CHORUS: A B And all you sta-ations across the na-ation F# A E Please play our records for your congre- ga-ation Verse 2: The band soon started boomin'; they were rakin' in the coins They found a few musicians and persuaded them to join And Paul Revere decided, since they had such new-found fame "We need a fancy title," and the Raiders they became (chorus) Verse 3: They soon packed up for Hollywood to reap their fortunes there The streets aren't really paved with gold and you can't live on air And then Dick Clark approached them, said "I know a thing or 2: I'll put you on a TV show and make big stars of you." (chorus) Verse 4: Now things are goin' groovy and we really can't complain Though the pace of rock and rollin' nearly drives us all insane And everybody's pushin', sayin' "Give it all you can!" I've come to think of it, our business manager's our biggest fan (chorus)
