STORY OF THE ROCKERS (Jim Pewter) Gene Vincent It started out with Haley's Comets A-rockin' round the clock Well, then along came Presley With some hillbilly rock, now Mix it in with Carl Perkins Chuck Berry when he's workin' And Little Richard out of Macon Inspired Jerry Lee to shakin' Slow down the tempo with the Fat Man (Fats Domino) Bring back the rhythm with Bo's band (Bo Diddley) Don and Phil and Eddie Cochran (Don & Phil = Everly Brothers) And Buddy Holly kept a-rockin' (Chorus) And that's the story of the rockers Yeah, who kept us dancin' Everybody was movin' And it looked (felt) so fine (Gene sings "looked, but Jim Pewter sang "felt") Yeah, you could feel the emotion As you looked around Sock it to me rockers Roll it down the line Jump back down to to Philly For a daily Bandstand Rock (Dick Clark's Bandstand) At The Hop with Danny's Juniors The Stroll was very hot now Rydell, Cannon and Dion sang (Bobby Rydell, Freddy cannon, Dion & The Belmonts) While Eddy's Rebels twanged on (Duane Eddy) Soon the world a-started twistin' With the Checker dance (Chubby Checker) The Four Seasons sang Sherry While Barry Gordy shopped the Champs Ike and Tina and a-Uncle Ray (Ray Charles) Along with Shannon's Runaway (Chorus) The West Coast started surfin' With the Beach Boy band Jan and Dean and the Surfaris Spread the songs throughout the land And soon the Beatles from a-Liverpool Electrified, began to rule Roll out the Stones with Satisfaction Mix in a bit of blues reaction Byrds and Spoonful got in motion With a very good time notion * Otis Redding and Revue Young Rascals attitude (Chorus) Chuck Willis, Lord Old Sam Cooke Sock it to me, yeah, Buddy Knox, Jimmy Bowen, Lloyd Price, Hey don't touch that dial, I ain't through I forgot somebody, Bobby Darin, Larry Williams, The Blue Caps... Here we go... (Fade) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle, Nancy, & Marijn Raaijmakers - September 2003)
