AC/DC Songtext: The Jack

she gave me the queen
she gave me the king
she was wheelin‘ and dealin‘
just doin‘ her thing
she was holdin‘ a pair
but I had to try
her deuce was wild
but my ace was high
but how was I to know that she’d been dealt with before
said she’d never had a full house
but I should have known
from the tattoo on her left leg
and the garter on her right
she’d have the card to bring me down
if she played it right
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack
she’s got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
she’s got the jack

poker face was her name
poker face was her nature
poker straight was her game
if she knew she could get ya
she played ‚em fast
and she played ‚em hard
she could close her eyes
and feel every card
but how was I to know that she’d been shuffled before
said she’d never had a royal flush
but I should have known
that all the cards were comin‘
from the bottom of the pack
and if I’d known what she was dealin‘ out
I’d have dealt it back
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, and who knows what else?
she’s got the jack, yeah, yeah
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack
she’s got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
she’s got the jack
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack
it was a bad deal,
she gave me the jack
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, can’t you tell she’s got the jack
(jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack)
(she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack)
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, you never know, but
she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, she’s got the jack, and it hurts
she’s got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
she’s got the jack
thank you, thank you, thank you people, thank you, thank you
I’m glad you like the show, yes, thank you very much folks.
goodnight
and god bless

AC/DC Songtext: Rock ‘N’ Roll Singer

my daddy was workin‘ nine to five
when my momma was havin‘ me
by the time I was half alive
they knew what I was gonna be
but I left school and grew my hair
they didn’t understand
they wanted me to be respected as
a doctor or a lawyer man
but I had other plans
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll star
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll
a rock ’n‘ roll star

well I worked real hard and bought myself
a rock ’n‘ roll guitar
I gotta be on top some day
I wanna be a star
I can see my name in lights
and I can see the queue
I got the devil in my blood
tellin‘ me what to do
and I’m all ears
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll star
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll
a rock ’n‘ roll star
I hear it pays well

well you can stick your nine to five livin‘
and your collar and your tie
you can stick your moral standards
‚cause it’s all a dirty lie
you can stick your golden handshake
and you can stick your silly rules
and all the other shit
that you teach to kids in school
‚cause I ain’t no fool
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll star
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll
a rock ’n‘ roll star
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll star
gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll singer
I’m gonna be a rock ’n‘ roll
a rock ’n‘ roll star
Yes, I Are

AC/DC Songtext: It’s A Long Way To The Top

AC/DC Songtext: It’s A Long Way To The Top

ridin‘ down the highway
goin‘ to a show
stop in all the byways
playin‘ rock ’n‘ roll
gettin‘ robbed
gettin‘ stoned
gettin‘ beat up
broken boned
gettin‘ had
gettin‘ took
I tell you folks it’s harder than it looks
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
if you think it’s easy doin‘ one night stands
try playin‘ in a rock roll band
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll

hotel motel
make you wanna cry
ladies do the hard sell
know the reason why
gettin‘ old
gettin‘ grey
gettin‘ ripped off
under-paid
gettin‘ sold
second hand
that’s how it goes playin‘ in a band
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
if you wanna be a star of stage and screen
look out it’s rough and mean
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n‘ roll
well it’s a long way
it’s a long way, you should’ve told me
it’s a long way
such a long way
