[Verse 1] Well I'mma write a little letter I'm gonna mail it to my local DJ Yeah it's a jumping little record I want my jockey to play Roll over Beethoven, I gotta hear it again today [Verse 2] You know, my temperature's rising And the jukebox blows a fuse My heart's beating rhythm And my soul keeps singing the blues Roll over Beethoven And tell Tchaikovsky the news [Verse 3] I got the rocking pneumonia I need a shot of rhythm and blues I caught the rolling arthritis Sitting down at the rhythm revue Roll over Beethoven Rocking in two by two [Bridge] Well, if you feel you like it Go get your lover, then reel and rock it Roll it over and move on up just A trifle further and reel and rock with One another Roll over Beethoven Dig this rhythm and blues [Verse 4] Well, early in the morning I'm giving you my warning Don't you step on my blue suede shoes Hey diddle diddle, I'mma play my fiddle Ain't got nothing to lose Roll over Beethoven And tell Tchaikovsky the news [Verse 5] You know she wiggles like a glow worm Dance like a spinning top She got a crazy partner You oughta see him reel and rock Long as she got a dime the music will never stop [Outro] Roll over Beethoven Roll over Beethoven Roll over Beethoven Roll over Beethoven Roll over Beethoven and dig this rhythm and blues
