Текст песни с переводом слов Beatles, the «Rock and roll music» из альбома «Beatles for sale» (1964).
Rock and roll music
Just let me hear some of that rock and roll music,
Any old way you choose it.
It's got a back beat you can't lose it,
Any old time you use it.
Gotta be rock and roll music,
If you wanna dance with me.
I got no kick against modern jazz
Unless it's out and played on too darn fast.
I lose the beauty of the melody
Until it sounded like a symphony.
That's why I go for that rock and roll music...
I took my loved one over cross the tracks,
And she could hear the man awailin' sax,
I must admit they had a rockin' band,
Man, they were blowin' like a hurrican'.
Way down south they had a jubilee,
Them Georgia folks, they had a jamboree,
They're drinkin' home brew from a wooden cup,
The folks were dancin' there, got all shook up.
And started playing that rock and roll music...
Don't care to hear them play a tango,
I'm in no mood to take a mambo,
It's way too early for the congo,
So keep a-rockin' that piano.
