Lyrics:

I can’t believe y’all are still sayin’

We’re a long way from rock’n’roll

You won’t look for the good

In the tunes we’re playin’

Prefer to say we got no soul

 

But day after day in town after town

People say we’re doin’ alright

We play and we stay boogyin’ down

And rockin’ on into the night

 

It’s breath and words

And time you’re wastin’

When you should be tryin’

To have a good time

For a good few years

It’s been yours we’ve tasted

So here’s a little piece of our mind

 

We’ll roll and we’ll roll

And we’ll roll and we’ll roll

Till we run out of reason to try

If it happens you don’t approve

It don’t matter we won’t ask why

 

You can’t keep a good band down

You’ll never find the solution

You won’t stop us runnin’ around

You’re dealin’ with an institution

 

We’ll fill our cup with wine while you

Fill your head with high ideals

You know so much

But you still can’t touch

Till you find out how it feels

 

It’ll take much more

Than the high and mighty

To bring down the king of the road

We could still be friends

And quit this fightin’

And let the real story be told

 

You can’t keep a good band down

You’ll never find the solution

You won’t stop us runnin’ around

You’re dealin’ with an institution

 

You can’t keep a good band down

You’ll never find the solution

You won’t stop us runnin’ around

With your paragraphs of pollution

 

You can’t keep a good band down

You’ll never find the solution

You won’t stop us runnin’ around

You’re dealin’ with an institution

 

You can’t keep a good band down

You’ll never find the solution

You won’t stop us runnin’ around

With your paragraphs of pollution

 

You can’t keep a good band down …
