ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SHOES  (Colon)  © Roustasongs/ASCAP 2012

Word getting ‘round
She been hittin’ the town
The description fits her like a glove
I get kind of green
If you know what I mean
When you mess with the one that I love
And I wonder, yeah
If she’s the one they’re all speaking of,

Lately she changed,
And she’s been kind of strange,
So I guess it that it shouldn’t be news,
Wearin’ short skirts
And what now really hurts
Is she’s wearing those rock ‘n’ roll shoes
And I wonder where
She’s goin’ with those rock ‘n’ roll shoes

She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
And I wonder where
She’s goin’ with those rock ‘n’ roll shoes

I know I’m a man
But you must understand
That I’m sad as a man can be,
Ain’t no use tryin’
I just can’t stop cryin’
‘Cause she ain’t rockin’ with me,
And I wonder why
My baby isn’t rockin’ with me

She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
She got rock ‘n’ roll shoes on
And I wonder where
She’s goin’ with those rock ‘n’ roll shoes






IF I KNEW YOU THEN (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2011

If I knew you then
The way I know you now
I’d do all over
And get through somehow
‘Cause you’re the one who taught me
The lessons I needed to learn

A smile that’s so beautiful
And eyes that hypnotize
Made me believe promises
And all of those lies
But sooner or later
You lose all the trust that you earn

The next man will fall for the same tricks I did
He’ll only end up in the same fix I did
If I try to warn him, he never would believe
How those soft, full red lips can deceive

I’d go through the heartache
And still have no regret
It was an education
I never will forget
‘Cause you’re the one who taught me
The lessons I needed to learn

The memory still lingers of the price that I paid
It’s there to remind me of mistakes that I made
The pain and the sadness I’m carrying with me
Have made me the man I’ve come to be





MRS. ROCKABILLY (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2013

She’s on my mind all day and on Saturday night
I wanna dance real close, wanna hold her tight
I want my hands on her, I want her hands on me
I want her lips to kiss me so tenderly
And I know you might laugh ‘cause it may sound silly
I want her to be my Mrs. Rockabilly

Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
I wanna have,
Some rockabilly babies with you.

She’s got a real short dress and long, black hair
She’s got piercings and tattoos goin’ everywhere
I got her name imprinted on my guitar
And the customized plate on my brand, new car
And in my back seat, if it gets too chilly
I’ll bring a little heat to Mrs. Rockabilly

Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
I wanna have
Some rockabilly babies with you.

She’s got a real smooth walk and she knows how to smile
With the wink of an eye that'll drive you wild
She can bring any man down to his knees
‘Cause she knows how to flirt and she knows how to tease
I’m a rock ‘n’ roll stud, she’s my sweet, little filly
I want her to be my Mrs. Rockabilly

Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
Mrs. Rockabilly, Mrs. Rockabilly
I wanna have
Some rockabilly babies with you.
Some rockabilly babies with you.
Some rockabilly babies with you.




MISS YOU TONIGHT (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2012

Baby how I miss you
Since you went away
And I don’t what I did to lose you
You never did say

If you’d give me the chance I could try to
Make it all right
Baby how I miss you
I miss you tonight

Baby, I’m not perfect
By now you should know
But I never thought that you would leave me
Where did you go?
It’s been years since I woke up and found you’d gone
Clear out of sight
Baby how I miss you
I miss you tonight

I thought if we tried
We could make it together
But you had
Something else on your mind

Baby how you doin’?
I still wonder how
Are you finally free  like you wanted to be?
Are you happy now?
Does your past ever come back and haunt you,
When you shut the light?
Baby how I miss you
I miss you tonight.



Jersey Shore Love Song (Agliata/Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2012

Summer nights at the beach
On the Jersey Shore with you
All alone and out of reach
And with nothing else to do

The lights on the boardwalk
Shining softly down on your hair
These are our moments to share
Hold my hand, I’ll take you there

Summer nights at the beach
On the Jersey Shore with you
All alone and out of reach
And with nothing else to do

The waves in the ocean
Whispering words we’re longing to say
On the sand, where we will lay
Hold my hand, I’ll take you away

If I could I’d be there with you forever
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
‘Cause every now and then
My mind starts to wander
And I can feel you there with me

Summer nights at the beach
On the Jersey Shore with you
All alone and out of reach
And with nothing else to do

On the Jersey Shore with you
On the Jersey Shore with you
On the Jersey Shore with you




THE NEW JERSEY BOP (PRETTY BOY BLUES) (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2012

Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby

Everyone is lookin’ at me
Laughin’ at the clothes I wear
At my slick black leather jacket
And my combed-back greasy hair
And my sideburns got them sayin’
"Who is that guy trying to be?"
But inside I know they're wishin’
They were more like me.

When my rock & roll is playin’
I don't care who's not around
But if no one's going to join me
Then I'll split right out of town

'Cause I know there's someone out there
And she's waiting just for me
She'll be crazy just like I am
And my arms will set her free
And we’ll rock the town together
And we’ll rock into the night
We’ll be riding on forever
Everything will be all right

Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby
Bop bop bop shooby dooby




ROCK-A-BILLY HIDE AWAY (Otto) ©Warbon Music/ASCAP 2012

Took a walk one summer night
Down that road that had no name
Lord it seems like it was yesterday
That I found that place along the way

I asked myself that starlit night
Is this a dream or is this place for real
I could see the house lights far below
From this place I found along the way

I felt this was a special place
That no one else had ever seen
I stood and listened real close
There it was, a voice in the breeze

I closed my eyes and it came to me
That voice I heard, it was “The King”
And the breeze was his guitar
The song he sang, it went like this

This is my rock-a-billy hide away
This is my rock-a-billy hide away
This is my rock-a-billy hide away
This is my rock-a-billy hide away

I still go back there now and again
Down that road that has no name
I can still hear him sing
If I listen real close




HEY BOSS (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2011

Hey Boss,
I need some money
Some money now to take me home
Hey Boss,
I need some money
‘Cause I don’t want to be alone
I got me a woman
Waitin’ for me
She’ll give me good lovin’
But lovin’ ain’t free
Hey Boss,
I need some money
Some money now to take me home

Hey Boss,
I need some money
To buy that girl a nice, red dress
Hey Boss,
I need some money
To get her nothin’ but the best
I want her to go out
Lookin’ so fine
I want the whole world
To know she is mine
Hey Boss, I need some money
To buy that girl a nice red dress

Hey Boss,
I need some money
To get myself some brand new shoes
Hey Boss,
I need some money
To hit the town and play those blues
I’m takin’ that lady
Out for a ride
I gotta look good
If she’s by my side
Hey Boss, I need some money
To get myself some brand new shoes
 
Hey Boss,
I need some money
‘Cause now I gotta pay the rent
Hey Boss,
I need some money
‘Cause everything I had been spent
I owe the man money
‘Cause I’m always late
I said “Wait ‘til Friday”
He don’t wanna wait
Hey Boss,
I need some money
‘Cause now I gotta pay the rent
Hey Boss, Hey Boss,
Hey Boss, Hey Boss
Hey Boss,
I need some money
Some money now to take me home



IN YOUR LOVIN’ ARMS (Colon) ©Roustasongs/ASCAP 2013

Well, in the mornin’ when I wake up
You are next to me
I make my way down to the kitchen
For a cup of tea
And for the next eight hours
I won’t be in your lovin’ arms

The same ol’ nine-to-five story
For another week
Another day, another dollar
‘Nother dream to seek
Then I’ll come home with flowers
And I’ll be in your lovin’ arms

When it all gets old
We can break away
And have ourselves a holiday
‘Cause with all this lovin’
That we want to make
The livin’s getting’ in the way

And though the money isn’t much
We’ll get our bills all paid
And we won’t talk about how much we owe
Or what we made
Because the night is ours
And  I’ll be in your lovin’ arms

In your lovin’ arms
In your lovin’ arms
Because the night is ours
And  I’ll be in your lovin’ arms

In your lovin’ arms
In your lovin’ arms
‘Cause I’ll come home with flowers
And  I’ll be in your lovin’ arms



ROCK ‘N’ ROLL REBEL (Otto) ©Warbon Music/ASCAP 2013

Rebel, he’s a rebel
Rebel, a rock ‘n’ roll rebel

I got a leather jacket on
It’s got an eagle on the back
I wear blue denim pants
And motorcycle boots
You think I’m a biker but I’ve got you fooled
I play rock ‘n’roll from the mornin’ to the night

I’m a rebel
A rock ‘n’ roll rebel
I’m a rebel
I’ve got music in my veins
I got rhythm in my feet
I play rock ‘n’ roll
‘Til I know you got the beat

Uncle Bubba done told me
Son you can’t play like that
The law is gonna get ya
And they’ll throw away the key
I said don’t you worry none
They’ll never get me
I’m gonna be a star
And I’m goin’ on TV

I’m a rebel
A rock ‘n’ roll rebel
I’m a rebel
I’ve got music in my veins
I got rhythm in my feet
I play rock ‘n’ roll
‘Til I know you got the beat

Now I’m on TV and on radio, too
I play all the dances and the concert halls
Rock ‘n’ roll music is what I do best
It’s the kind of music that never grows old


MY ONLY DREAM (Colon) © Roustasongs/ASCAP 2013

If you only knew all the things that
I’ve done to get through
Then you’d take the time to hear
It’s true, what I do is to 
Come out of the blue
For a dance or a chance to be near

Can’t you see that I need you more
More than I ever did before
Can’t you see that you’d be my pride
If I just had you here by my side
It would be me and you
Please help my dream come true
My only dream is me and you

If I say goodbye would it make you
Wonder why
I’d leave after so many tries
Would you wonder who was the man that
Suddenly flew
Or would it not be a surprise

Can’t you see that I need you more
More than I ever did before
Can’t you see that you’d be my pride
If I just had you here by my side
It would be me and you
Please help my dream come true
My only dream is me and you



















ONCE AGAIN IN THE BLUE (Colon) © Roustasongs/ASCAP 2015
 
Once again in the blue
Once again in the blue
But I guess that it ain’t nothing new
Once again I'm treated cruel
Once again I'm made a fool
Love has taken me
Once again in the blue
 
Once again I am down
Once again I am down
Once again I'm made into a clown
I don't deserve this luck I've had
I never treated no one bad
Love has taken me
And once again I am down
 
Every time I think of her
I get a deep pain in me
When will I
Find someone who
Will be true
Forever true
 
Once again I'm alone
Once again I'm alone
Once again there's no one on the phone
No one there to say "hello"
No one cares, no place to go
Love has taken me
Once again I'm alone
