The Marshall Plan Lyrics

The Marshall Plan - Blue Oyster Cult

In a dark horse town in the middle of the west

Where Friday takes so long to arrive

 

Johnny wakes up dreaming turns on the radio

 

The he jumps up plays his guitar in the mirror

Starts his day with a rock and roll pose

 

Tonight's the night that Susie and he

 

Are going to a rock and roll show

 

Tonight I'm gonna see some rock and roll

 

Yeah my favorite group is playing

 

Tonight I'm gonna see some rock and roll

 

Well it's showtime and he's caught up in the crowd

 

He hates the crush but he loves the music loud

 

He reaches out and Susie's disappeared

 

Now Johnny's standing on a corner after the show

 

Looking for his Susie dear

 

But there goes his Susie - in the band's limousine

 

Yeah well that's the way it goes at these rock and roll shows

That's the way it goes - it's rock and roll

 

That's the way it goes - it's rock and roll

 

Now Susie's gone and Johnny hears the thunder

As he rolls another number and he counts

 

He counts the times he's felt himself to be the hero

 

'Cause ever since he was a boy

He's heard about adventure

 

As he looks into the mirror now he knows

 

He must be the star and play guitar like thunder

 

Find Susie at his rock and roll show

 

Boy if I only had a good guitar and a big amp

 

Boy it wouldn't be somebody else taking my girl away tell ya

I know what I should do I'll put an ad in the paper

Get a few other guys who want to play as much as I do

Tell ya I ain't playin' no surf music

I'm gonna play some heavy music

 

I'm gonna play bad

I'm gonna play loud

 

I know just what I want it to sound like

It's gonna sound like

It's gonna sound like

 

This is Don Kirshner

And tonight on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert

A new phenomenon in the music world

With six million albums to his credit in just two short years

 

My good friend here's Johnny

 

Now Johnny became a legend in his time

 

Found it easier to live in pain

 

Half a hero in a hard-hearted game

 

Now it's showtime and he's caught up in the flow

 

He hates the rush but he needs the music so

 

Still he reaches out but Susie's disappeared

 

Well that's the way it goes at these rock and roll shows

 

It's rock and roll

 

That's the way it goes - It's rock and roll

 

That's the way it goes - It's rock and roll

 

That's the way it goes - It's rock and roll
