Lyrics

thirty thousand feet, travelling all alone
my face is somewhat buried in a book of poems
oh mama, i'm so far from home
you know i love to sing my ballad
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll

they promised me a [?] and a pot of gold
they placed me in a limo, and i signed away my soul
oh mama, it's the dumbest story ever told
you know i love to sing my ballads
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll

now it's velvet bands, one night stands, and [?] up in a row
fancy meals, high class deals, i'm the one they want to know
they say it's the only way to go
oh mama, i cannot take much more
you know i love to sing my ballads
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll

well i think i'm gonna be just like a rolling stone
rolling, rolling, rolling, from now on
oh mama, my head just turned to solid gold
you know i love to sing my ballad
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll

you know i love to sing my ballad
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll
you know i love to sing my ballad
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll
you know i love to sing my ballad
but they only wanna hear me rock and roll
