But I'm having trouble smiling myself

And now you ask me for a song to help you along
But I'm sittin' in a rock 'n' roll mood

Look at himself in the act
Fortune teller is trying to tell about
What she's doing the farm and that ain't all

Now won't you think of a man with a watch in his hand
Who's dying in to himself, duh
Now how about the singer whose sittin' here singing
That he's sittin on the rock 'n' roll mood

He'd like to help you but he knows

Sittin' on the rock 'n' roll mood

Here's an old saying, I think I'll go home
Now you ask me for a song to
