ROCK-A-BOP
(Barbara Morgan)
SPARKLE MOORE (Fraternity 751, 1956)

You take a rock and a bop, well it's really neat
And you put it together with a rock-a-bop beat
Hey Joe, hey Joe
You're gonna do the rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
You're gonna swing your feet to that rhythm
Ever stop, stop, rock-a-bop

I said rock-a-bop , rock-a-bop
I said rock-a-bop with me
C'mon and rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
C'mon and rock-a-bop with me
You're gonna swing your feet to that rhythm
Ever stop, stop, rock-a-bop
(Yeah, rock-a-baby!)

Oh well, here he comes, so you better look out
He is gonna sing and dance and even shout
Hey-hey Charly, hey-hey Charly
You're gonna do the rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
You're gonnna rattle your bones
And start them revved up moans
Oh, rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop

I said rock, mm-mm-mm, a-bop
You're gonna rock-a-bop with me
Well, rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
C'mon and rock-a-bop with me
You're gonnna rattle your bones
And try them revved up moans
Oh, rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
(Oooh-ooh)

Well, don't be bothered about your knees
They will be doin' just what they please
Hey Willie, hey Willie
You're gonna do the rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
Hey, you lost your shoes
Well, then that ain't news
With the rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop

Well, rock, I'm gonna rock baby
Rock-a-bop with me
Please rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
I said, rock-a-bop with me
You're gonna lose your shoes
But then the whole of your blues
With the rock-a-bop, rock-a-bop
