We-ell, we're gonna rock
To the rhythm and the blues tonight
Rock 'cause ev'rything's gonna be all right
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock to the rhythm and the blues

Well I got a little gal I call, Ollie Vee
Ollie Vee comes from Memphis, Memphis Tennessee
And tonight, we're gonna
Rock-a-rock around with Ollie Vee, Olli-olli Vee

Ollie Vee says she's gonna treat me right tonight
I'm gonna wear my blue suede shoes tonight
And tonight, we're gonna
Rock-a-rock around with Ollie Vee, Olli-olli Vee

We-ell, we're gonna rock
To the rhythm and the blues tonight
Rock 'cause ev'rything's gonna be all right
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock to the rhythm and the blues, go!

We-ell, we're gonna rock
To the rhythm and the blues tonight
Rock 'cause ev'rything's gonna be all right
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock to the rhythm and the blues

I'm gonna shout and a holla and a giggle tonight
I'm gonna shake it just a little in the middle of the night
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock-a-rock around with Ollie Vee, Olli-olli-Vee

Well I think Mr. Cop's on the beat tonight
He's tryin' to put a stop to me tonight
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock-a-rock around with Ollie Vee, Oll-olli-olli

We-ell, we're gonna rock
To the rhythm and the blues tonight
Rock 'cause ev'rything's gonna be all right
'Cause tonight, we're gonna
Rock to the rhythm and the blues

We-ell, we're gonna rock
To the rhythm and the blues tonight
Rock 'cause ev'rything's gonna be all right
'Cause tonight, well, we're gonna
Rock to the rhythm and the blues
