LYRICS

"Mama Don't Like It"

Mama set me rock in the cradle
But I learned to roll alone
My Papa said "son, gonna have some fun
'Cause when you're older you'll be on your own"

It seems so long since you heard my song
Gonna pick up my guitar and play
Well I felt so bad when I had to leave you
I knew I'm coming back some day

Mama don't like it
Mama don't like it
Mama don't like
When I rock n roll

Eat a lot of plates in Memphis
Had a good time down there
Spent a lot of time in New Orleans
Had another night to share

Well my mama set me rock in the cradle
But I learned to roll alone
My papa said "son, gonna get some fun
When you're older you'll be on your own"

Mama don't like it
Mama don't like it
Mama don't like
When I rock n roll
When I rock n roll
When I rock n roll

Mama don't like it
Mama don't like it
Mama don't like it

Mama don't like it
Mama don't like it
Mama don't like
When I'm rocking
When I'm rocking
When I rock n roll



 

"Better Burn Out"

 

One foot is on the platform

The other's on the train

Gonna leave this town tomorrow

It's always been the same

I've watched this sinking level

It was a touch too much

I thought I'd stay forever

And play this game of love

Hey! I've got something to say

Hey! I'm gonna leave you this way

Hey! It's better to burn out than to fade away

One foot is on the platform

The other's on the train

Gonna leave this town tomorrow

It's always been the same

I've watched this sinking level

It was a touch too much

I thought I'd stay forever

To play this game of love

Hey! I've got something to say

Hey! I'm gonna leave you this way

Hey! You better burn out than fade away

Hey! I've got something to say

Hey! I'm gonna leave you this way

Hey! You better burn out than fade away

Hey! I gotta something to say

Hey! I'm gonna leave you this way

Hey! You better burn out than fade away

Hey! I've got something to say

I'm gonna leave you this way

You better burn out, better burn out

Better burn out than fade away
