Just let me hear some of that rock 'n' roll music,
Any old way you choose it;
It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it,
Any old time you use it.
Well, it's gotta be rock 'n' roll music,
If you wanna dance with me,
If you wanna dance with me.

I got no kick against modern jazz,
Unless they try to play it too darn fast,
I miss the beauty of the melody,
Until it sounds just like a symphony;
That's why I go for that rock 'n' roll music,
Any old way you choose it,
It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it,
Any old time you use it.
Well, it's gotta be rock 'n' roll music,
If you wanna dance with me,
If you wanna dance with me.

Just let me hear some of that rock 'n' roll music,
Any old way you choose it;
It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it,
Any old time you use it.
Well, it's gotta be rock 'n' roll music,
If you wanna dance with me,
If you wanna dance with me.

Don't care to hear 'em play the tango,
I'm in no mood to dig a mambo,
Ya, it's way too early for the congo,
So keep a-rockin' that piano,
That's why I go for that rock 'n' roll music,
Any old way you choose it;
It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it,
Any old time you use it.
Well, it's gotta be rock 'n' roll music,
If you wanna dance with me,
If you wanna dance with me.
