Come on and join the line F D Long live rock A A6... Be it dead or alive People walk in sideways pretending that they're leaving We put on our makeup and work out all the lead-ins Jack is in the alley selling tickets made in Hong Kong Promoter's in the pay box wondering where the band's gone Back in the pub the governor stops the clock Rock is dead they say Long live rock Chorus E D A Landslide, rocks are falling Falling down around our very heads We tried but you were yawning E D Look again C Rock is dead G/B Rock is dead A Rock is dead The place is really jumping to the Hiwatt amps Til a twenty inch cymbal fell and cut the lamps In the blackout they danced right into the aisle And as the doors fly open even the promoter smiles Someone takes his pants off and the rafters knock Rock is dead they say Long live rock A Long live rock I need it every night
