rock ‘n’ roll singer lyrics – shakin’ stevens

“rock ‘n’ roll singer”

well once upon a time it was a sinner crime
to be a rock’n’roll singer.
you were a long time user, a music abuser
if you we’re an all in all singer.

you we’re the thug with the bug drinkin’out the jug
just a j.d man
just a country boy, a music star
the current high caller.

but everybody’s a rock’n’roll singer today
you’re the hip flask ringer, be hot man to know
a rock’n’roll singer today.

[solo]

yeah manfred mann has a rock’n’roll band
john mayall can really wail
and little elton john is really gone
well superstars all cl*ssic rock
tryin’ very hard to shock
be the first head on your block
they write songs all double pie
they all livin’ a lie
s word on a purple sky

but everybody’s a rock’n’roll singer today
you’re the hip flask ringer, be hot man to know
a rock’n’roll singer today
i said you’re the hip flask ringer, be hot man to know
a rock’n’roll singer today
