I WANT A ROCK AND ROLL GUITAR (Richardson) Johnny Preston - 1959 SPOKEN:A ho ho ho......It was the night before Christmas and everthing was real quiet. So I thought I'd take myself a little walk at Christmas Eve Night. I was makin' it on down the street, when to my surprise I saw this little bitty cat with big old tears in his eyes. Now I could see he was standin' in front of this music store and looked real brought down. I could hear what he was sayin', he didn't know I was around...he say..... I want a rock an' roll guitar With a big bass string I want a rock an' roll guitar So I can play the thing I wanna be on t.v. Like a rock an' roll star I want Santa Claus to bring me A rock an' roll guitar SPOKEN: ha ha ha.....so-a I walked over to him-a 'cause I understand. I, I thought I'd cheer him up so I say, "Look-a-here little man, A-you don't want no rock an' roll guitar, you want a six gun like the Lone Ranger has, so you can run around sayin'-a hi ho Silver, Kimo sabe, and all that cowboy jazz. Or how would you like old Santa to bring you a little dump truck so you could go around a-dumpin' things".....And he say, "Man, I don't want no dumptruck, I want somethin' that swings".....He say..... I want a rock an' roll guitar With a big bass string I want a rock an' roll guitar So I can play that thing I wanna be on t.v. Like a rock an' roll star I want Santa Claus to bring me A rock an' roll guitar SPOKEN: Ha, ha, wait a minute there, wait a minute, hold on, hold on I say. I say, hold on there little fellow, ah why don't you be like the little chicks and cats and wish for a space helmet or a rocketship or something wild like that? And you know what he say? He say....."Look here dad, I don't want no plane or no train or nothin' square like that, that ain't the lick for me. Wwhen I awake this whole place is gonna shake, 'cause you know what I want under my Christmas tree!"....He say..... I want a rock an' roll guitar With a big bass string I want a rock an' roll guitar So I can play the thing I wanna be on t.v. Like a rock an' roll star I want Santa Claus to bring me A rock an' roll guitar Ho ho ho, crazy little fellow, crazy, yeah, say...FADE
