lyrics

The shopkeeper closed up
A town turned it's nose up
He never cried when his mother died, they say

Began with a rumour
And spread like a tumour
His choice of song, it gave the game away

It's only rock ˜n' roll, it's never gonna change the world
And I'm tired of this town
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries
I look around at the madness of crowds

A shopkeeper moved on,
The high street improved on
But fingers point, and heads begin to nod
A town grows suspicious, the gossip malicious,
For no-one here's above the law of God.

It's only kiss ˜n' tell,
I hear the Chinese whisper well,
But I'm tired of this town,
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries,
I look around at the madness...

I believe you'd like for me to be the same as you
'Cause don't you know that life would be so easy
But you see I don't believe the things they say to me
To me it's just madness gone mad

The story just plays on, McCarthy to Salem,
You're Communist or just a witch by day.
Now let's keep a vigil and watch each individual,
For signs that they may deviate or stray

It's only rock 'n' roll, it's never gonna change the world
And I'm tired of this town.
Another hero dies, the cheers are drowning out the cries,
I look around at the madness of crowds.
