Only A Roach

This song is by Humble Pie and appears on the album Humble Pie (1970).

In a car, going home, getting wasted
Some cat stops and starts to make a crime
He said : 'Son, I'm afraid I must bust you'
'For getting spaced I just must waste your time'.

Only a roach
Won't keep us from crossing no ocean?

So they hounded us down to the station
And said just how sorry they were
And they spoke of the good in just drinking
And drinking's all they're good for.

I said ...
Only a roach
Won't keep us from crossing no ocean?

And the judge, well he just would not listen
But then listening ain't what he's paid for
'Cause he's paid for just gettin' his ass sore
Forever and ever more.

Said : 'You pay through the nose'
'For counsul and the clothes that you wore'
Ah, keep playing.

Only a roach
Won't keep us from crossing no ocean?
I said ...
Only a roach
Won't keep us from crossing no ocean?
