Lyrics:

God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Put it in the soul of everyone.

Do you know what you want?
You donít know for sure;
You donít feel right, you canít find a cure.
And youíre gettiní less than what youíre lookiní for.
You don't have money or a fancy car,
When youíre tired of wishiní on a falling star,
You gotta put your faith in a loud guitar.

God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to everyone.
God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Put it in the soul of everyone.

Spoken: "Now listen . . . "
If you wanna be a singer,
Or play guitar,
Man, you gotta sweat or you wonít get far,
Cause itís never too late to work nine-to-five.
You can take a stand,
Or you can compromise,
You can work real hard or just fantasize,
But you donít start liviní Ďtil you realize . . .
I gotta tell ya!

God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to everyone.
God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Put it in your soul . . . .

God gave rock and roll to you, (to everyone he gave the song to be sung),
Gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to everyone.
God gave rock and roll to you, (to everyone he gave the song to be sung),
Gave rock and roll to you,
Saved rock and roll for everyone.
Saved rock and roll . . . .

God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to everyone. (Oh yeah!)
God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Put it in the soul of everyone.
God gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to you,
Gave rock and roll to everyone (continued) . . .

Spoken:
I know life sometimes can get tough!
And I know life sometimes can be a drag!
But people, we have been given a gift,
We have been given a road,
And that roadís name is . . . Rock and Roll!
How many people here like the sound of rock and roll music?
Bless you! Bless you! Bless you!
