"Rock And Roll Is King" as written by and Jeff / Lynne....
Listen everybody let me tell you 'bout the rock 'n' roll
Feel that rhythm and it's really gonna thrill your soul
She said come along with me, to a land of make believe
She said wamalama bamalama rock 'n' roll is king

She loves that rock 'n' roll and she plays it all night long
That's all she ever tells me when I call her on the telephone
She says feel that jumpin' beat, and git up on your feet
She says wamalama bamalama rock 'n' roll is king

[Chorus]
Oh let those guitars play
Play for me play for me
Oh let that song ring out
That's how it's meant to be

It rolls like a train that's comin' on down the track
She rolled over Beethoven and she gave Tchaikovsky back
She loves that drivin' beat, she goes dancin' on down the street
She said wamalama bamalama rock 'n' roll is king

[Chorus]

When she comes around and I'm listenin' to the radio
She says you can't do that 'cause all I wanna do is rock 'n' roll
Now here I'm gonna stay where that music starts to play
She says wamalama bamalama rock 'n' roll is king
She says wamalama bamalama rock 'n' roll is king

    General CommentOne of my least favorite ELO songs. Very lazy writing. I hate when artists say they want to "get back to basics." Usually it means "boring" because they're dry of ideas.

    I do like the little Buddy Holly-sounding ending.
