Lyrics


I saw him dancin' there by the record machine I knew he must a been about seventeen The beat was goin' strong Playin' my favorite song An' I could tell it wouldn't be long Till he was with me, yeah me An' I could tell it wouldn't be long Till he was with me, yeah me, singin'

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with me

He smiled so I got up and asked for his name That don't matter, he said 'Cause it's all the same Said "Can I take you home where we can be alone?" An' next we were movin' on He was with me, yeah me Next we were movin' on He was with me, yeah me singin'

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with me

Said "Can I take you home where we can be alone?" Next we're movin' on He was with me, yeah me And we'll be movin' on An' singin' that same old song Yeah with me, singin'

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with me

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll So put another dime in the jukebox, baby I love rock n' roll So come an' take your time an' dance with me
