I was just another child growin' wild in the city
Just gettin' by on a dream
I was thinkin' life was gonna be so pretty
It was pretty mean
I hit the road having no expectations
Just leavin' where I had been

I didn't care about the fame or the money
Show me a place to play and I'm gonna go

'Cause it's all for the love of rock & roll
Hear my music in the air and I'm losin' control
I don't care what you've heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock & roll

I hitched a ride on a trip going nowhere
Got fifty bucks and a bite
Ain't a lot of dough but when you know the feeling
Well it feels alright, alright
And when you finish with the band
And some honey grabs your hand, yeah
You get to thinkin' you might

That's when you notice there's a ring on her finger
That's when she tells you that she's single tonight

'Cause it's all for the love of rock & roll
Hear my music in the air and I'm losin' control
I don't care what you've heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock & roll

I got it made when I hit the stage a quarter to nine, yeah
Watch 'em dancin' in the haze
And the band's really pumpin'
Feel the rush and that's all it's about
I'm in for life and there's no getting out of the way

Yeah, all I want, all I need

Yeah, 'cause it's all for the love of rock & roll
Hear my music in the air and I'm losin' control
I don't care what you've heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock & roll
All for my love of rock & roll
