My grandma and my grandpa did the Charleston Rug
Aunt Mary and Uncle Joe, they did the Jitterbug
My sister used to do the Twist and Shout
But I'm with the Go-Go, I'm workin' out

Rock on, hey jerk it, child, work it
Rock on, go ahead and shake it
I can take it
Rock on, oh, my soul
Viva viva rock and roll
Rock and roll

My mother and my sister learning Bach and Strauss
For years it was the only music in our house
I got my guitar and I rearranged Bach
And came up with some good old folk and country rock

Rock on, hey jerk it, child, work it
Rock on, go ahead and shake it
I can take it
Rock on, oh, my soul
Viva viva
Rock and roll

I can take it
Rock on, oh, my soul
Viva viva
Rock and roll
Viva viva
Rock and roll
Viva viva
Rock and roll
