Why Should the Devil Have all the Good Music – Cliff Richard Lyrics

“Why Should the Devil Have all the Good Music” Lyrics
by : Cliff Richard

Lyrics :
People say to me that Jesus and rock and roll can never go together
But I think they’re wrong, they’re wrong, they’re wrong!
Listen to my song, my song, my song!
Why should the devil have all the good music?
Why should the devil have all the good music?
One, two
One, two, three!

I want the people to know that he saved my soul
But I still like to listen to the radio
They say rock’n’roll is wrong, we’ll give you one more chance
I said: I feel so good I gotta get up and dance!

I know what’s right, I know what’s wrong, and I don’t confuse it!
All I’m really trying to say is:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I feel good every day
‘Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!

They say to cut my hair, they’re driving me insane
I’m, growing it out long to make room for my brain!
Sometimes people don’t understand:
What’s a good boy doing in a rock’n’roll band?

There’s nothing wrong with playing a blues lick
Well, if you got a reason, tell me to my face:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
There’s nothing wrong with what he plays
‘Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!

Now I ain’t knocking the hymns
Just give me a song that has a beat!
No, I ain’t knocking the hymns
Give me a song that moves my feet!

Rock on!

Jesus told the truth, Jesus showed the way
One more thing I’d like to say:
They nailed him to the cross and they laid him in the ground
They should’ve known, you can’t keep a good man down!
I feel good every day, and I refuse to lose it
All I wanna know from all of you is:
Why should the devil have all the good music?
I’ve been filled, feel okay
‘Cause Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues…
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues…
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!
Yeah!

Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!
Yeah!
Jesus is the rock and he rolled my blues away!
And he’s gonna keep on rolling them, yes, he is…
