LET YOUR BODY BURN

You say you've finally found yourself

How come honey you still look so lost?

On your own at seventeen

Now you know how much your freedom cost

Everybody everywhere

Wants to take you down and get their turn

Honey it's alright

You just go ahead and let your body burn

I seen you begging on the street

I wish you'd point those begging eyes at me

You say I never act my age

If that's the way I am then I ought to be

Everybody everywhere

Wants to take you down and get their turn

Honey it's alright

You just go ahead and let your body burn

I seen you there with your painted face 

Honey what you got that make up for?

I've seen you open up those legs 

Honey why don't you open up the door?

Everybody everywhere

Wants to take you down and get their turn

Honey it's alright

You just go ahead and let your body burn

LONELY BOY

Well I'm a lonely boy

I ain't got a place to call my own

I don't ever want to let you down

But if I come around

I know I will

She said "Baby I'm leaving

Here's my diamond ring

I've packed up all my things

Believe it'a true

That I don't need you"

Well I'm a lonely boy

I ain't got a place to call my own

I don't ever want to let you down

But if I come around

I know I will

She said "Baby I'm leaving

Here's my diamond ring

I've packed up all my things

Believe it's true

That I don't need you"

She said "I'm leaving"

She said "I'm leaving you tonight"

Well I'm a lonely boy

I ain't got a place to call my own

I don't ever want to let you down

But if I come around

I know I will

MY BABY DON'T DANCE (TO NOTHING BUT ROCK N' ROLL)

Well Two Step Tommy got the red eye blues

The joints rocked up and they're breaking the news

Little Suzie Q-sie get her dancing shoes

The place started rocking at a quarter to two

The band started playing at a quarter to one

Romping in the alley like they're strutting a gun

Two Step Tommy had to leave the place

cause he got "No-steps" written across his face

And if you can't dance to Rock n' Roll

You can't dance to nothing at all

When we go out lord we have a ball

Cause my baby don't dance to nothing but rock n' roll

The place is still rockin' it's a quarter to four

Little Suzie Q-sie wiggled right out the door

Two Step Tommy said the place was a bore

Nobody's feet even touched the floor

You work all day and you rock all night

Little Suzie Q-sie was out of sight

Law came in tried to shut us down

We played one song they were bopping around

And if you can't dance to Rock n' Roll

You can't dance to nothing at all

When we go out lord we have a ball

Cause my baby don't dance to nothing but rock n' roll

The place stopped rockin' at a quarter to eight

That night of dancing was a fine sweet date

Little Suzie Q-sie left the bar too late

I fell on my knees and I found my way

Now if you can't dance to rock n' roll

You can't dance to nothing at all

When we go out Lord we have a ball

Cause my baby don't dance no my baby don't dance

And if you can't dance to Rock n' Roll

You can't dance to nothing at all

When we go out lord we have a ball

Cause my baby don't dance to nothing but rock n' roll
