Chinese rocks
The Heartbreakers Lyrics


Somebody called me on the phone
They said, "Hey, is Dee Dee home?
Do you wanna take a walk? You wanna go cop?
You wanna go get some Chinese Rocks?

I'm living on a Chinese Rock
All my best things are in hock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock
Everything is in the pawn shop, it is

The plaster's falling off the wall
My girlfriend's crying in the shower stall
It's hot as a bitch, I shoulda been rich
Now, I'm just digging a Chinese ditch

I'm living on a Chinese Rock
All my best things are in hock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock
Everything is in the pawn shop, it is

Ooh, aah, ooh, aah

The plaster's falling off the wall
My girlfriend's crying in the shower stall
It's hot as a bitch, I shoulda been rich
Now, I'm just digging a Chinese ditch

I'm living on a Chinese Rock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock

I'm living on a Chinese Rock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock
I'm living on a Chinese Rock

Gentlemen...gentlemen. Both versions are great. Stop the hate, put the pitch forks down, and rock out!

Lemmy Konijn

I always thought they wrote it togheter and they recorded their own version as a kind of way to show they are connected

Don't forget the early version of when Richard Hell was in the band

Jordan Masters

They had a bet over who could write a better song about smack before both recording it. Both knew each other personally extremely well

Jolly Munchkin

so they both claim to have wrote it, I thought it doesn't matter.... it's a big funny joke

La Casa Del Gato

In my own opinion: Sid, this one and the Ramones. Sid sounds raw and hateful. The ad-libbed lyrics are the best. It sounds like someone recorded it at a party with a jambox. This one has the best tempo and the lyrics are clear. The Ramones version is good but sounds too fast. A pretty cool song all around. A wonder that some new band hasn't covered it.

I'm in love with the Ramones, is my favourite band, but I love the Heartbreakers version. But also the Ramone's version. Are two big groups of punk, definitely.
