Lyrics
When I was only 17 I thought I knew it all
But little did I know that I was headed for a fall
Daddy tried to tell me, boy you wanna be a man
Gotta know when to walk and when to make a stand
Gotta be hard like a rock and roll like a rollin' stone
Hit it boys...yeah...that's right
Show up two minutes late for my dead end job
Got a boss who's on the take and I think I'm being robbed
Layin' down the law to me like Moses on the hill
I don't mind tellin' you, I think I've had my fill

I don't have to take it
I don't have to take it from you, oh no no
I don't have to take it
I tell you what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna be hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone
I said I'm gonna be hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone, yeah

Headin' out early, thought I'd put up with the worst
Lord I shoulda known better, shoulda called home first
What did I see when I opened up the door
My baby and another man doin' it on the floor
I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it from you, even if you want me to
I ain't gonna take it
I tell you what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna be hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone
Hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone, yeah

Gonna drink from the well, till the river runs dry
Reach for the stars till the day that I die
And when I'm lookin' for fun
I'm gonna rock until I run

(Solo)
When I was only 17 I got some good advice
If you think you know it all boy, you best be thinkin' twice
Daddy tried to tell me, boy you wanna be a man
Gotta know when to walk and when to make a stand

Gotta be hard, I gotta roll
Hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone
Hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone
Hard like a rock
Roll like a rollin' stone
Hard like a rock
I gotta roll, roll
Yeah, on my own

Gonna drink from the well, till the river runs dry
Reach for the stars till the day that I die
And when I'm lookin' for fun
I'm gonna rock until I run
