Our cover of Thin Lizzy's 'the Rocker' from their 1973 album 'Vagabonds of the western world'

lyrics

I am your main man
if you're looking for trouble
take no lip, no-one's
tougher than me
if I kicked your face
you'd soon be seeing double
Hey little girl keep your hands off me

'cause I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
yeah I'm a rocker
and I'm a roller, too, honey
I'm a rocker

Down at the juke joint
me and the boys were stompin'
bippin' and boppin' and tellin'
a dirty joke, or two
In walks this chick and
I knew she was up to something
so I kissed her, right there
out of the blue
I said hey babe, meet me
I'm a tough guy,
got my 'cycle outside
wanna try?
She just rolled them big eyes
and said, I'd do it all for you

'cause I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
yeah I'm a rocker
and I'm a roller, too, honey
I'm a rocker

I love to rock'n'roll
I get my records
at the rock'em stall
sweet rock'n'roll
teddy boy you've got them all

ooh yeah
'cause I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
yeah I'm a rocker
and I'm a roller, too, honey
I'm a rocker
