Tell a joke and you drink for free
Put the word to the melody
You're so good but you want to be bad
Never gonna be new again

There's a pretty blue sky somewhere
Highway to the rest of the world
Touch a star and you're gonna get burned
Rock and roll never learns

If it gives you joy
It gives you joy and you don't have to explain it
It gives you joy
And you don't have to explain it
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
Then you don't have to explain it

Rock and roll never learns
That jet lag is funny and it yearns (??)
You're so good but you want to be bad
Never gonna be new again

There's a pretty blue sky somewhere
Highway to the rest of the world
You touch a star and you're gonna get burned
Rock and roll

If it gives you joy, it gives you joy
And you don't have to explain it
It gives you joy
And you don't have to explain it
It gives you joy
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
Then you don't have to explain it

Smart girl
You always were a smart girl
With a stupid boy
Smart girl

If it gives you joy
Joy
If it gives you joy
Then you don't have to explain it
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
Then you don't have to explain it
If it gives you joy
If it gives you joy
(repeat to end)

    General CommentTranscribed as best as I could from the song I bought off of his official BandCamp page.
    The lyrics listed along with it over there are kinda different, complete with a verse which isn't heard at all in the mp3-release I have. Figured I mention that, in case it don't jibe with what others hear in their copy...

    Only one line I can't tell for sure. Marked by (??); other ears welcome.
