Rock and Roll Paradise


I pick up my glass and salute
The song, coming from
The radio, the radio, the radio plays great songs

Take a sip and start to think
Of the place where all dead poets and musicians go
The radio, the radio, the radio plays great songs

Listening to the sound I start to sing along
And before to long, I find
The contents of another bottle gone
The radio. The radio, the radio plays great songs

Rock and Roll Paradise, always plays something nice
Classic songs we liked to sing
Rock and Roll Paradise, helps me through the night
The memories come flooding in, the memories come flooding in

Where were you when they sang Hey Jude
Jesus of Suburbia, or Blue Suede Shoes
Walking On the Moon
Where were you when One was two
Born in the USA and the Dock of the Bay
Imagine and Peggy Sue

If you put your ear to the wind
You can hear a familiar voice sing
And if you listen carefully, you can pick out the melody
To a new song

Becoming one with the sound I start to sing along
And before to long, I find
The contents of another bottle gone
The radio. The radio, the radio plays great songs

I pick up my glass and salute
The song, coming from
The radio, the radio, the radio plays great songs

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
