Liner Notes: 

I collaborated with cts' Jelly Factory a few years ago and it was unbelievably fun. Craig wrote these wonderfully anachronistic rock 'n roll lyrics and asked me to do the music. I also added the echo'd words and a few passing oh's and and's. Thanks, Craig!

Lyrics: 

Let's Rock 'n Roll

Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
Let's rock n' roll (Let's rock n' roll)
Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
(oh) Let's rock n' roll. (Let's rock n' roll)
Let's move it to the rhythm
Till the back-door hits 'em
Let's rock, rock n' roll

We're having a good time
And we're dancing to the music
The band ain't half bad
And we can all dance to it
The bartender's witty
The server's rather cute
The mood is hot n' vibrant
I got plenty of loot

Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
Let's rock n' roll (Let's rock n' roll)
Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
Let's rock n' roll. (Let's rock n' roll)
Let's move it to the rhythm
Till the back-door hits 'em
Let's rock, rock n' roll

Bar hopping in the city
Road housing in the town
Gallivanting in the backwoods
Everywhere we hear the sound
Rhythm n' blues and the Honkytonk
Deep soul and the Hard Rock
All good for the gettin' down
Here's hoping it never stops

Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
Let's rock n' roll (Let's rock n' roll)
Hey, hey everybody (Hey, hey everybody)
Let's rock n' roll. (Let's rock n' roll)
Let's move to the rhythm
Till the back-door hits 'em
Let's rock, rock n' roll

GUITAR SOLO/VAMP
Let's rock
Let's roll
Let's boogie
Let's go
Let's dance
Let's do it
Keep movin' to the music



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Cool Rock 'n Roll tune, classic lyrics that are brought to music very well. I liked the rhythm hits 'em rhyme quite a bit, especially because I was bracing myself for a Roll/Soul rhyme, so I was happy it was something more clever. Fun song!

Haha! This is GREAT! You have definitely captured the vibe of good old-fashioned rock and roll.

I'm glad I dug back through your "back titles" and found this. Nice job, guys!
