Whitesnake

Whitesnake is a British rock band, founded in 1978 by David Coverdale after his departure from his previous band, Deep Purple. Their early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple, but by the mid 1980s they had moved to a more commercial hard rock style. Four of the band's earliest albums reached the top 10 in the UK, with Ready an' Willing (1980), Come an' Get It (1981), Saints & Sinners (1982) and Slide It In (1984). The band's 1987 self-titled album was their most commercially successful worldwide, and contained three of their most recognisable songs, "Here I Go Again", "Still of the Night" and "Is This Love".

I'm getting ready
I'm in the mood to fool around
It's time for action
Now the boys are back in town

So turn up the music,
Make it loud and proud
Let's see reaction
Let the spotlight hit the crowd

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

You got the power,
I feel your fire in my soul
You got the fever,
'Cause you were born to rock an' roll
Don't run for cover,
I'm gonna show you what I've learned
Just come a little closer,
Come on an' get your fingers burned 

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher. 

Now are you ready to rock,
Are you ready to roll,
Are you ready to rock

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

I'm getting ready,
I'm in the mood to fool around
It's time for action,
'Cause now the boys are back in town

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher. 

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

Are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

Are you ready to rock,
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night 

Just let the music take you higher
