With my darling dimestore thief
In the war of independence
Rock n' roll rang sweet as victory
Under neon signs a girl was in bloom
And a woman was fading in a suburban room
I said, "Take me to the dance",
"Do you want to dance?"
"I love to dance"
And I told him, "They don't take chances"
And they seem so removed from romance baby
They've been broken in churches and schools
And molded to middle class circumstance
We were rolling, rolling, rock n' rolling
The dance halls and cafes
Feel so wild you could break somebody's heart
Doing the latest dance craze
Gail and Louise
In those push-up brassieres
Tight dresses and rhinestone rings
Drinking up the man's beer
Young love was kissing under bridges
Kissing in cars, kissing in cafes
Walking down Main Street
"Amour, mama, not cheap display"
And we were rolling, rolling, rock n' rolling
Downtown in the pinball arcade
With his head full of pool hall pitches
And songs from the hit parade
