Songtekst

B.B. Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers,
Lonnie Mack and Twangin' Eddy, here's my ring we're going steady,
Take it easy, take me higher, liar, liar, house on fire,
Locomotion, Poco passion, Deeper Purple, Satisfaction,
Baby, baby, gotta, gotta, gimme, gimme, gettin' hotter,
Sammy's cooking, Leslie's gory, Ritchie Valens, end of story.
Mahavishnu, Fujiama, Kama Sutra, Rama Lama,
Richard Perry, Spector, Barry, Righteous, Archies, Nilson Harry,
Shimmy shimmy Ko Ko boppin', Fats is back (and) finger poppin'.

[chorus]:
Life is a Rock, but the radio rolled me,
Gotta turn it up louder, so my D.J. told me
Life is a Rock, but the radio rolled me,
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie.

FM, AM, hits are clickin', while the clock is tockin' tickin',
Friends and romans salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations,
Carly Simon I behold her, Rolling Stoning, Center Folder,
Johnny Cash and Johnny Rivers, can't stop now I've got the shivers,
Mungo Jerry, Peter Peter, Paul Paul, and Mary Mary,
Dr. John the Nightly Tripper, Doris Day and Jack the Ripper.
Got to go sir, got to swelter, Leon Russell, Gimme Shelter,
Miracles in Smokey places, slide guitars and fender basses,
Mushroom Omelet, Bonnie Bramlet, Wilson Pickett, stomp and kick it.

Life is a Rock, but the radio -
Life is a Rock, but the radio - Whoo!

Arthur Janov primal screamin', Hawkins Jay and Dale and Ronnie,
Kukla Fran, and Norman Okla, Denver John and Osmond Donnie,
J.J. Cale, 'n' Z.Z. Top 'n' L.L. Bean 'n' D.D. Dinah,
David Bowie, Steely Dan and singin' proud oh C.C. Rider.
Edgar Winter, Joanie Sommers, Ides of March and Johnny Thunder,
Eric Clapton, pedal wah-wah, Stephen Foster doo-dah doo-dah.
Good Vibrations, Help Me Rhonda, Surfin' Girl and Little Honda.
Tighter, tighter, honey, honey, sugar, sugar, yummy, yummy,
CBS and Warner Brothers, RCA and all the others.

[chorus]

[parlando]:
Listen,
Remember, they're playing our song

Rock it, sock it, Alan Freed me, Murray Kaufman tried to lead me,
Fish and swim and Boston Monkey, make it bad and play it funky!

Freddie King and Albert King and B.B. King and frolicking...
