And so, trite though it may be, it's time to observe that we are the people our parents warned us about . . .

That is very true for me Setanta, I am my mother. Perhaps that is why I do not like Rap?

I don't like rap
'Cause it sounds so damned silly
Just to make it rhyme
They throw words out willy nilly
The sense means less
Than matching to the beat
The trite expressions
That constitute the meat
Of endless rants against
"Hoes," bitches and players
You bet the death of rap
Would answer all my prayers . . .

Joan Jett And The Blackhearts

I Love Rock N Roll
I saw him dancin' there by the record machine
I knew he must a been about seventeen
The beat was goin' strong
Playin' my favorite song
An' I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till he was with me, yeah me, singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

He smiled so I got up and' asked for his name
That don't matter, he said,
'Cause it's all the same

Said can I take you home where we can be alone

An' next we were movin' on
He was with me, yeah me

Next we were movin' on
He was with me, yeah me, singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me

Said can I take you home where we can be alone

An we'll be movin' on
An' singin' that same old song
Yeah with me, singin'

I love rock n' roll
So put another dime in the jukebox, baby
I love rock n' roll
So come an' take your time an' dance with me
Back

Chuck Berry
TITLE: Rock 'n' Roll Music
Lyrics and Chords


Just let me hear some of that
{Refrain}
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

(A7) / D - / / G - / D - / A7 - / - D / A7 D /

I have no kicks 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

/ A A7 / D - / G - / - A7 / - /

That's why I go for that
{Refrain}

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks
So she could hear my man a-wailin' sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man, they was blowin' like a hurrican'

That's why I go for that
{Refrain}

Way down South they gave a jubilee
I tell you folks, they had a jamboree
And drinkin' beer from a wooden cup
The folks who dancin' got all shook up

They started playin' that
{Refrain}

Don't care to hear them play tango
I'm in no mood to take a mambo
It's way too early for the congo
So keep on rockin that piano

That's why I go for that
{Refrain}

If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

My name is Jerry Lee Lewis, come from Louisiana
I'm gonna do you a little boogie on this here piano
Doing mighty fine, I'm gonna make you shake it
I'll make you do it and make you do it until you break it
It's called the Lewis boogie, in the Lewis way
Lord, I do my little boogie woogie every day

Well, down in New Orleans, the land of dreams
The best doggone place, son, you have ever seen
The cats go wild, do a boogie that's hot
My boogie woogie makes you want to stop and do the bop
It's called the Lewis boogie, in the Lewis way
Lord, I do my little boogie woogie every day

Aw,
Oh, boy!

Well, now let's cruise on down to old Memphis town
That's where that Presley boy said you ain't nothing but a hound
But now you take my boogie, it keeps you in the groove
Then your sacroiliac begins to shiver and a move
It's called the Lewis boogie, in the Lewis way
Lord, I do my little boogie woogie every day

Oh, boogie woogie
When your hips start rockin'
And your knees start knockin'
Lewis boogie, Lewis way
Lord, I do my little boogie woogie every day

Oh, Julie

ah, ah, ah

Oh, Julie

ah, ah, ah

Oh-uh-oh-uh-oh Julie
You'll never know how I love yo-ou-ou
Oh-uh-oh-uh-oh Julie
A teenage dream that can't come true

I see-ee you Julie
Each day as you walk by-y-y
But maybe some day, Julie
I'll be the apple of your eye

Although you're older than me, it makes no difference, you see
As you are my shining sta-ar
You've heard of passion for love and jealousy, my dove
Well, that's the way I feel about you

I nee-eed you, Julie
You'll never know how my heart yea-ea-earns
Oh, please, please help me
My love just burns and burns

But some day, Julie
When I'm as old as yo-ou-ou
I'll take you, Julie
And make my dreams come true

But some day, Julie
When I'm as old as yo-ou-ou
I'll take you, Julie
And make my dreams come true

Willie Broonzy --

I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running;
Walking is most too slow.

I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
You know you haven't done nothing,
Drove a good man away from home.

When the moon peeks over the mountains
I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this old highway
Until the break of day.

Oh give me one, one more kiss mama
Just before I go,
'Cause when I leave this time you know I,
I won't be back no more.

The Girl Can't Help It (B. Troup) - sung by Little Richard

She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
If she walks by, the men folks get engrossed,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
If she winks an eye, the bread slice turn to toast,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
If she got a lot, of what they call the most,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
The girl can't help it, she was born to please,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
And if she's got, a figure made to squeeze,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
Won't you kindly be aware, the girl can't help it,
The girl can't help it,
If she mesmerizes, every mother's son,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
If she's smiling, beefsteak become well done,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
She makes grand pa feel like twenty one,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
The girl can't help it, she was born to please,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
And if I go to her, on bended knees,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it,
Won't you kindly be aware, that I can't help it,
I can't help it,
Because I'm hoping, obviously,
That some day, the answer would be,
The girl can't help it, she's in love with me,
She can't help it, the girl can't help it.

The Platters

They asked me how I knew my true love was true
I of course replied "something here inside cannot be denied"
They said "someday you'll find all who love are blind"
When your heart's on fire, you must realize smoke gets in your eyes
So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed to think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love has flown away, I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say "when a lovely flame dies, smoke gets in your eyes"

Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes

Smoke-gets-in-your-EYES

If you have not guessed it yet edgarblythe I am at a sock hop!!!! And now the record player - no DJs then plays a slow one.

You broke my will
It's such a thrill . . .


You two are a pure dee hoot, glad yer enjoyin' yerselves . . .

Does she love me with all her heart?
Should I worry when we're apart?
It's a lover's question I'd like to know

Does she need me as she pretends?
Is this a game, well then will I win?
It's a lover's question I'd like to know

I'd like to know when she's not with me
Is she still true to me?
I'd like to know when we're kissin'
Does she feel just what I feel and
How am I to know it's really real?

Oh tell me where the answer lies
Is it in her kiss or in her eyes?
It's a lover's question I'd like to know

I'd like to know, I'd like to know . . .

Righto, Jerry Lee always gets everyone dancing

The Loco-Motion
Little Eva

Everybody's doin' a brand-new dance, now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
My little baby sister can do it with me;
It's easier than learning your A-B-C's,
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me.
You gotta swing your hips, now. Come on, baby.
Jump up. Jump back. Well, now, I think you've got the knack.

Now that you can do it, let's make a chain, now.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control:
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul.
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me.

Move around the floor in a Loco-motion.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
Do it holding hands if you get the notion.
(Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
There's never been a dance that's so easy to do.
It even makes you happy when you're feeling blue,
So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me.

Bah-bah-bah-bah, bah-bah-bah-bah
Bah-bah-bah-bah. bah-bah-bah-bah, at the hop!

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
You can stop and you can stroll it at the hop

You *chalypso* when you chicken at the hop
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop

You can really start to move it at the hop
Where the jockey is the smoothest
And the music is the coolest at the hop
All the cats and chicks can get their kicks at the hop
Let's go!
