If I could stick my pen in my heart
I would spill it all over the stage

Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
would you think the boy is strange ?
Ain't he strange

If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
a love song so divine,

would it be enough for your cheating heart
if I broke down and cried ?
If I cried

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I know it's only rock'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely ?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
suicide right on stage

would it be enough for your teenage lust
would it help to ease the pain ?
Ease your brain ?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
feelings would flood on the page

Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
would ya think the boy's insane ?
He's insane

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
