CHUCK BERRY lyrics - Viva Rock And Roll

CHUCK BERRY
"Viva Rock And Roll"

Rock it, g'on jerk it, child, work it
Rock it, g'on take it, child, shake it
Rock it, oh singing the song
Viva, viva, rockin' along.

Grandma and Grandpa did the Charleston Rug
Aunt Mary and Uncle Joe, they did the Jitterbug
My sister used to do the Twist and Shout
But I'm with the Go-Go, I'm workin' on out.

Rock on, g'on jerk it, child, work it, child
Rock on, go 'head and shake it, I can take it
Rock on, oh my soul
Viva, viva, Rock and Roll.

Rock it, g'on jerk it, child, work it
Rock it, g'on take it, child, shake it
Rock on, oh my soul
Viva, viva, Rock and Roll.

My mother had my sister learning Bach and Strauss
For years it was the only music in our house
But I got my guitar and I rearranged Bach
And came up with some good old folk and country rock.

Rock on, go 'head and jerk it, child, work it
Rock on, go 'head and take it, I can shake it
Rock on, oh my soul
Viva, viva, Rock and Roll.
