I can't believe y'all are still sayin'
We're a long way from rock'n'roll
You won't look for the good
In the tunes we're playin'
Prefer to say we got no soul

But day after day in town after town
People say we're doin' alright
We play and we stay boogyin' down
And rockin' on into the night

It's breath and words
And time you're wastin'
When you should be tryin'
To have a good time
For a good few years
It's been yours we've tasted
So here's a little piece of our mind

We'll roll and we'll roll
And we'll roll and we'll roll
Till we run out of reason to try
If it happens you don't approve
It don't matter we won't ask why

You can't keep a good band down
You'll never find the solution
You won't stop us runnin' around
You're dealin' with an institution

We'll fill our cup with wine while you
Fill your head with high ideals
You know so much
But you still can't touch
Till you find out how it feels

It'll take much more
Than the high and mighty
To bring down the king of the road
We could still be friends
And quit this fightin'
And let the real story be told

You can't keep a good band down
You'll never find the solution
You won't stop us runnin' around
With your paragraphs of pollution
