"Rock This Town" as written by and Brian Robert Setzer....
Well, my baby and me went out late Saturday night
I had my hair piled high and my baby just looked so right
Well, pick you up at ten, gotta have you home at two
Mama don't know what I catched off of you
But that's all right 'cause we're looking as cool as can be

Well, we found a little place that really didn't look that bad
I had a whisky on the rocks
And change of a dollar for the jukebox
Well, I put the cold rock into that can
But all they played was disco, man
Come on, baby, baby, let's get out of here right away

We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Make'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till you pop
We're gonna rock till you drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out

Well, we're having a ball just 'a bopping on the big dance floor
Well, there's a real square cat, he looks a 1974
Well, he looked at me once, he looked at me twice
Look at me again and there's gonna be fight
We're gonna rock this town
We're gonna rip this place apart

We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Make'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till you pop
We're gonna rock till you drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock this place apart

We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Make'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock
We're gonna rock till you pop
We're gonna rock till you drop
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out

We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town
Rock it inside out

    General CommentI love that 50's feel that they give to this song, it's meaning is about a band playing at a dance and rocking the audiance.

    General CommentIt has a Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & His Comets feel to it. I read somewhere that the Stray Cats were influenced by Bill Haley & His Comets though, so that makes sense then.

    General CommentRockabilly is an awesome sound/genre of music. The song is about playing a dance and giving the people an awesome show and wanting more. The Stray Cats were influenced by Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent.

    General CommentI think I danced to this one every night for a year back in the early 80's. It's such a fun song. Obviously about having fun. I love the energy of this track. Setzer is one cool cat :)
