Get Ready To Roll

Janis Ian

Play it low in the pocket
Something's just got to break
You've been waiting so long for success
It's a shame it's gonna come too late

Baby, fly like a rocket
Shoot it out in stages from the mother ship
It's too bad you gotta lose
what you had
but when you cruise
you gotta shoot it from the hip
Aw, you give 'em all the slip

And it's too bad
Hear they got you shooting
with a crooked cue
Mmm, somebody really got it in for you
When the night runs down all over town
and everybody's lost control
Get ready to roll
Get ready to roll

Play it high on the hip
Something's just gotta give
Hold that thirty-eight ready
'til she really looks steady
Then just let her rip

Put some powder in your eyes
just before that contact's made
How it must hurt to pervert
when the curtain can't hide
from that fire in your eyes
but is it really a surprise

And it's too bad
Hear they got you shooting
with a crooked cue
Mmm, somebody really got it in for you
When the night runs down all over town
And everybody's lost control
Get ready to roll
Get ready to roll
Get ready to roll
