She was just sixteen and all alone When I came to be So we grew up together My mama child and me Now things were bad and she was scared But whenever I would cry She'd calm my fears and dry my tears With a rock and roll lullaby And she would sing sha na na na na na na na It will be all right sha na na na na na Sha na na na na na na na Now just hold on tight Sing it to me mama (mama mama ma) Sing it sweet and clear, oh! Mama let me hear that old rock and roll lullaby We made it through the lonely days But Lord the nights were long And we'd dream of better moments When mama sang her song Now I can't recall the words at all It don't make sense to try 'Cause I just knew lots of love came through In that rock and roll lullaby
