"Rock and roll is the answer" lyrics

So, I wasn't quite clear on what the lyrics to Joey Ramone's "Rock and roll is the answer" were. I could figure out most of them but decided to look them up. The album isn't even out yet, just that single so the lyrics are newly posted and have a lot of incorrect lines in them. So I decided to fix the lyrics and re-post them, hopefully these get found instead of the badly transcribed ones. Finally "...Ya Know?" came out on the 22nd and I found out what the lyrics were...officially!


Seven o’clock and I’m feelin' rotten
Gonna pull myself together here
Cause twelve o’clock you know I wanna rock
I wanna get a belly full of beer.
Fighting nightly baby it's a bore, everything is going wrong
Saturday night it's gonna be alright
We'll go bar hoppin' til the break of dawn, yeah!
Baby, baby
We gonna have a ball
Ooh, come on baby
We gonna have it...
We gonna have it all!

Chorus:
Rock’n roll is the answer
Rock’n roll is the answer
Oh, oh, oh
Rock’n roll is the answer
Rock’n roll is the answer
Oh yeah!

I got soused now in the doghouse to make everythin' turn out alright
My my baby, she’s mad at me but I aint going to let it ruin my time
The neighbors are complaining, I’m going insane
There goes the doorbell, the telephone
But it's Saturday night it's gonna be alright
We'll go bar hopin til the break of dawn
Yeah! Baby, baby
We gonna have a ball
Ooh, come on baby
We gonna have it...
We gonna have it all!
We gonna have it, we gonna have it all!

Chorus:
Rock’n roll is the answer
Rock’n roll is the answer
Oh, oh, oh
Rock’n roll is the answer
Rock’n roll is the answer
Oh yeah!

My parents are always lecturing me
I tell them that it just don’t matter
Take away my MTV, but you can’t break the spirit
....but you can’t break the spirit, can’t break the spirit, baby!
No you can’t break the spirit...can’t break the spirit, baby!

Chorus: (x3)
Rock’n roll is the answer
Rock’n roll is the answer
Oh, oh, oh
Rock’n roll....is the answer
Rock’n roll...is the answer
Oh yeah!
Rock and roll...
It is the answer!
Rock and roll...is the answer
Yeah yeah!
Oh yeah!
Rock and roll...
It is the answer
Rock and roll...is the answer
Yeah yeah!
Rock and roll...is the answer 
Rock and roll...yeah yeah yeah!
Rock and roll...is the answer 
Rock and roll...is the answer 
Rock and roll...is the answer

* The only two lines I'm not sure about are "I got sassed out in the dark up to me everythin' turned out alright" and "Take away my emptiness, but you can’t break the spirit" emptiness sounds like "MTV."
