Rock and Roll music - The Beatles

1. Refrain   

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 roll music 

if you wanna dance with me, if you wanna dance with me.

 

1. Strophe

I've got no kick against modern jazz

unless they try to play it too darn fast.

And lose the beauty of the melody,

until they sound just like a symphony.

 

2. Refrain

That's why I go for 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 roll music 

if you wanna dance with me, if you wanna dance with me.

 

2. Strophe

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks

so she can hear my man a'wail a sax.

I must admit they had a rockin' band,

man, they were goin' like a hurricane.

 

3. Refrain

That's why I go for 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 roll music 

if you wanna dance with me, if you wanna dance with me.

 

3. Strophe

Way down South they had a jubilee,

them Georgia folks they had a jamboree.

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

The folks dancin' got all shook up.

 

4. Refrain

That's why I go for 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 roll music 

if you wanna dance with me, if you wanna dance with me.

 

4. Strophe

Don't care to hear 'em play a tango.

I'm in the mood to take a mambo,

it's way to early for a congo.

So keep a rockin' that piano.

 

Coda

That's why I go for 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 roll music 

if you wanna dance with me, if you wanna dance with me.
