"Rock And Roll" as written by and Lou Reed....
Ginni said when she was five years old
You know there's nothing going down at all
She turned on that radio
And there was nothing happenin' at all
She turned on that LA station
Couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started dancing to that fine fine music
Her life was saved by rock and roll

Despite all the complications
You could just dance to that rock and roll station
And it was alright
It was alright
It was alright
It was alright, you betcha

Ginni said when she was five years old
You know our parents will be the death of us all
Two TV sets and two cadillac cars
Well they don't mean nothin' at all
She turned on that LA station
Couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started dancin' to that fine fine music
Her life was saved by rock and roll

Despite all the complications
You could just dance to that rock and roll station
And it was alright
It was alright
It was alright
It was alright, you betcha

    General CommentMost likely it's about a girl who was used to the same music and got bored with it until she listened to a station from LA and fell in love.

    "Despite all the complications, you could just dance to that rock and roll station" would probably mean since she lives in a small town or just far away from LA, she probably couldnt get there to see live music, so she'll just listen to the radio!

    Easy as pie, at least i hope!^^
