Rainbow - Power Lyrics




Everybody's sayin' that the times are gettin' rough
You gotta stay loose baby and you gotta be tough... oh
I get knocked down... get right back up again
Cause I never give up and I never give in...
Oh - so strong...
Got the power when I turn it on
Yeah - I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will
I got the... power
I got the power
I feel the power...
And don't forget it

More some, break some ain't no big surprise
They're gonna wheel ya, deal ya, tell ya all the lies... (realize)
But I'm a hot shot, shoot em down let em be (that's me)
Cause I got nothin' for nothin' and nothin's ever free... no
Oh - so strong
All I gotta do is turn it on
Yeah - I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will
I got the power
Oh, I got the power
I can feel the power
I got the power
Yeah yeah yeah... turn it on

I can take anything that gets in my way
I don't worry 'bout tomorrow I just live for today...
Oh - so strong
Got the feeling when I turn it on
Yeah - I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will
I got the power
I can feel the power power
I can feel the power...
Turn it on...
Power (can you feel it)
Power
(You can turn it on, turn it on, switch it on behind)
(Super charged... I can feel the power)

  2. silky johnson

    Such a killer riff by Richie Blackmore!

  3. Art Roosa

    Always been a favorite, totally rock out. Now I listen and find a new meaning in the lyrics. I am in a 12 step program. Higher Power baby 👍

    stellastarr69

    Good for you Art! I just started drinking again after 13 years and 7 months. Bad decision. Keep it up buddy!

  4. Amanda Whitehead

    Seems like everyone has forgotten about all the rock and roll 80"s bands they rock

  5. MichaelD8393

    Only heard this song for the first time today on the radio, but it was love at first listen ❤️ 👂

  6. Sequentially Compact

    This song is a ridiculously good workout tune.

  7. Kim Larsson

    This sounds just like early KISS. Singer does a pretty mean Paul Stanley impersonation 🙂

  8. Cody Wilson

    I don't care what anyone says, I like this era of Rainbow. Badass, catchy, 80's power rock. It may not necessarily be as impressive as the Dio era but it sure is fun music!

  9. Vanei Pontes

  14. Mark Laechel

    Great song to crank up with the top down if you want Millenials to stare at you in traffic. Yup, this is what real music sounds like kiddies.

    Eric Alexander

    LOVE IT!

  15. Latka Gravas

    "Do you close your eyes....."

  16. Chris

    I wish they would digitally remaster this song ..I can't seem to play it loud enough in its original recording

    Fawk Yuu

    I've always thought the same thing for years..I want it loud enough to melt my eardrums dammit😎

  17. Rich Jones

    Cops always pulled me over for playing this too loud. :) Mirrors shaking... that's a bit loud. I got to be good friends with the cops. hehe

  18. Cnarlie Benefield

    Eric Alexander

    Dude, That's awesome. We all should listen to this song every day!

  22. justin thyme

    This song sounds like it's recorded in mono.

  23. Lee Marsh

    Class beat 2 the song it's a brill song 2 train 2

  24. David Salopek

    Song gives me energy

  25. Ferdinand Cesarano

    I love Rondinelli's drumming on this. It's a rare case of the double bass being used tastefully, for just a single measure to kick into the chorus.

    Jason Rogers

    Totally agree! I saw this tour and the one after it and the guy is an amazing drummer but as usual Ritchie Blackmore being Ritchie Blackmore let him get away.

    Brian Lobo

    Excellent hi hat dynamics also by Bobby!

    jernt dood

  33. demoninvader

    this riff sounds like the riff of rainbow's earlier song "do you close your eyes". same with "la connection" sounding like "tite squeeze" and "death alley driver" and "kill the king". blackmore recycled some riffs.

    John Musick

    It's called a signature.

    Cunninglinguist

    You tell him .

    rowdydemon

    cuninglinguist. Fantastic monacker !

    QuarrellaDeVil

    Ritchie's pretty glib about some of his borrowings -- Ricky Nelson's "Summertime" for "Black Night" and Gershwin's "Fascinatin' Rhythm" for "Burn" are two examples -- so he'd probably play along rather than pour his beer on you if you asked him about it. :-) Don't forget "Stranded" showing up in "Anya" just a few years later.

  34. i YoungMan

    nothing like 80's rock n roll.

  35. nanook5875

    my dad was playing this song I loved it,,, that's me!

  36. 88 Keys Sports Bar with Dueling Pianos

    I still have this record on wax.

  37. CinemaBiohazard

    LOVE THIS SONG.

  38. kimberly longman

    POWER? Really? Suck my.......KISS

    Dorothy Voshell

    No doubt😙

    Dorothy Voshell

    No doubt!!!! MMMWAH

  39. Goku Son

    Woooooo!!

  40. Stephen Smith

    Still sounds great today!

  41. Chas Killcode

    Get it on get it tonight!

    My band KILLCODE plays this song through the Front of House before we hit the stage....always gets me going!

  42. JTA 1973

    I always thought this song had kind of a Queen vibe to it.

    Strapping Young Lad

    Hammer To Fall

    mherring27

    I always felt it was more of a KISS vibe...I can see Paul Stanley singing this...(JLT is my cousin)

    Eric Alexander

    @Strapping Young Lad EXACTLY Hammer To Fall is what I would have said

  43. Carriman

    ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ POWER !!!!!!!!!!

  44. Joey Frederick

    Great song to get the adrenaline flowing! Wonder what it would sound like if Kiss covered it...

    Joey Frederick

    Maybe...but--no disrespect to Joe Lynn Turner--ya gotta admit this is right in Paul Stanley's wheelhouse...

    Louie Caporusso Jr

    Joey Frederick i do agree and can hear stanley in the vocal mix yes.

    Jerry Lehti

    no kiss

    John S Rous

    Joey Frederick it is easy to hear a Kiss version of this tune. Rainbow is the better band

    Jimmy Running Dog

    This IS very Paul Stanley like in the vocals, good call there.

  45. nik

  47. skydog757

    This tune never fails to crank me up.  Our local bar band used to play this and tear the roof off the place.
