Rock & Roll Told Me So

about

Ever wake up one day and want to be in a rock & roll band? Me too! This song is about that, wanting to be not just a fan, but in a rock and roll band. It takes a playful twist to the idea that rock music "makes" people do things that are socially unacceptable. Oh no! Rock and Roll made me buy a guitar and get a tattoo! Those hidden messages!

lyrics

The first time I heard it on the radio
My mind couldn’t believe how didn’t know
That something like this I would find
Right there and then I made up my mind

Went down to the guitar store
Bought me a six-string that I fell for
Learned to play my favorite song
Kept the neighbors up all night long

Chorus:
Rock & roll told me so
Rock & roll told me so
Rock & roll told me so
Rock & roll told me so

See the glitter in my eyes
Baby, then you’ll know why

Got my tattoo the very next day
My parents didn’t know what to say
I’ll travel down this road as long as I can
Be the start, be a rock & roll fan

Chorus

I’ll travel down this road as long as I can
Be the start, be a rock & roll fan
I’ll travel down this road as long as I can
Be the start, be in a rock & roll band

Chorus
