"Roll Over Beethoven (Chuck Berry cover)" as written by and Chuck Berry....
Well gonna write a little letter
Gonna mail it to my local D.J.
It's a rockin' little record
I want my jockey to play
Roll over Beethoven
I gotta hear it again today
You know my temperature's risin'
And the jukebox's blowin' a fuse
My hearts beatin' rhythm
And my soul keeps singing the blues
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news
I got a rockin' pneumonia
I need a shot of rhythm and blues
I think I got it off the writer
Sittin' down by the rhythm review
Roll over Beethoven
We're rockin' in two by two
Well if you fell you like it
Well get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up
Just jump around and reel and rock it
Roll it over
Roll over Beethoven
A rockin' in two by two, oh
Well early in the mornin'
I'm a givin' you the warnin'
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey little little
Gonna play my fiddle
Ain't got nothing to lost
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news
You know she winks like a glow worm
Dance like a spinnin' top
She got a crazy partner
Oughta see 'em reel an rock
Long as she's 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

    General CommentMany Brittish rock bands were huge fans of Chuck Berry, hence his songs being covered by many english rock bands...

    General Commentthough looking at these lyrics, they're probably different, it's still obviously from the Beatles one.

    General CommentGood lord! John Lennon? It's a Chuck Berry song. George Harrison sang the Beatles version.

    General CommentWell, I don't really know, but Electric Light Orchestra did the same song (probably from the Beatles, ELO was influenced by them)

    General CommentApparently, everyone's done a cover of this song. But it was Chuck Berry, originally.

    The Electric Light Orchestra's version is the best, in my opinion.
