We’re Gonna Rock (Poetry)

“We’re Gonna Rock” is a lyrical poem about starting a rock and roll band that strives to be completely original while still being successful.

We are gonna rock 
We are gonna roll
We have got the sound
And we’ve got the soul
We’ll come right out here
And sing how we feel
We are gonna rock
And we’re gonna roll! 

Yeah, keepin’ it real!
We’re not gonna steal
From the pop culture
Ain’t falling victim
To failure’s vulture
We’ve got our own way
Starting a new day

Revving it up, yeah
Revolution’s the 
Solution to fight 
This disillusion
All we got is some 
Old beat up guitars
Playing at the bars

They say if we made 
A few changes here
They’d take us so far
But we just can’t change
And we just don’t care
We are who we are

Someday our albums
Will stock up the shelves
In the record stores
But we’re no fame or
Petty fortune whores
We just love to play 
And be who we are
