Rock 'n' Roll Is King
Well, listen, everybody, let me tell you 'bout the rock 'n' roll
Oh, feel that rhythm and it's really gonna thrill your soul
Mmm, come along with me to a land of make believe
She said, "Whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king."

She loves that rock 'n' roll, and she plays it all night long
Oh, that's all she ever tells me when I call her on the telephone
She says, "Feel that jumpin' beat, and a-get up on your feet."
She says, "Whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king."

Oh, let those guitars play,
Play for me, play for me
Oh, let that song ring out
That's how it's meant to be.

Well, it rolls like a train that's a-comin' on down the track
She rolled over Beethoven and she gave Tchaikovsky back
Oh, she loves that drivin' beat, she goes dancin' on down the street
She said, "Whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king."

Oh, rock on!

Oh, let those guitars play,
Play for me, play for me
Oh, let that song ring out
That's how it's meant to be.

Well, when she comes around and I'm listenin' to the radio
She says, "You can't do that, 'cause all I wanna do is rock 'n' roll."
Now here I'm gonna stay where that music starts to play
She says, "Whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king
Oh, yeah, whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king
Oh, oh, whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king
Ooh, yeah, whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king."
She said, "Whamalamabamalama rock 'n' roll is king."
