It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)

Original Artist

The Rolling Stones

If I could stick my hand in my heart
Spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy, would it slide on by
Would you think the boy is strange, ain't he strange?

If I could win you, if I could sing you
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried, if I cried?

Said, I know it's only rock 'n' roll, I like it
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, like it, like it, yes I do
I said I like it, said I like it, I said I like it
Baby, can't you see this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick your knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain, ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy, would it slide on by
Would you think the boy's insane, he's insane

Well, I know it's only rock 'n' roll, I like it
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, like it, like it, yes I do
I said I like it, I said I like it, said I like it
Baby, can't you see this old boy has been a lonely?

I bet you think that you're the only girl around
I bet you think that you're the only boy in town, town,

Well, I know it's only rock 'n' roll, I like it
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, I like it
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, I like it
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, like it, like it, yes I do
I said I like it, said I like it, I said I like it, well, how do you fuckin' like it?

I said, I know it's only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, yeah
Only rock 'n' roll but I like it, ooh

Right, I know it's only rock 'n' roll, yeah
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, yeah
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, one more
I know it's only rock 'n' roll, like it, like it, yes I do
