Lyrics

t Ain't Pretty (Rock and Roll)

Smoky nights in those rock 'n roll bars
Never has-beens and wanna be stars
Tryin' to get arrested at the Scene of the crime yeah
Waitin' in line for the very last chance
She's one of the boys in the band now she'll prove she can play good enough so
dig in if you like 'em rough

It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll

Tryin' to see who makes the loudest noise

Vacancy signs that never say no
Past the wall-flowers deliberately posed
but She's much too tough to give it up she knows she's
made of stronger stuff

It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
Tryin' to see who makes the loudest noise
Dressin' down with all those pretty boys

She's much too tough to give it up she knows she's
holding out for better luck

Spoken: Cobwebs in the corner the carpet looks like it was painted with glue sticky down and dirty clean it up


It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
(can't you?) cookie cutter find a better mold

It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll
It Ain't Pretty - Rock and Roll

(oh I guess) you gotta love it....
