ROCK IT FOR ME Werner & Werner Ella Fitzgerald w Chick Webb & his Orch rec Nov 1st 1937 New York also- Mildred Bailey & her Orch '38 Trummy Young w Jimmie Lunceford & his Orch Oran "Hot Lips" Page I heard it came to town, A new kind of rhythm, Spread around, Sort of set you sizzlin', Now I'm all through with symphony, Oh, rock it for me! Every night You'll see all the nifties Plenty tight, Swingin' down the fifties, Now they're all through with symphony, Ho ho ho, rock it for me! Now it's true that once upon a time The opera was the thing, But today the rage is rhythm and rhyme, So won't you satisfy my soul With the rock and roll? You can't be tame While the band is playin'; It ain't no shame To keep your body swayin'! Beat it out in the minor key, Ho ho ho, rock it for me! Can't you hear me singin', la-la-la-la-la, While the band is swingin', Oh, Chick Webb's sockin' And the band is rockin', So send me lightly, politely, Brightly and slightly, Ho ho ho, rock it for me! Now I'm all through with this stuff they call symphony, Come on boys and sorta rock it for me! It's true that once upon a time The opera was the thing, But today the rage is rhythm and rhyme, So won't you satisfy my soul With the rock and roll? You can't be tame While the band is playin'; It ain't no shame To keep your body swayin'! Beat it out in the minor key, Oh rock it, Oh rock it, Say won't you rock it for me! Why even all the nifties, they don't want to hear any more symphony, I'm tellin' you Jack, you better get hip for yourself and rock it for me! (Contributed by Peter Akers - August 2008)
