Chorus- repeat @SONG: ROCKARIA!
D Bm F♯m A7JDust got back from the downtown palais Where the music was so sweet It knocked me right back in the alley I'm rG7eady, yea, yea, yea, I'm reDady, Wo, wo, wo, I'm reA7ady And I'm reBmally gonna rF♯mock tonEmight. A7 Sweet little lady sings like a songbird And she sings the opera like you ain't never heard, But she ain't ready, No, no, no, she ain't ready No, no, no, she ain't ready, And she ain't gonna rock & roll SEmhe's sweet on WaAgner, IEm think she'd die for BeethoAven, She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune, And Verdi's always creeping from her room.
D Bm F♯m A7Come on I'll show you how to sing the blues Now baby, come on over you got nothin' to lose, Are you ready, hey, hey, hey are you ready Ooh, ooh, ooh, are you ready I wanna show you how to rock and roll. Now listen here baby she, said to me Just, meet me at the opera house at a quarter to three, 'Cos I'm ready, yea, yea, yea, I'm ready, Woo, hoo, hoo, I'm ready, I'm gonna show you how to sing the blues. FDar, far aBmway the F♯mmusic is playing. A7 Well we were reeDlin' and a rockin' all thEm7rougGh the night, Yea we were rockin' at the opera house until the break of light, And the orchestra were playin' all Chuck Berry's greatest tunes. And the singers in the chorus all got off on singing blues, And as the night grew older everybody was as one, The people on the streets came runnin' in to join in song Just to hear the opera singer singin' rock & roll so pure, I thought I saw the mayor there but I wasn't really sure, D Bm F♯m A7 DDDDDDDDD.8-) But it's alright. @SONG: MISSION (A World Record) FBmor many days we travelled from a distant place and time, To reach a pF♯mlace they call the planet Earth, There was to Gbe a celebrF♯mation, On the mBmission of the sAacAred hGeart. The planet Earth from way up there is beautiful and blue And floating softly through a rainbow, But when you touch down things look different here, At the mission of the sacred heart.

E♭7 D7 When all the stars above E♭7 D7 Rain icy fingers down on A7me On a dirty worn-out sidewalk, sits a mother with a baby, In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow And someone's singing from a window In the mission of the sacred heart.
Chorus- repeat There's a building on a corner, in a city, in a land, On a place they call the planet Earth, My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by, From the mission of the sacred heart.

D A G GADDo ya do ya wAant my lGove G A Do ya do ya want my face Do ya do ya want my mind Do ya do ya want my love Well I, heard the crowd singin' out of tune, As they, sat and sang Auld Lang Syne by the light of the moon I heard the preachers bangin' on the drums, And I heard the police playin' with their guns But I never heard nothin' like you. DIn the country where the sAky touches down On the fGsus4ield, she lay her down Gto rest In the mDorning sun, Fd Gd They come a'runnin' just to get a look, just to Feel to touch her long black hair they don't give a damn
