Day after day I'm more confused
but I look for the light through the pouring rain
you know thats a game that I hate to lose
i'm feeling the strain
ain't it a shame

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Beginning to think I'm wasting time
don't understand the things I do
the world outside looks so unkind
so I'm counting on you
to carry me through

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
I wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

When my mind is free
you know a melody can move me
when i'm feeling blue
the guitars coming through to sooth me

thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I beleive in your song
rythm and rhym and harmony
has helped me along
and making me strong

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
i wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
i wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
i wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away

Give me the beat boys
and free my soul
i wanna get lost in the rock and roll
and drift away
