Revolution rock, it is a brand new rock
A bad, bad rock, this here revolution rock

Careful how you move, Mac, you dig me in me back
And I'm so pilled up that I rattle
I have got the sharpest knife
So I cut the biggest slice
I have no time to do battle

Everybody smash up your seats
And rock to this brand new beat
This here music mash up the nation
This here music cause a sensation
Tell your ma, tell your pa
Everything's gonna be all right
Can't you feel it?
Don't ignore it
Gonna be alright

Revolution rock, I am in a state of shock
So bad, bad rock, this here revolution rock

Careful how you slide, Clyde, all you did was glide
And you poured your beer in me hat
With my good eye on the beat, living on sensation street
I ain't got no time for that

To the cruellist mobsters in Kingstown, with the hardest eyes and the coldest tongue: Is your heart so made of rock that the blood must flow 'round the block?
Are you listening mobsters? Hey!
All people grow old, gotta die, while those kinda fools go rolling by
It's food for thought, mobsters
Young people shoot their days away
I've seen talent thrown away
All you loan sharks!

The organ plays and they're dancing to the brand new beat
This here music mash up the nation
This here music cause a sensation
Tell your ma-ma-ma-ma, tell your pa-pa-pa-pa everything's gonna be all right
Can't you feel it? Don't ignore it
Everything's gonna be alright
I say, revolution rock

There's that old cheese grater
Rubbing me down
This must be the way out

Here's the cheap bit
OO la oo la oo la

Any song you want
Playing requests now on the bandstand
El Clash Combo
Paid fifteen dollars a day
Weddings, parties, anything
And Bongo Jazz a speciality
