ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC
(Chuck Berry)
CHUCK BERRY (Chess 1671, 1957)

Just let me hear some of that
Rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I've got no kick againt modern jazz
Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And change the beauty of the melody
Until they sounded like a symphony
That's why i go for that
Rock and roll music

I took my loved one over cross the tracks
So she can hear my man a-wail the sax
I must admit the have a rockin' band
Man they were going like a hurricane
That's why i go for that
Rock and roll music

Way down south they gave a jubilee
The jockey folks they had a jamboree
They're drinkin' homebrew from a wooden cup
The folks dancin' they all got shook up
And started playin' that
Rock and roll music

Don't care to hear 'em play a tango
I'm in the mood to dig a mambo
It's way to early for a congo
So keep a rockin' that piano
So i can hear some of that
Rock and roll music
