"Rock 'N Roll Is (Alive and Well)" as written by and Jonathan Cain John Charles Waite....
I wrote the president
But I got no reply
He claims he tells the truth
He writes it in the sky

The taxman's at the door
Though he never seems polite
They've got me cornered
Cornered in the light

We could change that overnight
So goodnight to all the world
Sleep tight all you boys and girls
I spent some time at school

Livin' by the rules
They didn't like me much
Hypocrites and fools
Old men teach young men

To surrender to the law
The straight and narrow path
Leads to the same old door
Gonne kick it in like before

So goodnight to all the world
Sleep tight all you boys and girls
Heaven walks hand in hand with hell
Rock 'n roll is alive and well

Too many heroes looking dead upon their feet
It's time to raise the roof
And shout it in the street
It's time to take command

It's time to make a stand
Yeah
Don't need a uniform
To know which side I'm on

Don't need a set of rules
To know what's right or wrong
I've been an outcast
In your eyes and to the law

The right hand takes away
The left hand asks for more
But we all know the score
So goodnight to all the world

Sleep tight all you boys and girls
Heaven walks hand in hand with hell
Rock 'n roll is alive
Is alive and well

So goodnight to all the world
Sleep tight all the boys and girls
Heaven walks hand in hand with hell
Rock 'n roll is alive

Is alive and well
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

Goodnight
Gonna have some fun tonight
Everything's alright
Goodnight

Goodnight
Goodnight
Sleep tight
