Rock Me was the Yugoslavian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1989 Lausanne performed by the group Riva.

It was performed last following Germany. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 137 points, considered by many as the darkest of dark horses ever to have won the contest. Such was the surprise of Riva's victory that many were negative about it.

"Rock Me" was Yugoslavia's first and only win before it broke up into independent states, and the last new winning song until 2001.

Lyrics

Oh... whoa oh oh oh...

On cijele dane svir'o je na svom klaviru
On klasiku je svir'o po notnom papiru
A svir'o je k'o pijanista – Mozarta, Chopena, Liszta
Ja novu pjesmu našla sam da svira
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je
Rock me, baby, samo neka traje
Rock me, baby, ovo je za nervni stres
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je
Rock me, baby, samo neka traje
Rock me, baby, samo neka je za ples

Sad cijele dane čujem zvuk starog klavira
Tu pjesmu što se svira bez notnog papira
Jer klasika je da se sluša i da se njom opija duša
A ova pjesma svira se za ples
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je Rock me, baby, samo neka traje Rock me, baby, ovo je za nervni stres Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je
Rock me, baby, samo neka traje
Rock me, baby, samo neka je za ples
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Rock me, baby, samo neka traje
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Rock me, baby, ovo je za nervni stres (Ooh... rock, babe)
(Rock me, baby) Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, nije važno šta je
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Rock me, baby, samo neka traje
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Rock me, baby, samo neka je za ples
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Samo neka je za ples
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Samo neka je za...
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Whoa oh oh oh...ples!

Oh... whoa oh oh oh...

He played for whole days on his piano
He played classical music with note sheets
He played like a real pianist – Mozart, Chopin, Liszt
I've found a new song for him to play
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
Rock me, baby, this is nerve-wrecking
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
Rock me, baby, just make it danceable

Now every day I hear the sound of the old piano
This song which is played without note sheets
'Cause classical music is for listening and peace for the soul
And this song is played for dancing
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
Rock me, baby, this is nerve-wrecking
Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
Rock me, baby, just make it danceable

Whoa oh oh oh...
Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Rock me, baby, this is nerve-wrecking
(Ooh... rock, babe)
(Rock me, baby) Whoa oh oh oh...

Rock me, baby, it doesn't matter what
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Rock me, baby, just let it persist
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Rock me, baby, just make it danceable
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Just make it dancebale
(Ooh... rock, rock, rock)
Just make it...
(Ooh... rock, babe)
Whoa oh oh oh...danceable!
