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 got to be rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to 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 go for that 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 got to be rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I took my loved one over across the tracks
So she can hear my man a wailin’ sax
I must admit they have a rocking band
Man, they were blowing like a hurricane

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 got to be rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Way down South they had a jubilee
Them Georgia folks they had a jamboree
They’re drinking home brew from a wooden cup
The folks dancing there are all shook up

And started playing 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
Got to be rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Don’t care to hear them play a tango
And In The Mood they take a mambo
It’s way to early for a Congo
So keep a rocking that piano

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
Oh, you got rock ‘n roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me
