BandPopRock

"A rich full sound that combines indie-rock energy with elements of smooth acoustic accents and a 70's pop spirit. Fronted by soulful croons, extra bright stage-presence, and soaring musicianship, Olaroks put on a performance that got the crowd up and dancing. Good times." -The Lonely Vagabond

Biography

OLAROKS plays dirty indie rock music.
They always get the crowd up and dancing!

"A rich full sound that combines indie-rock energy with elements of smooth acoustic accents and a 70's pop spirit." -The Lonely Vagabond

"OLAROKS did not disappoint; the crowd was into it, they played some really great songs and left the stage making me wish that they had more time to play. As far as I’m concerned that’s the sign of a great band." -Fan Blog

I Like Your Bitches (Dinner)

Written By: Ola Roks

I Like Your Bitches (Dinner)
You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

Got punched in the gut by some hot slut
Coughed up my heart but I didn't make the cut
Now the middle of the week feels middle of the road
Better get it now though I know I might explode
Got punched in the gut by some hot slut
Coughed up my heart but I didn't make the cut
Now the middle of the week feels middle of the road
Better get it now though I know I might explode

You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

Got punched in the face and I want another taste
Cause I do it for the thrill and I do it for the chase
And I'm better when youre bad cause its better for the score
You can hit me where it hurts and I wanna hit the floor
Got punched in the face and I want another taste
Cause I do it for the thrill and I do it for the chase
And I'm better when youre bad cause its better for the score
You can hit me where it hurts and I wanna hit the floor

You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches
I like your bitches

You look at me like I'm dinner baby
I can do it for you
You can do it for me
I like your bitches

I like your bitches

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

I LIKE YOUR BITCHES!

Wake Up

Written By: Steve O'Gorman

WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF MUSIC
GOT THE RHYTHM OF THE SEA
YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS RIGHT
CAUSE THIS IS HOW ITS GOT TO BE
WAKE UP TO THE SOUND OF MUSIC
GOT THE RHYTHM OF THE SEA
YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS RIGHT
CAUSE THIS IS HOW IT’S GOT TO BE
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
WAKE UP
WAKE UP INTO THE LIGHT
I’M GONNA WAKE UP
WAKE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT
I WANNA WAKE UP
NEXT TO YOU
WAKE UP
WAKE UP INTO THE LIGHT
I’M GONNA WAKE UP
WAKE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT
I WANNA WAKE UP
NEXT TO YOU
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
WAKE UP
WAKE UP INTO THE LIGHT
I GONNA WAKE UP
WAKE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT
I WANNA WAKE UP
NEXT TO YOU
WAKE UP
WAKE UP INTO THE LIGHT
I’M GONNA WAKE UP
WAKE UP AND MAKE IT RIGHT
I WANNA WAKE UP
NEXT TO YOU
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
EVEN THOUGH I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THIS WORLD
I’M GONNA WAIT FOR YOU
IF I COULD ONLY WAKE UP.

Tiny Minds

Written By: Ola Roks

I’M NOT BIG ON TINY MINDS
THE ONES THAT DON’T PICK UP ON SIGNS
THE KIND THAT COME IN FORM OF SONG
ADMIRE FROM AFAR BUT DON’T GET ALONG
I’M NOT BIG ON BUILDING BONDS
WITH PERFECT STRANGERS – CARRY ON
I’M NOT SHY BUT I’M RESERVED
& FAR TOO FAR TOO UNCONCERNED
I CANT HELP MYSELF I AM COMPELLED TO PUSH YOUR BUTTONS
THIS BACKSTABBING DANCE
OF THE BEST OF BEST FRIENDS IS MAKING ME NERVOUS
I SHOULD DISGUISE THESE BEER-COLORED EYES OF MINE
BLIND ME REMIND ME TO LISTEN
I WATCH TOO CLOSELY
NOT ALWAYS BUT MOSTLY
I STOP AND I STARE FROM A DISTANCE
I SHOULD TAKE PARDON LET EVERYONE HARDEN
STROKE EVERY EGO BY HAND
LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT
I’D NEVER BELIEVE IT
UNDER THIS SPELL THIS COMMAND
I CANT HELP MYSELF I AM COMPELLED TO PUSH YOUR BUTTONS
THIS BACKSTABBING DANCE
OF THE BEST OF BEST FRIENDS IS MAKING ME NERVOUS
I’M A SUCKER FOR A SMILE
IMPRECISE – NOT IN DENIAL
BURNING BRIDGES CASTING STONES
NAMING NAMES AND BREAKING BONES.

CHILD OF TOMORROW
YOUR BEAUTY IS BORROWED
SO FLAUNT AS YOU WILL
AND SALVATION WILL FOLLOW
CHILD OF TOMORROW
YOUR TIME HERE IS BORROWED
SO FLAUNT AS YOU WILL
AND SALVATION WILL FOLLOW
ARE YOU BETTER?
ARE YOU NEW?
IT’S NOT UP TO ME
THAT’S UP TO YOU
HAVE YOU FOUND GOD?
HAVE YOU FOUND LIGHT?
I DON’T THINK I HAVE
BUT I THINK I MIGHT
CHILD ON A BENDER
GO ON
BEFRIEND HER
HER LUCK IS HER WILL
AND HER LUST IS HER LENDER
ARE YOU BETTER?
ARE YOU NEW?
IT’S NOT UP TO ME
THAT’S UP TO YOU
HAVE YOU FOUND GOD?
HAVE YOU FOUND LIGHT?
I DON’T THINK I HAVE
BUT I THINK I MIGHT
CHILD OF TOMORROW
YOUR BEAUTY IS BORROWED
SO FLAUNT AS YOU WILL
AND SALVATION WILL FOLLOW
CHILD OF TOMORROW
YOUR TIME HERE IS BORROWED
SO CHERISH YOUR BEAUTY
AND DON’T DWELL IN SORROW.
