Lyrics

Now Jenny says
When she was about five years old
“You know that nothin’ happens at all”

Yeah every time she put on her radio
There was a nothing going down at all
Not at all

And went about money she put in on a New York station
And she couldn’t believe what she head at all
Not at all

She started dancing to that fine-fine music
Man – oh , that’s what they say about Rock ‘N’ Roll
Rock ‘N’ Roll

Despite the invitations
You can dance to the Rock ‘N’ Roll station
And it was alright
It was alright

Now Jenny says
When she was about five years old man
“Money’s gonna be the death of us all

You know two TVs and two Cadillac cars man
It won’t help me at all
Not at all”

And went about money she put in on a New York station man
And she couldn’t believe what she head at all
Not at all

She started dancing to that fine-fine music
Man – oh , that what they say about Rock ‘N’ Roll
Rock ‘N’ Roll

Despite all the invitations
You can dance to the Rock ‘N’ Roll station
It was alright
And it was alright

Now Jenny says
When she was only five years old
“Man nothin’s goin’ happen at here at all”

Every time she put on her god damn radio
There was a nothing going down at all
Not at all

And went about money she put on this L.A. station
She says I can’t believe what I head at all
Not at all

She started dancing to all that fine-fine music
Wow!  That what they say about Rock ‘N’ Roll
Rock ‘N’ Roll!

Despite all the invitation
You can dance to a Rock ‘N’ Roll station

You know it was alright
You know it was alright
Man it was all right
It was alright
Yeah!
