LyricsEdit

BOY:

Every night I grab some money and I go down to the bar
I got my buddies and a beer, I got a dream, I need a car
You got me begging on my knees, c'mon and throw the dog a bone
A man, he doesn't live by rock 'n' roll and brew alone

Baby, baby
Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew
I know that you and I, oh we got better things to do
Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew
They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you

I don't know who you are or what you do
Or where you go when you're not around
I don't know anything about you, baby
But you're everything I'm dreaming of
I don't know who you are
But you're a real dead ringer for love
You're a real dead ringer for love

GIRL:

Ever since I can remember you been hanging around this joint
You been trying to look away but now you finally got the point
I don't have to know your name and I won't tell you what to do
But a girl, she doesn't live by only rock 'n' roll and brew
Baby, baby, baby, baby

BOTH:

Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew

BOY:

They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you

BOTH:

Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew

BOY:

I know that you and I, oh we got better things to do
I don't know who you are or what you do
Or where you go when you're not around

GIRL:

I don't know anything about you, baby
But you're everything I'm dreaming of
I don't know who you are

BOY:

But you're a real dead ringer for love
You're a real dead ringer for love

BOY:

Oh! You got the kind of legs that do more than walk

GIRL:

I don't have to listen to your whimpering talk

BOY:

Listen, you got the kind of eyes that do more than see

GIRL:

You got a lot of nerve to come on to me

BOY:

You got the kind of lips that do more than drink

GIRL:

You got the kind of mind that does less than think

But since I'm feeling kinda lonely and my defenses are low
Why don't you give it a shot and get it ready to go
I'm looking for anonymous and fleeting satisfaction
I wanna tell my daddy I'll be missing in action

Ever since I can remember I've been hanging 'round this joint
My daddy never noticed now he'll finally get the point

BOY:

You got me beggin' on my knees
C'mon and throw the dog a bone
A man, he doesn't live by rock 'n' roll and brew alone

BOTH:

Baby, baby, baby, baby
Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew
They don't mean a thing when I compare 'em next to you
Rock 'n' roll and brew
Rock 'n' roll and brew
I know that you and I oh we got better things to do

GIRL:

I don't know who you are

BOY:

Or what you do

GIRL:

Or where you go

BOY:

When you're not around

GIRL:

I don't know anything about you, baby

BOY:

But you're everything I'm dreaming of

BOTH:

I don't know who you are
But you're a real dead ringer for love
A real dead ringer for love

Dead ringer for love
Dead ringer for love (Dead ringer)
Dead ringer for love (Dead ringer)
Dead ringer for love (Dead ringer)
