Lyrics

(Shoop bop shoop bop)
(Shoop bop shoop bop)

My momma told me, she didn't like that rock and roll
I said, please momma please, momma you just don't know
I don't want to (shoop bop shoop bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes (shoop bop shoop bop)
You know I get that feeling every time I hear those blues (shoop bop shoop bop)

That music got a beat that will keep you alive
The kids are rock and rolling from eight to twenty-five
I don't want to (shoop bop shoop bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes (shoop bop shoop bop)
Because I get that feeling every time I hear those blues (shoop bop shoop bop)

Yes I will do my homework, clean the yard everyday (shoop bop)
Yes I will dry 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 to (shoop bop shoop bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes (shoop bop shoop bop)
Because my feet start moving every time I hear those blues (shoop bop shoop bop)

Go now!

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 to (shoop bop shoop bop) hang up my rock and roll shoes (shoop bop shoop bop)
Because I get that feeling every time I hear those blues (shoop bop shoop bop)
Because my feet start moving every time I hear those blues (shoop bop shoop bop)
(Shoop bop shoop bop)
