It's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll-AC DC sang it

Lyrics to AC DC hit, "It's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll," from their 1976 album, High Voltage



"Ridin' down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stop in all the by-ways
Playin' rock 'n' roll
Gettin' robbed
Gettin' stoned
Gettin' beat up
Broken boned
Gettin' had
Gettin' took
I tell you folks
It's harder than it looks


It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you think it's easy doin' one night stands
Try playin' in a rock roll band
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll


Hotel, motel
Make you wanna cry

Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Gettin' old
Gettin' grey
Gettin' ripped off
Under-paid
Gettin' sold
Second hand
That's how it goes
Playin' in a band


It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll

It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top
If you wanna rock 'n' roll"
