Abdul, Paula - Rock House Lyrics




[Chorus:]
ROCK YOU HOUSE YOU TURN THE FIRE UP TAKIN' OVER
ROCK YOU HOUSE YOU PEOPLE GET STRONG
ROCK YOU HOUSE YOU TIME TO TAKE THE WEIGHT OFF
OUR SHOULDER ROCK YOU HOUSE YOU PEOPLE MOVE ON

AND YES IT'S TIME TO GROW
SPENT ENOUGH TIME TO KNOW
TO BELIEVE IN YOU IS BLIND
YOU ONLY TELL US LIES

SO NOW THAT WE'VE AGREED
IT'S TIME TO END YOUR GREED
THE UNANIMOUS DECISION IS TO ROCK YOU

[Chorus]

YOU SHAKE A MILLION HANDS
MAKE A MILLION PLANS
THEN GIVE A PROMISE TO THE POOR
AND MILLIONS A WAR

WE TRIED TO BEG AND PLEAD
STILL YOU IGNORE OUR NEEDS
SO THE ONLY WAY TO TEACH YOU IS TO ROCK YOU

[Chorus]

WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE BABIES' EYES LONGING FROM HUNGER
IT MAKES ME WANNA CRY, CRY, CRY
THEN THE SITUATION OF OUR MOTHERS AND OUR BROTHERS,
WELL I KNOW, I KNOW
WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER

[Chorus]

TO THE NATIONS TELLING LIES TO THE BROTHERS DOWN THE BLOCK
TO THE POWER ON THE STREET
TO THE CRITICS ON MY JOCK
SHUT UP AND DANCE!!

[Chorus]

SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT RIGHT HERE AND SAY
SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT RIGHT HERE AND SAY

[Chorus]

    Rock you house
    You turn the fire, I'm taking over
    Rock you house
    You people get strong
    Rock you house
    You time to take the weight off our shoulder
    Rock you house
    You people move on

    [Verse 1]
    And yes it's time to grow
    Spent enough time to know
    To believe in you is blind
    You only tell us lies
    So now that we've agreed
    It's time to end your greed
    The unanimous decision is to rock you

    [Chorus]
    Rock you house
    You turn the fire, I'm taking over
    Rock you house
    You people get strong
    Rock you house
    You time to take the weight off our shoulder
    Rock you house
    You people move on (You people move on)

    [Verse 2]
    You shake a million hands
    Make a million plans
    And give a promise to the poor
    And millions to a war
    We tried to beg and plead
    Still you ignore our needs
    So the only way to teach you is to rock you

    [Chorus]
    Rock you house
    You turn the fire, I'm taking over
    Rock you house
    You people get strong (Come on people, sing!)
    Rock you house
    You time to take the weight off our shoulder
    Rock you house
    You people move on

    [Bridge 1]
    When I think about the babies eyes
    Longing from hunger
    I wanna cry, cry cry
    Then the situation of our mothers and our brothers
    Well, I know (I know)
    I know we can make it better

    [Bridge 2]
    So listen power boys
    Your contradictory ploy is the way to peace this war
    Kill that noise!
    This is our tragedy
    To bring you to your knees
    And in unity forever, we will rock you

    [Chorus]
    Rock you house
    You turn the fire, I'm taking over
    Rock you house
    You people get strong (Come on people, sing!)
    Rock you house
    You time to take the weight off our shoulder
    Rock you house
    You people move on
    Rock you house
    You turn the fire, I'm taking over
    Rock you house
    You people get strong
    Rock you house
    You time to take the weight off our shoulder
    Rock you house
    You people move on

  3. Gabriella Curti

    Che schifezza

  4. Leopard Prince

    Always liked the bass line of the song. Still cool after all these years.

  5. usman khan

    Well song

  6. Andrew Flood

    i luv this song !!!!

  7. Eric Flapjack Ashley

    Was really shocked this was never a video. The dancing in it would have been insane.

  8. Nikki White

    I absoutley adore her as a singer ! She rocked

  9. Seish's Mom

    This song played to warm up the crowd at my kids Dance Competitions in the 90's. I believe it was Headliners or Starpower.

  10. Dayee Vlogs

    Paula Abdul should be the president.

  11. ANDRES MONTES.

    To the power on the street,To the critics on my jock
    Shut up and dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Vulturep

    This was her attempt at a Rhythm Nation type of socially conscious song. I still jam to it all these years later.

  13. Almark

    hehe I hear the tape dullness at 1:04, such good memories tape :)

  14. utterbullspit

    One of my favorites by the fantastic Paula Abdul!

  15. sglg426

    Always loved this song, should have been a single !

  16. TaurusVSPluto

    Kat Deluna remade this song actually! :-)

  17. hhtwbps

    wrong lyrics it's " so listen power boys, your contradictory vote is the way to peace this war, (kill that noise, this is our sanity to bring you to your knees and with unity forever, we will rock you" Paula would never say fuck you in a song, she had more class than that.

  18. Monkeylexi911

  19. Roberto Demo

    YOU ROCK!!
