Roll ’em Girls

 

Click here to watch a short clip of Brother William Branham referring to  one of the first uncensored songs, "Roll'em girls."

 

Selfish, provocative, and defiant, “Roll ’em Girls” opened fire on old time religion in a new, teasing way. Uncensored, it slipped its  subtle  message of  immorality onto the airwaves and into the subconscious of an unwary public. A pathway had been cleared through the field of broadcasting for an army of musical goblins that was fast advancing on the horizon.       – Rebekah Smith, Only Believe, December 1991

 

Roll'em Girls

 

Listen girls, listen girls

I´ve a word for you

Just because you´re up to date

And do the things you do

Don´t let anyone tell you

That you don´t act nice

For you´re as sweet as grandma was

So take my advice

 

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em

Go ahead and roll ´em

Roll ´em down and show your pretty knees

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em, everybody roll ´em

Roll ´em high or low just as you please

 

Don´t let people tell you that it´s shocking

Paint your own Sweetie´s picture

On your stocking

Laugh at ma, laugh at pa

Give them all the haha

Roll ´em girlies, roll ´em, roll your own!

 

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em

Go ahead and roll ´em

Roll ´em down and please the traffic cop

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em, everybody roll ´em

When you cross the street the traffic stops

Even grouchy traffic cops get jolly

When they see you step into a trolly

Red lights on, red lights off

Cops are only human

Roll ´em girlies, roll ´em, roll your own

 

Listen girls, listen girls, when you bobbed your hair

You were criticized a lot, but still you didn´t care!

When you shortened your dresses

You gave us some shocks

But we never thought that soon

You´d be wearing socks!

 

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em

Go ahead and roll ´em

In the winter, summer, spring or fall

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em, everybody roll ´em

Anywhere or time or place at all.

Young girls, old girls, sweethearts, wives and mothers, 

Young maids, old maids, even our grandmothers

High or low, rain or snow, 

Girlies must be stylish

Roll ´em girlies, roll ´em, roll your own

 

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em

Go ahead and roll ´em

Roll ´em where you think they look the best

Roll ´em girls, roll ´em, everybody roll ´em

Roll ´em north and south and east and west!

Nowadays you girlies have your freedom

Don´t wear things if you don´t think ya need ´em

Laugh at ma, laugh at pa

Give them all the haha

Roll ´em girlies, roll ´em, roll your own
