Rip It up


Go on Out to the groovy sky
I don't care if I spent my dough
Tonight I'm gonna be one happy soul

Gonna rock it up
Gonna shake it up
Gonna load it up
Whoah, at the ball tonight


Shake, Rattle and Roll


Rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you never do nothing
To save your doggone soul

Well get out of that kitchen
And shake those pots and pans
I said get out of that kitchen
And shake those pots and pans
I said to my soul
You're the devil in a frying pan

Well I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you never do nothing
To save your doggone soul


Blue Suede Shoes


You can knock me down
Step on my face
Slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you want to do
But oh oh honey
Lay off them shoes

Now don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well you can do anything
But lay off of them blue suede shoes

Ah go!

You can burn my house
Steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar
Do anything that you want to do
But ah ah honey
Lay off them shoes

And don't you step on my blue suede shoes, please
Well you can do anything
But lay off of them blue suede shoes

Ah go, hit it, Carl!

Well blue blue
Blue suede shoes
Yeah blue blue
Blue suede shoes
Babe blue blue
Blue suede shoes
Yeah brown brown
Brown suede boots
Well do anything
But lay off of them blue suede shoes
