Tonights the night we'll make history,
As sure as dogs can fly.
And i'll take any risk,
To tie back the hands of time.
And stay with you here, all night
So take your seats,
And don't be late.
Cuz we need your spirits high,
To turn on these theater lights.
Brighten the darkest skies...
Here at the Para--------DISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey whatcha doin' tonight?
(whatcha doin', whatcha doin')
Have you heard that the worlds gone crazy?
Young Americans listen when I say,
There's people puttin' us down.
I know the sayin' that we've gone lazy.
To tell ya the truth we've all seen better days.

Don't need no fast buck, lame duck, profits for fun.
Quick, trick plans, take the money and run.
We need long term slow burn gettin' it done
And some straight talkin', hard workin', son of a gun!!

So, whatcha doin' tonight?
(whatcha doin, whatcha doin)
I got faith in our generation.
Let's stick together and futurize our attitudes.
I ain't lookin' to fight.
But I know with determination.
We can challenge the schemers who cheat all the rules.

Come on and take pride,
Be wise in spottin' the fools.
Big shots, crack pots, bending the rules.
A fair shot here for me and for you.
Knowing that we can't lose!!
And we'll be
Rockin' in Paradise!,
Rockin' the Paradise tonight!,
Rockin' in Paradise!,
Rockin' the Paradise tonight, tonight...TONIGHT!!

(Guitar solo)

Come on and take pride,
Be wise in spottin' the fools.
Big shots, crack pots, bending the rules.
A fair shot here for me and for you.
Knowing that we can't lose!!
And we'll be,
Rockin' in Paradise!,
Rockin' the Paradise tonight!, (You know we're Rockin' The Paradise!!)
Rockin' in Paradise!,
Rockin' the Paradise tonight!,
Rockin' in paradise! (We're Rockin' in paradise!!!)
Rockin' the paradise tonight!

    After hearing this song (for the first time in about 20 years) i think it applies to obama... And that he needs to go!!!

    It sounds positive, like mitt romney and paul ryan. In fact, they should use it for their campaign song... Especially when obama called the us citizens "lazy" in an interview.

    It's about the politicians we elect to office. It identifies the type of behavior that will eventually destroy the "american experiment. "
