You ain't goin' nowhere
Gonna sit by this pool until you fall in
Didn't know what you were getting into
When you walked into this room
Did you, kid?

We got some girls over here
We got some boys over there
And they're here just for your fun

So have some dinner, baby
Play some records
Just remember one thing, son

This is serious business
Sex and violence and rock and roll
This is serious business
Sex and violence and rock and roll

You know my head is sweating
I can't dance and I can't relax
Outside is too threatening now
I've come this far and I can't go back

Call up some old friends
Call up some strangers
Get me used to that French telephone
Donna Donna, educate me
But tell those girls that I'm not alone

Take my life and take my soul
Put me on the cross for all to see
Put my name around my neck
Let those people throw stones at me

This is serious business
Sex and violence and rock and roll
