Lyrics

I got a 007 watch and it’s a one and only
It’s got a I-Spy beeper that tells me when you’re lonely
I got a Batmobile so I can reach ya’ in a fast shake
When your world’s in crisis of an impendin’ heartbreak

Now don’t you call James Bond or Secret Agent Man
Cause they can’t do it, like I can
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker – every day
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker

If you’re hanging from a cliff or you’re tied to the tracks, girl
Columbo split and you can’t find Kojak
True love is broken and your tears are fallin’ faster
You’re sufferin’ from a pain in your heart or some other natural disaster

Now I don’t care what kind of shape you’re in
If they put up a roadblock, I’ll parachute in
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker – I’m in love
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker – every day
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker – with you

So you fell for some jerk who was tall, dark and handsome
Then he kidnapped your heart and now he’s holdin’ it for ransom
Well, like a mission impossible I’m gonna go and get it back
You know I would’a taken better care of it, baby, than that

Sometimes I get so hot girl, well, I can’t talk
But when I’m with you I cool off , and I walk
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker, and I talk
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker, every day
I’m a rocker, baby, I’m a rocker, every day
