"That Is Rock and Roll" as written by and Leiber/stoller....
In the beginning, there weren't nothin' but rocks
Then somebody invented the wheel
And things just began to roll!

Did you ever hear a tenor sax
Swingin' like a rusty axe?
Honkin' like a frog
Down in a hollow log?
Baby, that is rock and roll

Did you ever hear a guitar twang
Jingy, jingy, jingy, jang?
Ever hear those strings
Doin' crazy things?
Baby, that is rock and roll

That ain't no freight train that you hear
Rollin' down the railroad tracks
That's a country boy piano man
Playin' in-between the cracks

You say that music's for the birds
You can't understand the words?
Well, honey, if you did
You'd really blow your lid
'Cause, baby, that is rock and roll

That ain't no freight train that you hear
Rollin' down the railroad tracks
That's a country-boy piano man
Playin' in between the cracks

You say that music's for the birds
And you can't understand the words?
Well, honey, if you did
You'd really blow your lid
'Cause, baby, that is rock and roll (in the mornin')
Baby, that is rock and roll (in the evenin')
Baby, that is rock and roll
