Track Lyrics

INTRO

I'D RATHER JACK
I'D RATHER JACK

VERSE 1

ALL WE WANNA DO IS HAVE A GOOD TIME
THEN YOU WENT AND TOOK OUR HOUSE AWAY
NO-ONE EVER ASKED FOR OUR OPINION
NO, NO, WE DON'T GET A SAY

BRIDGE 1

A.M., F.M., ALL THAT JAZZ
WE'D RATHER SING ALONG WITH YAZZ
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RADIO
THEY NEVER PLAY THE SONGS WE KNOW

CHORUS GOLDEN OLDIES, ROLLING STONES
WE DON'T WANT THEM BACK
I'D RATHER JACK
THAN FLEETWOOD MAC
NO HEAVY METAL, ROCK 'N' ROLL
MUSIC FROM THE PAST
I'D RATHER JACK
THAN FLEETWOOD MAC
I'D RATHER JACK

VERSE 2

CAN'T THEY SEE THAT EVERY GENERATION
HAS MUSIC FOR ITS OWN IDENTITY
BUT WHY THE D-J ON THE RADIO STATION
IS ALWAYS MORE THAN TWICE THE AGE OF ME

BRIDGE 2

WHO NEEDS PINK FLOYD, DIRE STRAITS
THAT'S NOT OUR MUSIC, IT'S OUT OF DATE
DEMOGRAPHIC STEREO
THEY NEVER PLAY THE SONGS WE KNOW

CHORUS

GOLDEN OLDIES, ROLLING STONES
WE DON'T WANT THEM BACK
I'D RATHER JACK
THAN FLEETWOOD MAC
NO HEAVY METAL, ROCK 'N' ROLL
MUSIC FROM THE PAST
I'D RATHER JACK
THAN FLEETWOOD MAC
I'D RATHER JACK
I'D RATHER JACK

SOLO

BRIDGE 3

A.M., F.M., ALL THAT JAZZ
WE'D RATHER SING ALONG WITH YAZZ
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RADIO
THEY NEVER PLAY THE SONGS WE KNOW
