Hey, wha'cha doing tonight?
(What'cha doing? What'cha doing?)
Have you heard that the world's gone crazy?
Young Americans, listen when I say

There's people putting us down
I know they're saying, we've gone lazy
To tell you the truth
We've all seen better days

Don't need no fast buck, lame duck, profits for fun
No quick trick, plans, take the money and run
We need long term, slow burn, getting it done
And some straight talking, hard working, son of a guns

So, what'cha doing tonight?
(What'cha doing? What'cha doing?)
But I got faith in our generation
Let's stick together, futurize our attitudes

I ain't lookin' to fight
But I know with determination
We can challenge the schemers
Who cheat all the rules

You can take pride, be wise in spotting the fools
No big shots, crackpots bending the rules
Fair shot here, for me and for you
Just knowing that we can't lose, but we'll be

Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
Tonight, tonight

Come on, take pride, be wise in spotting the fools
No big shots, crackpots bending the rules
Fair shot here, for me and for you
Just knowing that we can't lose, but we'll be

Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
Rockin' in paradise, rockin' the paradise, tonight
