Rock and Roll Lullaby
She was just sixteen and all alone
When I came to be
So we grew up together
My mama-child and me

Now things were bad and she was scared
But whenever I would cry
She'd calm my fears and dry my tears
With a rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na
It'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na
Just hold on tight

Sing it to me, mama
(Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, it'll be all right)
My, my, my, my mama
Sing it sweet and clear
(Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, just hold on tight)
Oh mama, let me hear that old rock and roll lullaby

We made it through the lonely days
But, Lord, the nights were long
And we'd dream of better mornin's
When mama sang a song

Now I can't recall the words at all
It don't make sense to try
Cause I just knew lotsa love came through
In that rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na
It'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na
Just hold on tight

I can hear ya, mama
(Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, it'll be all right)
My, my, my, my mama
Nothing moves my soul
(Sha-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, just hold on tight)
Like the sound of a good old rock and roll lullaby

It'll be alright
Just hold on tight
My, my, my, my mama
Nothing moves my soul
Like the sound of a good old rock and roll lullaby
