School Of Rock – Long Way To The Top lyrics

Ridin on the highway,
Goin to a show,
Stoppin on the byway,
Playin rock and roll,
Gettin robbed, (gettin robbed)
Gettin stole, (gettin stole)
Gettin beat up, (gettin beat up)
Broken bones, (broken bones)
Gettin had, (gettin had)
Gettin took, (gettin took)
I tell you people it's harder than it looks,

Cause it's a long way
To the top if you wanna rock and roll
Yes, it's a long way
To the top if you wanna rock and roll

You think it's easy playin one night stand,
Well try playin in a rock roll band,
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll,

Hotel motel, (hotel motel)
Make you wanna cry, (make you wanna cry)
Made you do the hightail, (made you do the hightail)
Know the reason why, (know the reason why)
Gettin old, (gettin old)
Gettin greed, (gettin greed)
Gettin ripped off, (gettin ripped off)
Like a pig, (like a pig)
Gettin had, (gettin had)
Gettin took, (gettin took)
I tell you people it's harder than it looks

Cause it's a long way
To the top if you wanna rock and roll,

(spoken) alright, now take take it down nice and quiet,
The next thing I wanna hear,
Is a face-melting solo,
By our own Zach Moonyham,
Here we go,

~guitar solo~
Woo!

(spoken) dude, is my face ok? I think you melted it off,
Ahaha!
Alright, now the next thing I wanna hear,
The very next thing, I don't wanna hear anything, unless I hear,
A gut-busting drum solo,
From Freddy, take it away!

~drum solo~

Waaaa! It's a long way
To the top if you wanna rock and roll,
Yes, it's a long way
To the top if you wanna rock and roll,

(spoken) aaa, my gut got busted,
What did you do Freddy?
Now I think it's time,
We heard from a little somebody,
Lawrence on lead solo keyboard,
Go!

~keyboard solo~
Wooo!
Long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll!
Alright slow it down, listen up you guys,
Here's what I need, I need you girls to repeat after me,

Rubidubidubi (rubidubidubi)
Rumpinpumpinpain (rumpinpumpinpain)
Chikachikachikachikachikchik (chikachikachikachikachikchik)
Kakakakakakakakakeee (kakakakakakakakakeee)

(spoken) alright, now the first test is over,
I'm gonna need alicia to give me a 2 second vocal solo, go
Here it goes

Cause it's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock and rooo-ooo-ooo-ooollll

(spoken) don't boggart the mic alicia,
That was beautiful but now it's time, c'mon Tamika

Ooo-ooo-ooo-000-000-000-Ooooaaaooo!!!!!

(spoken) that was tasty, Marta, blow my brains out, go

The movie is over, (the movie really over)
But we're still onscreen, (but we're still onscreen)
Everybody rockin, (everybody rockin)
Yea, we came from Horacegreen! (we came from Horace Green!)

Ayayayaaaayyyyy
Its time for my solo,
Yikyikyikayikayiakchik,
Yikyikyikayikayiakchik,
Whoawhoawhoaaoooo,
Whoawhoawhoaaoooo,
Movie's almost over, (movie's almost over)
Credits got to roll(credits got to roll)
Look at that name there(look at that name there)
I do not know that guy!(I do not know that guy!)
Check it out now
Check it out (check it out)
Check it out now
Aoooooo

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll,
Yes it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll!

(spoken) alright, that's it, stop you guys, stop,

Seriously, you guys, alright, take five

Take five, you wanna go? Alright, that was a good class.
