"Story of Rock and Roll" as written by and Harry Edward Nilsson....
Well it started out way down south
Took a left turn, headed on out
It was moving around very slowly
Cuz it was traveling by word of mouth
Made a short stop at the oldies
Then it headed for the New York scene
And the people there, they dug on it
Cuz they found out just what it means, yeah

To have rock n roll music
Sweet groovy music
Well it's the only kind of music yeah
That reaches right to your soul

An' come a guitar picking fella
And when he took it by the hand
He said now listen to me everybody
I got a message that you gotta understand
And then he took that brand new music
And he led it 'cross the U.S. of A.
And now some folks laughed when they heard that sound
But it looks like its here to stay

Yeah they called it rock n roll music
Sweet groovy music
And it's the only kind of music yeah
That reaches right to your soul

Rock n roll music (x10)
