"If You Can't Rock Me" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
The band's on stage and it's one of those nights, oh yeah
The drummer thinks that he is dynamite, oh yeah
You lovely ladies in your leather and lace
A thousand lips I would love to taste
I've got one heart and it hurts like hell
If you can't rock me somebody will
If you can't rock me somebody will
Now who's that black girl in the bright blue hair, oh yeah
Now don't you know that it's rude to stare, oh yeah
I'm not so green but I'm feelin' so fresh
I simply like to put her to the test
She's so alive and she's dressed to kill, but
If you can't rock me somebody will
If you can't rock me somebody will
If you can't rock me somebody will
If you can't rock me somebody will
Now I ain't lookin' for no pretty face, oh no
Or for some hooker workin' roughish trade
And there ain't nothing like a perfect mate
And I ain't lookin' for no wedding cake
But I been talkin' 'bout it much too long
I think I better sing just one more song
I've got one heart and it hurts like hell
I'm simply dying for some thrills and spills
Oh yeah
If you can't rock me
If you can't rock me, somebody will
Somebody will, somebody will
If you can't rock me
Well, well, well, well

    General CommentCan you call this a great song? Maybe not. It's at least very good.

    General CommentTrue, not great, but good because, well, it's the Stones.

    The shrieks at the end of certain words knock me out.

    Pretty images too.

    General CommentThis song is great. They still play it in concert all the time. It's a good opener on a good album but when you compare it to other stones classics it's not in the league of them but it's cool.

    General Commentman I wonder how many times jagger has gotten laid in his life? I definately am envious of his past love life actually come to think of it im envious of anyone that gets laid mainly because I of course being the loser i am have never gotten laid. but thats besides the point my real intents for this post were to say that this song is just grand in its own unique way!

    General CommentJust replace the word “rock”with your favourite expletive and it makes much more sense.
