lyrics

My brother asked me
Why I wanted the fame
I said I’d settle for the money
And critical acclaim
But now it’s none of the above
And I also lost my love

My mother asked me
If I’d ever settle down
She said “Don’t you think it’s time?”
“You know every girl around.”

But I’m still winding up
For the big come-down
No need to interrupt
I’ll stop myself now
It’s the blood I lose
That lifts me into the underground
So don’t you make a sound

My father asked me
If I’m ever coming home
I said, sorry Daddy Dearest
You’re the last to get to know

That I’m never going back
And I’m never growing old
‘Cause I’m going out West
Where they’re giving out gold
Just another drunken mess
Smoking dope selling rock and roll
So don’t you tell a soul

Rock and roll, rock and fucking roll
Pack the van and pass the bowl
500 miles to an empty show
500 miles, never going home
500 miles that goes to show you
No one wants to get to know you
I can’t do another venue
When all I want to do is kiss you

My love, subject of these songs
The only one who can do no wrong
Lady love where I belong
Remind me what I’m doing here at all

Rock and roll, rock and fucking roll!
Pack the van and pass the bowl!
Rock and Roll!

You, my love, subject of these songs
The only one who can do no wrong
Lady love, love where I belong
Remind me what I’m doing here at all!
