Now listen up
just sit right down
hold your heads up
and gather around
I'm gonna tell you a story
that's a-hundred percent true
about why God made us
drums, guitars, and you

see that old time music was getting old
and that new stuff
wasn't very bold
He said take an acoustic
give it an electric sound
then crank up the volume
when the sun goes down

Just play the rock
what we wanna hear
play the rock
fill our ear
play the rock
hard and loud
play the rock
and just watch the crowd

well some folks listened
but all the folks talked
parents didn't like
this thing called rock

It started a revolution
the dawning of a new age
where ya tune up the music
and tear down the stage
and God said again

Just play the rock
what we wanna hear
play the rock
fill our ear
play the rock
hard and loud
play the rock
and just watch the crowd
Guitar solo)

well through the first three decades
it got harder and louder
but the rockers
got braver and prouder

heavy metal
hard rock
and of course hair bands
lit up the stage
and lit up the land
and God spoke once again
he said

Just play the rock
what we wanna hear
play the rock
fill our ear
play the rock
hard and loud
play the rock
and just watch the crowd
yeah__ just play the rock
and watch the crowd
