Top 10: Rock / Britsh Medley Lyrics

Top 10: Rock / Britsh Medley by Theresa Sokyrka  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Top 10: Rock / Britsh Medley The warden threw a party in the county jail.
The prison band was there and they began to wail.
The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing.
You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the jailhouse rock.

Spider murphy played the tenor saxophone,
Little joe was blowin' on the slide trombone.
The drummer boy from illinois went crash, boom, bang,
The whole rhythm section from the purple gang.

Let's rock, oh little baby, let's rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin' to the jailhouse rock.
Dancin to the jailhouse rock
Dancin to the jailhouse rock
Dancin to the jailhouse rock

I don't know what is it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never wanna let you go
'Cause you started something, can't you see
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only wanna be with you

You stopped to smile at me
And asked if I cared to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a change
Now listen honey

I just wanna be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, can't you see
That ever since we met you've got a hold on me
No matter what you do I only wanna be with you

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face
Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case.
I said to my reflection, Let's get out of this place.

Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What's been going on
Now that you have gone
There's no other
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Turned away from it all
Like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why why why why why?
Love Love Love Love Love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love one more chance?
Why can't we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love?
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For the people on the edge of the light
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure

Now there was a time
When they used to say
That behind every great man
There had to be a great woman.

Oh, in these times of change
You know that it's no longer true.
So we're coming out of the kitchen
'cause there's something we forgot to say to you.

Sisters are doing it for themselves.
Yeah

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation of the female state.
We've got doctors, lawyers politicians too
Oh yeah
Everybody take a look around.
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see?
There's a woman right next to you.
Whoa yeah!

Sisters are doing it for themselves.
Standing on their own two feet.
Ringing on their own bells
Sisters are doing it for themselves

Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
Stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Lived a country boy named Johnny B. Good
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like a ring in a bell

Go, go, go Johnny go, go, go Johnny, go go
Go Johnny go, go, go Johnny go go
Johnny B. Good
