Lyrics - Let There Be Rock

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album Let There Be Rock

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia

Released in 1977

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

In the beginning
Back in nineteen fifty-five
Man didn't know about a rock 'n' roll show
And all that jive
The white man had the schmaltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news
He said :

"Let there be sound", and there was sound
"Let there be light", and there was light
"Let there be drums", and there was drums
"Let there be guitar", and there was guitar
Oh "Let there be rock"

And it came to pass
That rock 'n' roll was born
All across the land every rockin' band
Was blowing up a storm
And the guitarman got famous
The businessman got rich
And in every bar there was a super star
With a seven-year itch
There were fifteen million fingers
Learning how to play
And you could hear the fingers picking
And this is what they had to say :

"Let there be light
Oooh "Let there be rock"

One night in a club called 'The Shaking Hand'
There was a forty-two decibel rocking band
And the music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd :

"Let there be rock"
