JERRY LEE LEWIS lyrics - The Return Of Rock

Herman The Hermit

Original and similar lyrics
High on the mountain A man sat a-countin' All the rocks he had found the day He lived all alone 'cause the Doggone lone-gettin'-rocks was all he craved They said he was lazy and just too crazy To face the world outside But they didn't know all the rocks were gold And Herman was the richest little man around Herman the hermit Has to get the permit To get his long hairs cut Pretty girls scared him Never went near him 'til one day on a mountain high Along came a creature with a lot of pretty pictures And made old Herman kisses rocks goodbye She carried him to town just to show him around And dressed him in the latest craze While he clipped his hair, You know, she slipped downstairs And had them rocks appraised Now she was told they were solid gold The wheels started spinning around The morning paper read: "Ole Herman dropped dead" And now she's the richest little woman in town. Herman the hermit Has to get the permit To get his long hairs cut Pretty girls scared him Never went near him 'til one day on a mountain high Along came a creature with a lot of pretty pictures And made old Herman kisses rocks goodbye

Get My Rocks Off

Dr. Hook the Medicine Show "Dr. Hook the Medicine Show Revisited"
(Shel Silverstein) Some men need some killer weed, some men need cocaine Some men need some cactus juice, to purify the brain Some men need two women, some need alcohol Everybody needs a little something, but Lord I need it all To get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill I may do you one time, and I may do you more I may turn you into something, that you ain't ready for I might want your body, and I might want your bread I might want your momma to come visit me instead And get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill Sometimes I dream of chicks, to bring me ever lasting joys Sometimes I dream of animals, sometimes I dream of boys Sometimes I kill the living, sometimes I raise the dead Sometimes I say just screw it all, and crawl back into bed And get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill

What Do Pretty Girls Do?

Kirsty MacColl "Kite"
(Kirsty MacColl/Pete Glenister) She was a party girl, stayed up til the small hours Now she's embarrassing and everybody laughs At the girl with the face that could drive her baby wild Now wasn't she the child with everything? You should have seen her with her head held high Now what do pretty girls do? She used to be the apple of his eye Now what do pretty girls do? She went through such a lot And never even learned That even pretty girls can get their fingers burned She's got a cabin in a town upon the border She gets in trouble with the local law and order Everybody's happy when she isn't at the door She sends out invitations to everyone They don't come (And the phone ain't ringing for her now) You should have seen her with her head held high Now what do pretty girls do? She used to be the same as me or you Now what do pretty girls do? Well they get older just like everybody else She never thought she'd have to take care of herself You should have seen her with her head held high Now what do pretty girls do? She used to be the apple of his eye Now what do pretty girls do? Collecting all the records and the posters Of the people that she knew And they knew That she'd get older just like everybody else She never thought she'd have to take care of herself

Get My Rocks Off

Marilyn Manson "Holy Wood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death)"
Some men need some killer weed, some men need cocaine Some men need some cactus juice, to purify the brain Some men need two women, some need alcohol Everybody needs a little something, but Lord I need it all To get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill I may do you one time, and I may do you more I may turn you into something, that you ain't ready for I might want your body, and I might want your bread I might want your momma to come visit me instead And get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill Sometimes I dream of chicks, to bring me ever lasting joys Sometimes I dream of animals, sometimes I dream of boys Sometimes I kill the living, sometimes I raise the dead Sometimes I say just screw it all, and crawl back into bed And get my rocks off, get my rocks off Get my rocks off the mountain, and roll 'em on down the hill

Rocky Mountain High

JOHN DENVER "Rocky Mountain High"
He was born in the summer of his 27th year, coming home to a place he'd never been before. He left yesterday behind him you might say he was born again, might say he found a key for every door. When he first came to the mountains His life was far away on the road and hanging by a song. But the strings already broken and he doesn't really care, it keeps changin' fast, and it don't last for long. It's a Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullabye. Rocky Mountain High, ...in Colorado.... Rocky Mountain High. He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below, saw everything as far as you can see. And they say that he got crazy once and that he tried to touch the sun, and he lost a friend, but kept the memory. Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forest and the stream, seeking grace in every step he takes, his sight is turned inside himself, to try and understand, the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake. And the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply. Rocky Mountain High, ....in Colorado.... Rocky Mountain High. Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still knows some fear, of the simple things he can not comprehend. Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more. More people, more scars upon the land. It's the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an Eagle fly Rocky mountain high It's the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky. Friend around the camp fire and everybody's high.... Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High.
