        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
        well any old time you use it
        It's gotta be rock and roll music
        Well if you wanna dance with me
        yeah, if you wanna dance with me


        I took my love on over across the tracks
        so she ....... heard a man a-wailin' sax
        I got said they had a rockin band
        well they were blowing like a hurricane

        And ...... playing 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
        Well if you wanna dance with me
        if you wanna dance with me

        I got no kick against modern jazz
        unless you try to play it too darn fast
        I lose the beauty of a melody
        until it sounds just like a symphony

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

        And Way down south they gave a jubilee
        and Georgia folks, they had a jamboree
        They're drinking home brew from a wooden cup
        the folks dancing got all shook up

        And started playing 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
        If you wanna dance with me
        if you wanna dance with me
