Lyrics For: Roll Over Beethoven

By: Chuck Berry

 

Iím gonna write a little letter,
Gonna mail it to my local dj.
Itís a rockiní rhythm record
I want my jockey to play.
Roll over beethoven, I gotta hear it again today.

You know, my temperatureís risiní
And the jukebox blows a fuse.
My heartís beatiní rhythm
And my soul keeps on singiní the blues.
Roll over beethoven and tell tschaikowsky the news.

I got the rockiní pneumonia,
I need a shot of rhythm and blues.
I think Iím rolliní arthiritis
Sittiní down by the rhythm review.
Roll over beethoven rockiní in two by two.

Well, if you feel you like it
Go get your lover, then reel and rock it.
Roll it over and move on up just
A trifle further and reel and rock it,
Roll it over,
Roll over beethoven rockiní in two by two.

Well, early in the morniní Iím a-giviní you a warniní
Donít you step on my blue suede shoes.
Hey diddle diddle, I am playiní my fiddle,
Ainít got nothiní to lose.
Roll over beethoven and tell tschaikowsky the news.

You know she wiggles like a glow worm,
Dance like a spinniní top.
She got a crazy partner,
Oughta see íem reel and rock.
Long as she got a dime the music will never stop.

Roll over beethoven,
Roll over beethoven,
Roll over beethoven,
Roll over beethoven,
Roll over beethoven and dig these rhythm and blues
