Rock and Roll Music

Music & Lyrics by Garland Jeffreys

From the album The King of In Between (Luna Park Records, 2011)

 

When the day comes

And I’m sixty-four

I won’t be one of those guys

Who falls on the floor

But if it so happens

I’ll pick myself up

And dust myself off

And listen some more

 

To the rock and roll music

Rock and roll music

Rock and roll music

Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock on

 

When I’m feelin’ low

After reading the news

I usually listen

To my rhythm and blues

It brings me right up

Nothin’ to lose

It fills me right up

Like I’m lightin’ a fuse

 

Rock and roll music

Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock on

 

I been with you now

For a pretty long time

Nothin’s ever perfect

But I’m lucky that I’m

And when I start to think

That I’m losin’ my mind

I get out my turntable

And listen to my

 

Rock and roll music

Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock on

 

Paradin’ through town

And I’m singin’ a song

Some people think I’m crazy

But I’m movin’ right along

In the days of wine and roses

When I was under the spell

I only dreamed of days like this

Now I’m doin’ pretty well

 

Rock and roll music

Rock rock rock rock rock rock rock rock on
