Lyrics - Rock 'N' Roll Damnation

(Young, Young & Scott)

Taken from the album Powerage

Recorded at Albert Studios, Sydney, NSW, Australia


Released in 1978

Produced by Harry Vanda & George Young

They say that you play too loud
Well baby that's tough
They say that you got too much
Can't get enough
They tell you that you look a fool
And baby I'm a fool for you
They say that your mind's diseased, shaky stuff

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation
Ma's own whippin' boy
Rock 'n' roll damnation
Take a chance, while you still got the choice

You say that you want respect
Honey for what ?
For everything that you've done for me
For that, thanks a lot
Come on, get up off your bended knees
You could, set your mind at ease
My temperature's running hot
Oh I've been waitin' all night for a bite of what you got

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation
Ma's own whippin' boy
Rock 'n' roll damnation
Take a chance, while you still got the choice

Oh it's a hard life

Damnation, they're puttin' you down
Damnation, all over town
Damnation, 'cause you're way outta reach
Livin' on the streets you gotta practice what you preach

And it's a rock 'n' roll damnation
Ma's own whippin' boy
Rock 'n' roll damnation
Take a chance, while you still got the choice

Damnation, left a happy home
Damnation, to live on your own
Damnation, you want to live in sin
Damnation, it's a rock 'n' roll
Damnation, just a bundle of joy
Damnation, you're a toy for a boy
Damnation, you got dollars in your eye
Damnation, always chasin' that pie in the sky
Damnation, rock 'n' roll
Damnation
