Lyrics
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 and roll music if you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.

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.

That's why I got 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 and roll music if you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.

I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks, so she can hear my man await a sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band, man they were goin' like a hurricane.

That's why I got 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 and roll music if you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.

Way down South they have a jubilee, the jockey folks they had a jamboree
They're drinking homebrew from a watercup, the folks are dancin', got all shook up.

And started playin' that rock and roll music, any old time you use 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 wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.

Don't care to hear them play a tango, I'm in the mood to take a mambo
It's way too early for the congo, so keep a-rockin' that piano.

That's why I got for that rock and roll music, any old way you use 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 wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.
