"Rock 'n' Roll Music" as written by and Jeff / Barry....
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat

You can't lose it

Any old time you use it
It's gotta be
Rock and roll music

If you wanna dance with me
If you wanna dance with me.
I've got no kick against modern jazz

Unless they try to play it too darn fast.
And change the beauty of the melody
Until they sound just like a symphony

That's why I go for that
Rock and roll music
I took my loved one over 'cross the tracks

So she can hear man awail a sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man
They were goin' like a hurrican'
That's why I go for that
Rock and roll music
'Way down south they grave a jubilee

The jokey folks they had a jamboree

They're drinkin' homebrew from a water cup
The folks dancin' got all shook up
And started playin' that
Rock and roll music
Don't care to hear 'em play a tango

I'm in the mood to hear a mambo

It's 'way too early for a congo

So keep a-rockin' that piano

So I can hear some of that
Rock and roll music

    General CommentOne of the Beach Boys' rare good songs from their 'forgettable period' from roughly '67 to '80. Perhaps this is because it's a Chuck Berry cover, and it takes effort to screw up Berry's music. "Rock-n-Roll Music" charted at #5 in 1976, making it their first new big hit since "Good Vibrations" way back when they still churned out good music in the 60s. One of their really good post-'golden era' songs.
