Day after day, I'm more confused 
Yet I look for the light through the pourin' rain 
You know that's a game that I hate to loose 
And I'm feelin' the strain 
Ain't it a shame 
 
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
 
Beginnin' to think that I'm wastin' time 
I don't understand the things I do 
The world outside looks so unkind 
Now I'm countin' on you 
To carry me through 
 
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
Yea, give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
 
And when my mind is free 
You know a melody can move me 
And when I'm feelin' blue 
The guitar's comin' through 
To soothe me 
 
Thanks for the joy that you've given me 
I want you to know I believe in your song 
And rhythm and rhyme and harmony 
You help me along 
Makin' me strong 
 
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
Give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
 
Oh-ho, ah-no 
Give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
 
Hey, hey, hey, yeah 
Give me the beat boys and free my soul 
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll 
And drift away 
 
Na, Na, now won't ya 
Won't ya take me 
Oh-ha, take me
