Paul Revere & The Raiders
Well, listen, my children, &-a you're gonna hear
About the midnight ride of-a Paul Revere
He had a hopped-up on his shoulder & mighty hot
Stand on his tail & off like a shot
He was a goin'-tide cat, this ol' Revere (rockin' Paul Revere)
You know he said to "stand on the shoulder & watch for the lights
I'm gonna blink 'em once, oh or blink 'em twice
Once if I hear & twice if I see
Then off of my trail they ain't gonna catch me"
He was a cautious mudder, this ol' Revere (rockin' Paul Revere)
He was a-rockin' & a-ridin' (rockin' & a-ridin')
He was a-peelin' & a-hidin' (peelin' & a-hidin')
He was a-tearin' up the lane like a man insane
Rockin' Paul Revere
(Rockin' Paul Revere)
Well, studs drove the message & they pulled down the zips
They headed for the bridge to cut off the ships
When they got there they shuffled it tight
They polished their pieces & got set to fight
They got the word, man, from ol' Revere (rockin' Paul Revere)
Studs saved their bridge & they saved their pads
They were one big bunch of-a happy dads
They licked the mean casses, had nothin' but fear
But they coded homage to Paul Revere
He was a real good head, this ol' Revere (rockin' Paul Revere)
Ah, tell 'em that, Revere! Oh, ride that on, travel, yeah!
Look at him a-smokin' down that road!
First they got to see him push them red cats right into the sea!
Oh, travel on! (Rockin' Paul Revere)
