"I Love Rock N' Roll" as written by and Sachs Allan Preston Richards Jake Hooker....
I saw him dancin' there by the record machine
I knew he must a been about seventeen
The beat was goin' strong
Playin' my favorite song
An' I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till he was with me, yeah me,
An' I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till he was with me, yeah me, singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

He smiled so I got up and' asked for his name
That don't matter, he said,
'Cause it's all the same
Said can I take you home where we can be alone
An' next we were movin' on
He was with me, yeah me
Next we were movin' on
He was with me, yeah me singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

Said can I take you home where we can be alone
Next we're movin' on
He was with me, yeah me
And we'll be movin' on
An' singin' that same old song
Yeah with me, singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

    General CommentIt's funny you guys mention Brittney Spears is covering this song. This song was originally sung by The Arrows, but Joan Jett saw them one time and she asked if she could cover that and they gladly said yes because they didn't care for it too much. So Brittney is covering a song Joan Jett covered. What a god damn idiot.

    The song meaning to this is pretty much straight forward. It's about her taking a young kid home and having sex with him. But she's doing all the aggressiveness. She was trying to represent women as powerful.

    General CommentThis is a good song...the guitar solo in the song is not the best of all time. I have heard better but this is a great song to crank up and sing to loudly.
