Song Lyrics

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

I'm a rocke, I'm a rocker
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 telling a dirty joke or two
In walked this chick and I knew she was up to something
I kissed her right there out of the blue

I said "Hey baby meet me I'm a tough guy
I gotta move the cycle outside you wanna try?"
She just looked at me and rolled her eyes
I'll do it all for you, I'll show ya

I'm a rocker
I'm a roller too honey
I'm a rocker

I love to Rock and Roll
Got my records on the Rock On stall
Rock and roll
Teddy boy you got them all
You got them better

I love to Rock and Roll
Get my records on the Rock On stall
Rock and roll
Teddy boy you got them all all all all
I'm a rocker yeah
