Rock On
David Essex Lyrics


Hey, kid, rock and roll
Rock on, ooh my soul
Hey, kids, you boogey, too, did ya?

Hey shout, summertime blues
Jump up and down in my blue suede shoes
Hey, did you rock and roll, rock on

And where do we go from here?
Which is a way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean
(James Dean)

And where do we go from here?
Which is a way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean
(Jimmy Dean)

Rock on
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on
Rock on (hey, kid, rock and roll)
Rock on

Patient: I’m addicted to watching the film Grease.


Psychiatrist: Tell me more, tell me more.

Patient: I make my girlfriend watch it with me every day.

Psychiatrist: Does she put up a fight?

Patient: Sometimes, yeah.

Psychiatrist: Well, that’s women for you... summer lovin’, some aren’t.

Patient: I guess?

Psychiatrist: ... are you not clocking the references I’m doing?

Patient: Oh... no. Maybe it’s not as bad as I thought.



Rob Jones

David's homage to the late great Billy Fury.


Hard to believe this track was a major hit in1973, it is very avant-garde in its' approach.
1973 also saw songs like "Pyjamarama" and "Life On Mars" placed highly in the charts.
The same goes for The Who and The Rolling Stones with "5.15" and "Angie".


Back then, it was quality over quantity.

Suddenly wanted to hear this song - don't think I've heard it in about 20 years. I've listened to it 5 times in a row, so far.

fieldagent59 is in the forest

whoever produced and or engineered this in the 70's was a genius and light years ahead of their time....... might be the best sounding bass track of all time....

pluto 4D

not light years ahead at all but very much part of that type experimental innovative sounds from around the late 60's and early 70's

@HighwayRamos Walk on the Wild Side has always had a special place in my heart.

The bass player, Herbie Flowers and David apparently tracked this take as a duo while Jeff Wayne was at lunch. Herbie also played bass on Lou Reid's "Walk on the Wild Side" and many other hits of the 70's.
