Roky Erickson – Wake Up And Rock `N` Roll lyrics

We get together for rock music about 12 o'clock every night
That's about the time I'm goin' it's when I feel alright
But no matter how late it is I never do get a fight
Cause when they hear this music rockin' aware
Sure beats sleeping tight

Get up and rock and roll
Wake up and wake your soul
From sleep to dancing on your toes
Get out down there and rock and roll
No matter what you're dreaming
Hair in ink wells I can be the mean one
Wake up to rock and roll

If I didn't wake my girl up each night she'd sadly start to cry
She jolts out of bed clothes over pajamas
No combing hair no waiting for sleepiness to leave her eyes
She could have been in a bad dream if you know what I mean
A rescue was in line they say it's a pleasant surprise
