They Played Rock And Roll

Album: Thunderbolt (2018)
  • When the bomber flew
    It was '79
    Make no mistake
    It was their time

    Living fast and free
    The only way to be
    The world was on the street
    They were the boys to beat

    And they played rock and roll
    They played rock and roll

    They took no sleep
    The tour rolled on
    To Hammersmith
    Their battle song

    Everything over the top
    Giving it all till you drop
    Adrenaline, leather and sweat
    No one would ever forget

    They played rock and roll
    They played rock and roll

    Dealing the ace
    Releasing the power
    The '80s were here
    This was the hour

    Decibels crushing your brain
    The closer you get to the pain
    Night after night on the road
    Falling asleep with the sun

    [Lemmy]
    We are Motörhead
    And we play rock and roll!
    [/Lemmy]

    Bass like thunder
    Drums of steel
    Guitars of fury
    With lightning fear

    Living fast and free
    The only way to be
    The world was on the street
    They were the boys to beat

    And they played rock and roll
    They played rock and roll
    They played rock and roll
    They played rock and roll
