Words and music by John Kay and Michael Wilk

Money, money, day and night
You got to pay and pay
Well, I tell you honey, it just ain't right
To let them chase you that way
If dog eat dog is what they want then you must leave your mark
If dog eat dog is all they know you got to bite and bark
So if you need me to join the fight, girl
I'll be there right by your side
Oh, lean on me girl, I'm

Rock steady, I'm rough and ready
Nobody will make us run
Rock steady, I'm tough as any
Nobody will take our fun

Groan and moanin', rant and rave
It's 'bout to drive me wild
Well, you just mind your own and stay in your cave
And we won't have to fight
It's "Don't do this and don't say that and don't have too much fun
You can't do this, you can't say that, it simply isn't done".
Well, if we're needed to make a stand girl
We'll be right here side by side
Oh, stay with me girl I'm?br>
Rock steady, I'm rough and ready
Nobody will make us run
Rock steady, I'm tough as any
Nobody will take our fun

Ah baby, I go crazy,
Tryin' to deal with these jokers and clowns
Nobody here will turn us around
There's no more runnin' and no more time
It's here and now, I'm gonna stand my ground

Rock steady, I'm rough and ready
Nobody will make us run
Rock steady, I'm tough as any
Nobody will take our fun
