written and performed by Chuck Berry
Up in the mornin' and off to school
The teacher is teachin' the golden rule
American hist'ry and practical math
You're studyin' hard, hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone
Ring ring, goes the bell
The cook in the lunchroom's ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom, open your books
Bet the teacher don't know how mean she looks
Soon as 3:00 rolls around
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat
Down the halls and into the street
Up through the corner and round the bend
Right to the juke joint you go in
Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear somethin' that's really hot
With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you've been wantin' to dance
Feelin' the music from head to toe
Round and round and round you go
(instrumental, same pattern as verses)
(repeat verse 4)
Hail, hail, rock 'n' roll!
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock 'n' roll
The beat of the drums loud and bold
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll
The feelin' is there, body and soul
Up in the morning and off to school
the teacher is teaching the golden role.
American history and pracitcal math
you study them hard, hoping to pass
working your fingers right down to the bone
the guy behind you won´t leave you alone.
Ring, ring,ring goes the bell
the cook in the lunchroom is ready to sell
you´re lucky if you can find a seat
you´re fortunate if you have time to eat.
Back in the classroom open your books
keep it the teacher don´t know how mean she looks.
Soon as 3 o´clock rolls around
you finally lay your burdon down
close up your books get out of your seat
down the halls and in to the street
up to the corner and round the bend
right to the juke joint you go in.
Drop the coin right in to the slot
you gotta hear something that´s really hot
with the one you love you´re making romance
all day long you been wanting to dance
felling the music from head to toe
round and round, and round you go,go ,go....
Drop the coin right in........
Hail hail hail rock n roll
deliver me from the days of old
long live rock n roll
the felling of drums loud and bold
rock rock rock n roll
the felling is there body and soul
