David Bowie - Rock 'N Roll With Me Lyrics




You always were the one that knew
They sold us for the likes of you
I always wanted new surroundings
A room to rent while the lizards lay crying in the heat
Trying to remember who to meet

I would take a foxy kind of stand
While tens of thousands found me in demand

[CHORUS]
When you rock 'n' roll with me
No one else I'd rather be
Nobody here can do it for me
I'm in tears again
When you rock 'n' roll with me

Gentle hearts are counted down
The queue is out of sight and out of sounds
Me, I'm out of breath, but not quite doubting
I've found a door which lets me out!

[CHORUS (x3)]

  7. Scarlett Cook

    I don't know if it's just the download but this remastered version takes the vocal down. Whole thing is't as sharp. I have the cd but my stereo is freakin so I can't check.

    GO BIDEN

    Scarlett Cook maybe your stereo is wrong ?

    A lot of people hate this 2016 remaster & think it sounds dull, muddy, & mid-rangey. I'm in that camp. I prefer the 1999 remaster, but the trade off with that one is it's EQ'd a little too bright. It's hard to crank it on a good system without your ears bleeding. I just listen to it at a lower volume. Unless you own the very expensive original RCA discs, Bowie's entire early catalog is a crap shoot. They're all over the map when it comes to sound quality & remastering.

    Kurtis Ploehn

    @rubber chicken I agree. My entire early Bowie collection was purchased while I was in college. I graduated in '78. Nothing like that heavy old vinyl!

    You always were the one that knew
    They sold us for the likes of you
    I always wanted new surroundings
    A room to rent while the lizards lay crying in the heat
    Trying to remember who to meet
    I would take a foxy kind of stand
    While tens of thousands found me in demand
    When you rock and roll with me
    No one else I'd rather be
    Nobody here can do it for me
    I'm in tears again
    When you rock and roll with me
    Gentle hearts are counted down
    The queue is out of sight and out of sounds
    Me, I'm out of breath, but not quite doubting
    I've found a door which lets me out
    When you rock and roll with me
    No one else I'd rather be
    Nobody down here can do it for me
    I'm in tears again
    When you rock and roll with me
    Oh, when you rock and roll with me
    There's no one else I'd rather be
    Nobody down here can do it for me
    When you rock and roll with me
    When you rock and roll, rock and roll with me
    No one else I'd rather be
    Nobody down here can do it for me
    I'm in tears, I'm in tears
    When you rock and roll with me

    Great backing vocals, guitar, sax, and organ.

    Seth Ott

    It beautifully mixes glam rock and soul👌

    1984 is a really great novel. This album is a wonderful companion to the book.

    It speaks of the same genocide that Lennon refers to when he says he is the Walrus.
