Lyrics

I got locked with a coupla jerks in a
Rock 'n' roll toilet
In came Jah to perform his works in the
Rock 'n' roll toilet

I got wedged with a coupla drones in a  [1]
Rock 'n' roll toilet
With eggs as smooth as polished stones in the
Rock 'n' roll toilet

Rock 'n' roll toilet's my alibi, my lullaby, my sacrify [2]
Rock 'n' roll toilet's my pair of boots, my only chutes, my
Open wounds, yeah

I got wedged with a couple of dudes in a
Rock 'n' roll toilet
I'd rather just sit and imagine my food in a
Rock 'n' roll toilet

Look at the beautiful patterns that form on the wall
Stick out your finger to trace them just look at them all
Look at the beautiful patterns that form on the wall
Stick out your finger to trace them just look at them all

Look at them all (look at them all)
Yeah, look at them all (look at them all)

Oooow, there's no truth in a telephone booth or a
Rock 'n' roll toilet
There's no way in a, no decay in a
Rock 'n' roll toilet

[3]

Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll toilet
Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll toilet
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll toilet
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll (Rock 'n' roll)
Rock 'n' roll toilet

Yeah

[1] I got wedged with a coupla clones in a

[2] Rock 'n' roll toilet's my carving knife, my real life, my real wife

[3] I'd rather die than get an honest job, I'm gonna rock 'n' roll till the toilet clog
