Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. more »

 Struggling with Rocky? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
He's got the talent to take him far
Started out playing hotel bars
Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star

Spent his time just looking for kicks
Whipping out them tricks to pull the chicks
Just have a chance every way he rips
Come on rocky take me into the night

The neon streets are shining bright
To all them queens you bring the light
That cocky rocky
His belt is so tight

Hits the stage, the show begins
Dressed in black to make him thin
The speed they flash and when he grins
Sail away rocky and nobody sings (?)

Come on rocky and throw the dice
You threw it once, now throw it twice
Heavy boys, they want a slice
They paid their money, they want a choice

Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
He's got the talent to take him far
And all he needs is that old guitar
Cocky rocky, the rock and roll star
