And maybe gettin' just a little out of control

    And sing oh
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Gather up a couple of friends
    Let a shot hit the spot
    And the party begin
    And sing oh yeah
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Lose yourself out in the crowd
    In the night, in the lights cuttin' loose some love
    Drown all the stressed up theft up messed up out
    That's what I'm talking about

    The sun will shine and the clouds will rain
    Might have to learn to smile through the pain
    You lose a step but you gain a friend
    Might even catch a break every now and then
    So don't sweat it just let it slide
    And when you get on the road baby let it ride
    You gotta get up to get down
    You gotta unwind a little to come on 'round

    And sing oh yeah
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Gather up a couple of friends
    Let a shot hit the spot and the party begin
    Oh yeah don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Lose yourself out in the crowd
    In the night, in the lights cuttin' loose some love
    Drown all the messed up theft up stressed up out
    That's what I'm talking about

    And when you get tired of trying to be
    Who they want you to be
    Be what you wanna be
    Well come on, come on

    Oh, oh yeah
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Gather up a couple of friends
    Let a shot hit the spot let the party begin
    Oh, oh don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Lose yourself out in the crowd
    In the night, in the lights cuttin' loose some love
    Drown all the stressed up messed up theft up out
    That's what I'm talking about

    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll
    Gather up a couple of friends
    Let the party begin
    Lose yourself out in the crowd
    Don't you just wanna rock 'n' roll Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
