The Wonderstrucks

The Wonderstrucks

BandPopRock

The Wonderstrucks are a glorious mixture of rock, pop, melody, volume, power, gloss, and crunch. They are a testament to anthemic choruses, soaring harmonies, and the undeniable force of a well-placed "yeah, yeah, yeah."

Biography

The Wonderstrucks know that life is too short for bad music. Each and every Wonderstrucks track is their shot at writing the greatest song ever---a dizzying mixture of sweetness and snarl.

Melding pure pop songcraft with bristling guitars, The Wonderstrucks aim for equal parts Cheap Trick and Brian Wilson; a perfect balance between The Ramones and The Raspberries. There are no wasted moments.

Lyrics

Rock and Roll Song

Written By: Rick Emerson

Kurt had Courtney
And I got you
John had Yoko
You know she saw him through
Paul had Linda
Nancy had her Sid
Now I just wanna say it like they did

I wanna yeah, yeah, yeah
And nah, nah, nah
And all the other things they only do in songs
I wanna whoa, whoa, whoa
And hey, hey, hey
And tell all the world I fell in love today

Frank had Ava
To suffer for
Johnny had June Carter
Together evermore
And Tommy fought for Gina
You know Jack loved Diane
And now thanks to you I finally understand

I wanna yeah, yeah, yeah
And nah, nah, nah
And all the other things they only do in songs
I wanna whoa, whoa, whoa
And hey, hey, hey
And tell all the world I fell in love today

You've heard these rhymes
A million times
A million different songs
Now thanks to you
They're all brand new
And I wanna sing along
Come on

I wanna yeah, yeah, yeah
And nah, nah, nah
And all the other things they only do in songs
I wanna whoa, whoa, whoa
And hey, hey, hey
And tell all the world I fell in love today
I wanna learn to dance
Wanna join the band
Wanna see you standing there
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna turn it to eleven
And shout it out loud
And tell everyone to sing along in the crowd
I wanna yeah, yeah, yeah
And nah, nah, nah
And all the other things they only do in songs
I wanna whoa, whoa, whoa
And hey, hey, hey
And tell all the world I fell in love today
