Cliff Richard - Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music Lyrics




People say to me that Jesus and rock and roll can never go together
But I think they're wrong, they're wrong, they're wrong!
Listen to my song, my song, my song!
Why should the devil have all the good music?
Why should the devil have all the good music?
One, two
One, two, three!

I want the people to know that he saved my soul
But I still like to listen to the radio
They say rock'n'roll is wrong, we'll give you one more chance
I said: I feel so good I gotta get up and dance!

I know what's right, I know what's wrong, and I don't confuse it!
All I'm really trying to say is:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I feel good every day
'Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!

They say to cut my hair, they're driving me insane
I'm, growing it out long to make room for my brain!
Sometimes people don't understand:
What's a good boy doing in a rock'n'roll band?

There's nothing wrong with playing a blues lick
Well, if you got a reason, tell me to my face:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
There's nothing wrong with what he plays
'Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!

Now I ain't knocking the hymns
Just give me a song that has a beat!
No, I ain't knocking the hymns
Give me a song that moves my feet!

Rock on!

Jesus told the truth, Jesus showed the way
One more thing I'd like to say:
They nailed him to the cross and they laid him in the ground
They should've known, you can't keep a good man down!
I feel good every day, and I refuse to lose it
All I wanna know from all of you is:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I've been filled, feel okay
'Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues...
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues...
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!
Yeah!

Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!
Yeah!

Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!

And he's gonna keep on rolling them, yes, he is...

    the devil's music is garbage. Better to get into the bible and follow Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ saves from hell fire for eternity.

  12. magda lena

    Awesome I love the song I am sure the Lord does too !!! <3<3

  13. nozydog

    @all counties.... more like it’s the world we live in where accusations and gossip are rife, and sadly most people believe everything they hear!! Someone was bound to make allegations against Cliff eventually... when you point the finger remember, there are three more fingers pointing back at you!!

  14. Irene Kent

    Wonderful so rare

  15. Matt Nicholson

    Just fabulous, and with my favourite backing band too.

  19. Fiona Caldarevic Music

    Wow never seen this one before! How awesome! Such great quality picture and sound, a real treat. I wish Cliff’s vocal was mixed a bit louder though.

  20. Jon Gowan

    Amazing.cliff.you can get the rock,rolling

  21. Alan Fox

    Basically saying you can be a Christian and the possibility of still like rock and roll music at the same time.

  22. Becca May

    His best band and oh how I love this cliff era! Why he got rid of these guys I never understood! I'm not religious but a great song!

  23. bwj2155

    LOVE this performance!!!!

  24. Violingirl79

    Brilliant! I love this song, and this version is fantastic 👍🏻

  25. TI Ted

    Bob Dylan & Cliff Richard are two independents in a sea of rock conformity: two massive risk takers and both of them are turning it all out as good as ever. One of them looks good 'n old, and the other is Cliff: love and respect to both.

  26. Tiscean L

    This is fantastic.
    How great to see that line up of musicians again.
    Cliff has performed a wealth of music...keep it coming, please

  32. Marion Wijlemans

    Always LOVED this song but I've never seen this video before. It's great!

  33. Christiane Mahy

    I think many christians would come back to churches if gospels were sung with so much heart as Cliff did.

  34. Hank Marvin Fan

    How wonderful to see Cliff with these musicians again. George Ford (bass), Cliff Hall (piano), Graham Jarvis (drums), Mart Jenner and Terry Britten (guitar), and Tony Rivers/John Perry/Stu Calver (vocals). I would have loved to have been at that concert.

    timcooper5

    Donna Plasky Such a shame that George, Graham, Stu & Mart are no longer with us. Great clip with a great band.
