Long Live Rock



 Down at the Astoria the scene was changing
Bingo and rock were pushing out x-rating
 We were the first band to vomit at the bar 
And find the distance to the stage too far 
 Meanwhile it's getting late at ten o'clock  
 Rock is dead they say
A A6 A6 A A D (Same as intro)
Long live rock
Long live rock
I need it every night
 Long live rock
D D6 D D6 A A6...
Come on and join the line
 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
 Landslide, rocks are falling
Falling down around our very heads
We tried but you were yawning
 Look again 
 Rock is dead
 Rock is dead
 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
 Long live rock
I need it every night
(riff for guitar 2)

 Long live rock
Come on and join the line
 Long live rock
Be it dead or alive
