Intro: E7 (ĮĮĮĮ)


†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A7

To me that a modern rock and roll music

Any old way you choose it

†††††††††††††††† D7

Itís got a back beat you canít lose it

A7

Any old time you use it

†††††††††††††††††††††† E7

Itís got to be rock and roll music

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

If you want to dance with me

E7†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

If you want to dance with me

 

†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††E7

I got no kick against modern jazz

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A7

Unless itís out and played on too darn fast

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D7

I lose the beauty of the melody

†††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††E7

Until it sounded like a symphony

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A7

Thatís why I go with that rock and roll music

Any old way you choose it

Itís got a back beat you canít lose it

Any old time you use it

Itís got to be rock and roll music

If you want to dance with me,

If you want to dance with me.

 

I took my love one over across the tracks

Where she could have been man, a wail of a sax

I must admit they had a rockiní band

Man, they were going like a hurricane

 

Thatís why I go by that rock and roll music

Any old way you choose it

Itís got a back beat you canít lose it

Any old time you use it

Itís 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

They go to vote to have a janboree

They took it home a wooden cup

The folks that dancing where all shook up

 

Thatís how great that rock and roll music.

Any old way you choose it

Itís got a back beat you canít lose it

Any old time you use it

Itís got to be rock and roll music

If you want to dance with me

If you want to dance with me

 

Go get to hear them play a tango

And in the mood they take a mambo

If itís what to you want a congo

So give a rock and roll beat I know

 

Thatís why I go for rock and roll music

Any old way you choose it

Itís got a back beat you canít lose it

Any old time you use it

Itís got to be rock and roll music

If you want to dance with me

If you want to dance with me
