The Heart Of Rock And Roll

Version originale (3:36)

Humpty Dumpty
Got so drunk he
Thought that he could sing.
Now every rag
And glossy mag
Think he’s the next big thing.

Watch the floodgates swinging open, Watch the floodgates swinging open,
Now the heart of rock and roll is broken, Now the heart of rock and roll is broken,
Broken, Broken,
Broken. Broken.
It’s broken. It’s broken.

Mary, Mary!
Only rarely
Have I heard such shit
But still the DJs
Give you three plays
Every nine minutes.

Shall the truth be left unspoken? Shall the truth be left unspoken?
Now the heart of rock and roll is broken, Now the heart of rock and roll is broken,
Broken, Broken,
Broken. Broken.

Jack and Jill
Popped every pill
Till every thrill was gone.
They looked inside
And could not find
The will to carry on.

My worst fears have re-awoken, My worst fears have re-awoken,
Now the heart of rock and roll is broken, Now the heart of rock and roll is broken,
Broken, Broken,
Broken. Broken.
It’s broken. It’s broken.
