Rockford’s Rock Opera (Part 1)

Every day
Watching as the world goes by
In my room
Lonely days
Waiting for the hearts to fly
With my tunes

But what is that peculiar sound?
So hurry now, he’s coming to town!

So all roll up
To Rockford’s Rock Opera with me
Roll up and see
if you stroll up
We’ll all get together
Come to Rockford’s Rock Opera with me!

So All roll up!
To Rockford’s Rock Opera with me
Roll up and see
if you stroll up
We’ll all get together
Come to Rockford’s Rock Opera with me !
Coz it’s Rockfords’ Rock Opera you see
So all roll up with me.

Roaming with Rockford

When you’re down
Feeling tired and cold
And pretty useless
he’s the one the glums will let
The sun shine through

If you go roaming with Rockford
When you’ve a trouble to beat
He’ knows and he’ll take you homeward

Where life is sweet
For you and me !

So take a trip
Wander down the ways
And when you’re walking
He’s the chum who
Comes to make the fun time true.

If you go roaming with Rockford
When you’ve a trouble to beat
He’ knows and he’ll take you homeward
Where life is sweet!
For you and me
