8...7...6...5...4...3...2...Yeah!

Like A Rocket
Like A Rocket
Like A Rocket
Mmm mmm Number one certifiable rocket-Yeah.

Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
Like A Rocket- B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
I got the whole universe in the palm of my hand.

Punch the transmission
Four on the floor
It's an awful lotta mill for a thirty two Ford
(If) it's got no fenders or running boards
To the finish line [I'll blow them/their doors???]

Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
Like A Rocket- B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Like A Rocket-Mmm mmm
Number one certifiable rocket-Yeah

Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
Like A Rocket- B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
If you drive a car then you understand...GO!

-guitar solo-------------(SCREAM)

Cruisin' down town
Everyone sees
Everyone's gotta car- wants a piece of me
Radio stays on hillbilly bop
Stickshift pokin' through the old rag top

Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
Like A Rocket- B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Like A Rocket-Mmm mmm
Number one certifiable rocket-Yeah

Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
Like A Rocket- B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Like A Rocket- Mmm mmm
I got the whole universe in the palm of my hand.

8...7...6...5...4...3...2...YEAH!

Yeah kids, that's "Like A Rocket".
That's Rock and roll!
