Lyrics below


“It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll)”

Ridin’ down the highway
Goin’ to a show
Stoppin’ on the byways
Playin’ rock ‘n’ roll

Gettin’ robbed, gettin’ stoned
Gettin’ beat up, broken boned
Getting had, getting took
I tell you folks, it’s harder than it looks

It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll
It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll
If you think it’s easy doing one night stands
Try playing in a rock-roll band
It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll

Hotel, motel
Make you want to cry
Ladies do the hard sell
Know the reason why

Gettin’ old, gettin’ gray
Gettin’ ripped off, underpaid
Gettin’ sold, second-hand
That’s how it goes, playin’ in a band

It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll
It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out, it’s rough and mean
It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll
It’s a long way to the top, if you want to rock ‘n’ roll

Well, it’s a long way
Oh, it’s a long way
(You should have told me)
It’s a long way
Such a long way
