"Long Before Rock´n`Roll" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
She said, ?I like just lying on the bed
Beneath the ceiling with her head upon my pillow
There's nothing else I'd rather do?

And I said, ?I'd rather do it on the couch or in the kitchen
Where about you seem so down, child
Like nothing could destroy your world?

But I never ever wanted to
You would never ever let me to
I would but you must wait until it gets dark

So what is it that you want me to?
Well, I can make it if it's good for you
So play me a song from 1954

Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll

Well, later she came with flowers in her arms
Said, ?We can do it in the car
My brother owns it
The driver seat is made for us?

And I said, ?I'd rather grab a bite to eat
There is a diner down the street
Let's take it easy and join this lovely harmony"

But I never ever wanted to
You would never ever let me to
I would but you must wait until it gets dark

So what is it that you want me to?
I can make it if it's good for you
So play me a song from 1954

Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll

Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Before rock'n'roll
Long before rock'n'roll

Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Before rock'n'roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who wants to have sex with his girlfriend, but she doesn't (she just wants to lye on the bed). then later in the song she changes her mind and says that they can do it in her brother's car, but then he just wants to go and grab something to eat.

    General Commentwell apparently they wrote the song about rock n roll from the 50s/60s or somthing like that so i figure its not completely about sex...

    General CommentI think, maybe, it's about sex and the whole before rock 'n' roll thing too. The whole fact that music used to be so innocent and then in the late 50s early 60s, music became 'sexy' and alot of songs were full of strong innuendos.
    He wants to hear something pure and innocent, something that's not sexual or trashy. He wants to go for a bite to eat, but she wants to do it in his brother's car.

    General CommentWell, I saw an interview once - where the band said themself that this song is about a girl they met once, who told them that boys and girls were much closer before rock'n'roll.
