Rock and roll is history,
It's like reading in a library,
It's got little or nothing to do, nothing to do with me

Rock and roll is as cold as clay,
It's time to take the corpse away,
Smell it rot on a hot, hot, hot, hot, hot summer day

It's all right, it's all right,
It's all right,
It's all right, it's all right,
It's all right

Rock and roll means nothing to me,
It's just some other kid's poetry,
Keep the art for the students,
The students and the bourgeoisie

Rock and roll is a simple lie,
I can see it when I squint my eyes,
Repetition is a cheap yet convincing, a cheap yet convincing disguise

It's all right, it's all right,
It's all right,
It's all right if you're white and you wanna be uptight,
It's all right

It's all right if you're white and you wanna be uptight,
It's all right if you're bright and you're staying up all night,
It's all right if you're tight and just wanna be polite,
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right, it's all right
