Rock Is Dead

Hi you lady alright babe gonna love ya

When I was just a little boy, bout the age of five

I went to sleep,

I heard my mama and papa talking -

She said

Hes goin wild, we gotta stop that child.

And I lay there listening, feeling bad -

You know, people, I was feeling bad.

Mama didnt like the way I did my thing.

The old lady, she didnt get with that thing.

But my daddy was a sailor, get his head around,

And he said

You gotta love love love love love my baby tonight.
