Spend A Rockin

Spend A Rockin' Dime

Big Bad Shakin'

(S. Heinze - Big Bad Shakin', RAUCOUS RAUCD150, 2004)

If you leave your girl alone and forget about her moan
You spend a rockin' dime
If you forgot to pay your rent and you're living in a tent
You've spent a rockin' dime
Then I can tell you are one of my peers
Come along and join in for a few beers
Forget about tomorrow it's today and
We gonna spend a rockin' dime

If you can't afford a car, but you're a frequent in the bar
You spenda rockin' dime
If you hate biology but Big Bad Shakin' set you free
You spend a rockin' dime
So let's get dressed and go out tonight
We're gonna have a ball 'til broad daylight
Forget about tomorrow it's today and
We gonna spend a rockin' dime

A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
Oh-well-a uh-uh-uh and-a ah-ah-ah
A-well-a hop hop hop and-a bop bop bop
Let's spend a rockin' dime

Solo Piano

A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
Oh-well-a uh-uh-uh and-a ah-ah-ah
A-well-a hop hop hop and-a bop bop bop
Let's spend a rockin' dime

Solo Guitar

If you have holes in your shoes, but you got100 tattoos
You've spent a rockin' dime
If your mum looks like your dad, but she owns a baseball bat:spend...
Spend a rockin' dime!
And you don't care what they all do
'cos you're the one who knows what's good for you
Forget about tomorrow it's today and
We gonna spend a rockin' dime

A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
Oh-well-a uh-uh-uh and-a ah-ah-ah
A-well-a hop hop hop and-a bop bop bop
Let's spend a rockin' dime
A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
A-well-a hop hop hop and a-bop bop bop
You spend a rockin' dime
Oh-well-a uh-uh-uh and-a ah-ah-ah
A-well-a hop hop hop and-a bop bop bop
Let's spend a rockin' dime
