Hang up My Rock'n Roll Shoes


Written by Chuck Willis. Album: Rock of Ages
The lyrics are copyrighted. Please do not copy or redistribute.


Mama, she done told me
She didn't like this rock and roll
But mama, mama, please
Mama, you just don't know
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes 
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes
I get an old time feeling
Every time I hear the blues

They told me, "Get a job
And set yourself a goal"
But can't they understand
I just want to rock and roll
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes 
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes
Something happens to me
Every time I hear the blues

I will do my homework
I'll clean the yard every day
I will even do the dishes
I'll do anything you say

That say that rock and roll
It'll soon fade away
But I just want to tell you
Rock and roll is here to stay
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes 
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes
I get a good time feeling
Every time I hear the blues

Some might even say
It put the devil in my soul
But that's a bunch of shit
I just want to rock and roll
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes 
I don't want to hang up my rock and roll shoes
My feets got to move now
Every time I hear the blues
