My mama told me she didn`t like that rock and roll
I said, `Please, Mama, please, Mama you just don`t know I don`t want
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes`
You know I get that feelin` ev`ry time I hear those blues
shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

That music`s got a beat that will keep you alive
The kids are rock and rollin` from 8 to 25
I don`t want (shoop-bop, shoop-bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes
Because I get that feelin` ev`ry time I hear those blues
shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Yes, I will do my homework
Clean the yard ev`ry day
Yes, I will wipe those dishes
I`ll do anything you say

They say that rock and roll will soon fade away
No matter what they say, rock and roll is here to stay
I don`t want(shoop-bop, shoop-bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop)because my feet start movin` ev`ry time I hear those blues
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Let`s rock!

Let`s roll!

They say that rock and roll will soon fade away
No matter what they say, rock and roll is here to stay
I don`t want(shoop-bop, shoop-bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop) because I get that feelin` ev`ry time I hear those blues
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop)because my feet start movin` ev`ry time I hear those blues
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
(shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

(shoop-bop, shoop-bop
