Rock N Roll n*****

This song is by Patti Smith and appears on the album Easter (1978).

Baby was a black sheep, baby was a whore
Baby got big and baby get bigger
Baby get something. Baby get more
Baby, baby, baby was a rock-and-roll n*****.
Oh, look around you, all around you
Riding on a copper wave
Do you like the world around you?
Are you ready to behave?

Outside of society, they're waitin' for me
Outside of society, that's where I want to be
(Lenny!)

Baby was a black sheep. Baby was a whore.
You know she got big. Well, she's gonna get bigger.
Baby got a hand; got a finger on the trigger.
Baby, baby, baby is a rock-and-roll n*****.

Outside of society, that's where I want to be
Outside of society, they're waitin' for me

(Those who have suffered, understand suffering,
And thereby extend their hand
The storm that brings harm
Also makes fertile
Blessed is the grass
And herb and the true thorn and light)

I was lost in a valley of pleasure
I was lost in the infinite sea
I was lost, and measure for measure
Love spewed from the heart of me
I was lost, and the cost
And the cost didn't matter to me
I was lost, and the cost
Was to be outside society

Jimi Hendrix was a n*****
Jesus Christ and Grandma, too
Jackson Pollock was a n*****
n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****

Outside of society, they're waitin' for me
Outside of society, if you're looking that's where you'll find me
Outside of society, they're waitin' for me
Outside of society
