Rolling down the highway, going to a show
Stopping on the by ways, playing rock n roll
Getting robbed, getting stoned
Getting beat up, broken boned
Getting had, getting took
I tell you folks, it's harder than it looks

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll

If you think it's easy doing one night stands
Try playing in a rock n roll band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll

Hotel motel, make you wanna cry
Baby's on the hard sell, know the reason why
Getting old, getting grey
Getting ripped off, underpaid
Getting sold, second hand
That's how it goes playing in a band

It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll

If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll

Gotta tell ya
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll
It's a long way, it's a long way, it's a long way
