Lyrics


Rock`n`roll music just, let me hear some of that rock 'n' 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 'n' roll music

If you wanna dance with me [Repeat: x1]


I have no kick against modern jazz

Unless they try to play it too darn fast

And change the beauty of the melody

Until it sounds just like a symphony

That's why I go for that rock 'n' 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 'n' roll music

If you wanna dance with me[Repeat: x1]


I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks

So she could her my man a whalin' sax

I must admit they have a rockin' band

Man they were goin' like a hurricane

That's why I go for that rock 'n' 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 - roll music

If you wanna dance with me [Repeat: x1]


Way down South they gave a jubilee

Them country folks they had a jamboree

They're drinkin' home, brew from a wooden cup

The folks dancin' got all shook up

And started playin' that rock 'n' 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 - roll music

If you wanna dance with me [Repeat: x1]


Don't care to hear 'em play the tango

I'm in no mood to dig a mambo

It's way too early for the congo

So keep a, rockin' that piano

So I can hear some of that rock 'n' 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 'n' roll music

If you wanna dance with me [Repeat: x1]
