Chuck Berry

WE'RE GONNA WRITE A LITTLE LETTER,
GONNA MAIL IT TO MY LOCAL DJ
IT'S A ROCKIN' LITTLE RECORD
I WANT MY JOCKEY TO PLAY.
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
YER GOTTA HEAR IT AGAIN TODAY.

YOU KNOW MY TEMPERATURE'S RISIN'
AND THE JUKEBOX BLOWS A FUSE.
MY HEART'S BEATIN' RHYTHM
AND MY SOUL KEEPS A-SINGIN' THE BLUES.
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN
AND TELL TCHAIKOVSKY THE NEWS.

I'VE GOT A ROCKIN' PNEUMONIA,
I NEED A SHOT OF RHYTHM AND BLUES -OO-.
I THINK I CAUGHT AN ARTHRITIS
SITTIN' DOWN BY THE RHYTHM REVIEWS.
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
A-ROCKIN' IN TWO BY TWO.

WELL, IF YOU FEEL IT 'N' LIKE IT,
GO GET YOUR LOVER AND REEL AND ROCK IT,
ROLL IT OVER AND MOVE ON UP JUST A TRIFLE FURTHER
AND A-REEL AND ROCK IT, ROLL IT OVER.
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
ROCKIN' IN TWO BY TWO.

-OO-

EARLY IN THE MORNIN' I'M A-GIVIN' YOU THE WARNIN',
DON'T YOU STEP ON MY BLUE SUEDE SHOES!
HEY DIDDLE, DIDDLE, I'M A-PLAYIN' MY FIDDLE,
AIN'T GOT NOTHIN' TO LOSE.
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN
AND TELL TCHAIKOVSKY THE NEWS.

YOU KNOW SHE WINKS LIKE A GLOW-WORM,
DANCE LIKE A SPINNIN' TOP.
SHE'S GOT A CRAZY PARTNER,
OUGHT TO SEE 'EM REEL AND ROCK.
LONG AS SHE'S GOT A DIME,
THE MUSIC WILL NEVER STOP.

ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN,
DIG TO THESE RHYTHM AND BLUES!
