Janis Ian – Get Ready To Roll lyrics

Play it low in the pocket
Something's just gotta break
You've been waiting so long for success
It's a shame it's gonna come too late

Baby, fly like a rocket
Shoot it out in stages from the mother ship
It's too bad you gotta lose what you had
And when you cruise
You gotta shoot it from the hip
Or you give 'em all the slip

And it's too bad
Hear they got you shootin' with a crooked cue
Hmm, somebody really got it in for you
When the night runs down all over town
And everybody's lost control
Get ready to roll
Get ready to roll

Play it high on the hip
Something's just got to give
Hold that. 38 ready 'til she really looks steady
Then just let her rip

Put some powder in your eyes
Just before that contact's made
How it must hurt to pervert
What the curtain can't hide
From that fire in your eyes
But is it really a surprise?

And it's too bad
Hear they got you shootin' with a crooked cue
Hmm, somebody really got it in for you
When the night runs down all over town
And everybody's lost control
Get ready to roll
Get ready to roll
