THAT'S ROCK 'N' ROLL
(J. Rivers)
JOHNNY RIVERS (GUEST STAR LP 1964, Recorded 1958)

Well, all the cats get together to have a good time
You bring your girl and I'll bring mine
We'll all get together, we'll go to the hop
And all the cats start shakin' and a-doin' the bop
We do the walk, the fish, the chicken, the stroll
Mama, that's rock 'n' roll (that's rock 'n' roll)

Well, now on Saturday night, you got your homework done
Your mind's made up, you're gonna have some fun
You call your girl, you're gonna meet her at nine
Odds all set, you're gonna have a good time
You just can't help it when it's in your soul
Mama, that's rock 'n' roll (that's rock 'n' roll)

Well, you keep reelin' and rockin', 'cause you're feelin' alright
If the band wouldn't stop, you know you'd rock all night
You know it's alright, you're hurtin' no one
Just gettin' your kicks, just havin' some fun
Some people don't like it, 'cause they don't understand
They don't know what it's like to hear a rockin' band
They forgot about the time when they were young
About the things they did and the songs they sung
But now we got something both young and old
Mama, that's rock 'n' roll (that's rock 'n' roll)
[Oh, rock it now, yeah!]

[Oh, let's git it now!]

Well, you keep reelin' and rockin', you're feelin' alright
If the band wouldn't stop, you know you'd rock all night
You know it's alright, you're hurtin' no one
Just gettin' your kicks, just havin' some fun
Some people don't like it, 'cause they don't understand
They don't know what it's like to hear a rockin' band
They forgot about the time when they were young
About the things they did and the songs they sung
But now we got something both young and old
Mama, that's rock 'n' roll
