Lyrics I Love Rock and Roll Joan Jett & the Blackhearts:
I saw him dancing there by the record machine
I knew he must have been about 17
The beat was going strong,
Playing my favorite song
I could tell it wouldn’t be long
‘Till he was with me (Yeah with me !)
I could tell it wouldn’t be long
‘Till he was with me
(Yeah with me!), singing

I love rock and roll !
So put another dime in the jukebox baby !
I love rock and roll !
So come and take your time and dance with me…

He smiled so I got up and asked for his name
But that don’t matter, he said, ’cause it’s all the same
Said can I take you home,
Where we can be alone ?
And next we’re moving on
And he was with me !
(Yeah me !)
Next we’re moving on,
He was with me! (Yeah me !), singing

I love rock and roll !
So put another dime in the jukebox baby !
I love rock and roll !
So come and take your time and dance with me !

Said can I take you home,
Where we can be alone ?
And next we’re movin’ on,
And he was with me
(Yeah me !)
And we’ll be movin’ on
And singing that same old song…
(Yeah with me !) .singing

I love rock and roll !
So put another dime in the jukebox baby !
I love rock and roll !
So come and take your time and dance with me …

    I knew about Joan Jett and Britney Spears. But about “The Arrows” … it was a big surprise! )
    Btw – great guitar! Is it Gibson SG? I have violet Fender, but I dream about Gibson… So is it SG? Did you have other kinds of guitars? What’s better? Good luck and thank’s.

      Yes, it’s Gibson SG.
      Before this guitar I had Fender Stratocaster. Very good guitar for rock bun not for hard-rock and metal. For heavy music you need to have a heavy guitar with humbuckers.
