They said "you're not normal,
why don't you sing R'n'B?"
I said "I got no rhythm, and I got no blues,
I'm as happy as can be."

They say "how can you not bop to hip hop?"
I say "I most certainly do. Did you not see me dancing the other night,
like the girls on Channel U?"

Yeah, I can wind down low,
Be like the girls in the video.
But for me, that's much too slow,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

I said yeah, I can wind down low,
Dance like the girls in the video.
But for me, that's a no-no,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

They say "why do you wear a shirt and tie?
That's a bit bizarre."
I said "I like to look good when I go on stage,
strumming my guitar."

I like to sing my songs about real life things,
like good times and romance.
And I prefer to do it in my skinny jeans,
And minuscule hot pants.

'Cause this baby got no back.

Yeah, I can wind down low,
Be like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's much too slow,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

I said yeah, I can wind down low,
Dance like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's a no-no,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

Why can't people just let me be?
I'm only putting out what comes best to me.
Some people get their kicks from other things,
But I get mine from wood and strings.

Yeah, I can wind down low,
Be like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's much too slow,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

I said yeah, I can wind down low,
Dance like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's a no-no,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

Yeah, I can wind down low,
Be like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's much too slow,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.

I said yeah, I can wind down low,
Dance like the girls in the videos.
But for me, that's a no-no,
Because I prefer rock n' roll.
