Rock 'n' roll machine
I'm an American teenage raider
You better be in by eleven 'o'clock,
But I never come in 'til later.
Whatcha gonna do?
Where ya gonna go?
I ain't in to going steady.
Don't do this, don't do that,
I'll grow up when I'm ready
And I don't wanna be just a weekend kid,
I wanna party whenever I can
'Cause I don't care about going to school,
And I don't care about having friends,
And I don't care 'cause
I'm a rock 'n' roll machine
It's a Saturday night,
And I'm looking for some party action
I don't care about getting laid,
I want some quick and easy satisfaction
Whatcha gonna do?
Where ya gonna go?
I ain't in to going steady.
Don't do this, don't do that.
I'll grow up when I'm ready
And I don't wanna be just a weekend kid,
I wanna party whenever I can
'Cause I don't care about going to school,
And I don't care about having friends,
And I don't care 'cause I'm a rock 'n' roll machine
Rock, rock, Rock 'n' Roll
It's a Saturday night,
And I'm looking for some party action
I don't care about getting laid,
I want some quick and easy satisfaction
Whatcha gonna do?
Where ya gonna go?
I ain't in to going steady.
Don't do this, don't do that.
I'll grow up when I'm ready
And I don't wanna be just a weekend kid,
I wanna party whenever I can
'Cause I don't care about going to school,
And I don't care about having friends,
And I don't care 'cause
I'm a rock 'n' roll machine
Rock, rock, Rock 'n' Roll

    General Commenti hate that it was used in the clueless movie some years back. that really pisses me off. cause in clueless, they *did* care about going to school and having friends, first of all. and plus, i mean comon!

    General Commentthis song was also in "jawbreaker" (great movie, imo). the donnas also made an appearance in the movie (performing in it).
    this is one of my favourite songs by the donnas, i think!

    General Commentthis song rocks..although it's kinda contradictory to wanna party and not care about having friends when partying is a social activity among friends

    General CommentI always thought the lyric was "I'll throw up when I'm ready", meaning bulimia. I dunno.
