Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll to Me" is a song by British rock band Smokie. It was released in early September 1975 as a single and appeared later on the album Changing All the Time. Like the band's previous two singles "Pass It Around" and "If You Think You Know How to Love Me", the song was composed by Nicky Chinn, Mike Chapman. The acoustic guitar riff in "Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll to Me" is believed to be adopted from the Elvis Presley hit "His Latest Flame".
On 22 September 1975, Smokey released their second album, Changing All the Time. The first single from the new album, "If You Think You Know How to Love Me", became a hit in many European countries, peaking at No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart. They followed it with "Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll to Me". Around this time, Smokey Robinson threatened to file a lawsuit, alleging that the band's name would confuse the audience.

But your rock’n’roll is getting out of time, to me, Go sing your lines to someone else, that someone else may be, The fool you always thought you saw in me. So, don’t play your rock’n’roll to me, That ain’t the way it’s meant to be, I ain’t so blind that I can’t see, Just let it lie, let it be. So, don’t play your Rock n’ Roll, no, Don’t play your Rock n’ Roll, no, Don’t play your Rock n’ Roll to me. Just let it lie, let it be. Не играй мне свой рок-н-ролл .
