MC5 - Ramblin' Rose Lyrics

Brothers and sisters, I want to see a sea of hands out there
Let me see a sea of hands
I want everyone to kick up some noise
I want to hear some revolution out there, brothers
I want to hear a little revolution
Brothers and sisters, the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are going to be the problem or whether you are going to be the solution
(That's right)
You must choose brothers, you must choose
It takes five seconds, five seconds of decision, five seconds to realize your purpose here on the planet
It takes five seconds to realize that it's time to move, it's time to get down with it
Brothers, it's time to testify and I want to know, are you ready to testify?
Are you ready?
I give you a testimonial, the MC5

Love is like a ramblin' rose
The more you feed it, the more it grows
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Come on home

Ramblin' rose is such a ball
Diamond rings and a Cadillac car
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Come on home

Ramblin' rose, ramblin' around
Ramblin' rose, I'm gonna put you down
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Come on home

Love is like a ramblin' rose
The more you feed it, the more it grows
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Come on home

I need a ramblin' rose
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
I need a ramblin' rose
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Ramblin' rose, ramblin' rose
Yeah, woo

Thank you, thank you, thank you

    Such a breath of fresh air this comments section is.
    Real and rich comments, the “who still listening in ####” brainless horde hasn’t got to it 🙌🏻

  28. loveistruth 5*7*

    I always thought they sucked and I still do. Especially with all the great music that came out of the 60s and 70s

  29. David Dave

    Too chuck berry to beat the Stooges..... close second

  36. Jorge García Robles

    Too LZ....

  37. Robert bishop

    Politically these guys,were always way to liberal for me. Man on stage they tore it up. A great band with a very strong and unique legacy. Should be in the R&R HOF. Kick out the jams baby.

  38. Gefletschtes Gebiß

    I expected a covered song from Nat King Cole 🙉

  39. Scot Scotland

    All bands should be given narcotics before recording or playing live.

  40. Iwan Bottos

    MC5 is dat wat ,Live nog wel. Ga me niet vertellen dat Kick out the jams er op voorkomt .. Dit is echt garage avant la lettre .Een robleem, dit is niet echt hun beste nummer
    Maar toch .MC5
