"Roll Over Beethoven" as written by and Chuck Berry....
Gonna write a little letter, gonna mail it to my local D.J.
It's a jumping little record I want my jockey to play
Roll Over Beethoven
Gotta hear it again today.

My temperature's rising, the juke box's blowing a fuse
My heart's beating a rhythm, singing out rhythm & blues
Roll Over Beethoven
They're rocking in two by two.

CHORUS
Well, if you feel you like it
Go get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up now
Go for cover and reel and rock it
Roll it over
Roll Over Beethoven, tell Tchaikovsky the news.

Early in the morning I'm giving you my warning
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey, diddle diddle, gonna play my fiddle
I ain't got nothing to lose
Roll Over Beethoven, tell Tchaikovsky the news.

She wiggles like a glow worm, dances like a spinning top
She got a crazy partner, you should of seen her reel & rock
Long as she got a dime
The music will never stop.

REPEAT CHORUS

Roll Over Beethoven, Roll Over Beethoven
Roll Over Beethoven, Roll Over Beethoven
Roll Over Beethoven, dig these rhythm & blues

    General CommentI agree.

    "Roll Over Beethoven" has more covers than any other song I've ever seen, and this one is by far my favorite. Far better than Chuck Berry's original, in my opinion.
