Lyrics for singles by Joan Jett

I Love Rock 'n' Roll
I Hate Myself for Loving You



I Love Rock 'n' Roll

I saw him dancing there by the record machine
I knew he must have been about seventeen
The beat was going strong, playing my favorite song
And I could tell it wouldn't be long
till he was with me, yeah, me
And I could tell it wouldn't be long
till he was with me, yeah, me, singin'

I love rock 'n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock 'n' roll
So come and take your time and dance with me

He smiled, so I got up and asked for his name
"That doesn't matter," he said, "'cause it's all the same."

I said, "Can I take you home where we can be alone?"
And next we were moving on
and he was with me, yeah, me
And next we were moving on
and he was with me, yeah, me, singin'

[chorus]

I said, "Can I take you home where we can be alone?"
And next we were moving on
and he was with me, yeah, me, singin'

Moving on and singin' the same old song
yeah with me, singin'

[chorus]




I Hate Myself for Loving You

Midnight, gettin' uptight, where are you?
You said you'd meet me, now it's quarter to two
I know I'm hangin' but I'm still wantin' you

Hey, Jack, it's a fact they're talkin' in town
I turn my back and you're messin' around
I'm not really jealous, don't like lookin' like a clown

I think of you every night and day
You took my heart, then you took my pride away

I hate myself for loving you
Can't break free from the things that you do
I want to walk but I run back to you, that's why
I hate myself for loving you

Daylight, spent the night without you
But I've been dreamin' 'bout the lovin' you do
I won't be as angry 'bout the hell you put me through

Hey, man, bet you can treat me right
You just don't know what you was missin' last night
I want to see your face and say "forget it" just for spite

[chorus]

[chorus]

I think of you every night and day
You took my heart, then you took my pride away

[chorus]
