lyrics

Well Don't ever let 'em tell you that your Rock 'n' Roll is Dead
I Said don't ever let 'em tell you that your Rock 'n' Roll is Dead
If you believe that jive, son, you better check your head

My baby like to rock
My baby like to roll
My baby like the feeling when she lose control

Well Don't ever let 'em tell you that a song won't set you free
Oh No, don't you ever let 'em tell you that a song won't set you free
If you go spreadin' that nonsense around, you gonna answer to me

I said my baby like to shuck
My baby like to jive
My baby stay out dancin' 'til it's half past five
Come on, do the twist with me honey...

Well, don't ever let 'em tell you that you gotta work a nine-to-five
No, no, don't ever let 'em tell you that you gotta work a nine-to-five
You'll work your fingers to the bone, 'til you're more dead than alive

Well my baby likes to hoot
My baby likes to holler
My baby likes to drink 'til she's spent my last dollar
Go ahead, spend my money baby, you know I'm good for it...

I got the twelve bar blues and it's driving me around the bend
Oh yes, I got the twelve bar blues and it's driving me around the bend
'Cause there's twelve bars in my town, and I ain't got a dime to spend

about

Painless Parker Brooklyn, New York

Born under a barstool and raised by a pack of wild koalas, Painless Parker plays a mixed bag of country laments, sea shanties, murder ballads and classic rockers, filtered through a grimy, whiskey-stained punk lens. He's fluent in two languages, and can cuss in at least seventeen. He enjoys rabble-rousing, shindigging, booze drinking and merrymaking. ... more
