There's Always Rock and Roll

(George Douglas Lee and Noise Poets)

This one was inspired by a local bummish type, whom I ran into on the sidewalk by my house as he was finished doing yardwork and headed to the liquor store. He was telling me about the latest rock star who died (makes me nervous, same age range as me), and as he was about to walk away, he said "hey, it's ok. whatever happens, there's always rock and roll!" I immediately thought of what a tremendous title that would be for a song, so I rushed home, sat down, wrote it and recorded it the next day. So there you go! Inspirations can come from anyone and anywhere!

There’s Always Rock and Roll!

Lyrics and Music by George Douglas Lee

 

No matter what happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Whenever you feel like giving up the fight

Listen to the music in your soul

 

Whatever happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Listen to the music and you’ll be alright

There’s always rock and roll!

 

When you’re discouraged, run out of courage

Turn on the music, and turn it up loud (turn it up loud)

It’s down deep inside you, always beside you

So get up and dance right now

 

How many times has a great song lifted you up, when you were down?

How many memories that changed your life, started with that rock and roll sound?

 

No matter what happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Whenever you feel like giving up the fight

Listen to the music in your soul

 

Whatever happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Listen to the music and you’ll be alright

There’s always rock and roll!

 

Instrumental bit

 

Verse:

You feel lost, and not having any fun

Rock and Roll will take you into the sun

It’s down deep inside you, always beside you

So get up and dance right now

 

How many times has a great song lifted you up, when you were down?

How many memories that changed your life, started with that rock and roll sound?

 

 

 

 

No matter what happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Whenever you feel like giving up the fight

Listen to the music in your soul

 

Whatever happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Listen to the music and you’ll be alright

There’s always rock and roll!

No matter what happens in your life, there’s always rock and roll

(Don’t you worry, you will see)

 

Listener, LISTEN! to the beat

Get up on your feet!

Let the music move you, and drag you up into the light

You’re gonna be alright

Listener – LISTEN – You gonna be alright!

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

No matter what happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Whenever you feel like giving up the fight

Listen to the music in your soul

 

Whatever happens to you in your life

There’s always rock and roll (the beat will get you on your feet)

Listen to the music and you’ll be alright

There’s always rock and roll!

No matter what happens in your life, there’s always rock and roll

(Don’t you worry, you will see)
