Chuck Willis – Hang Up My Rock And Roll Shoes lyrics

Shoop-bop, shoop-bop
Shoop-bop, shoop-bop

My mama told me she didn't like that rock and roll
I said, "Please, mama, please, mama
You just don't know I don't want
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)"

"Hang up my rock and roll shoes
You know I get that feelin'
Every time I hear those blues
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)"

That music's got a beat that will keep you alive
The kids are rock and rollin' from 8 to 25
I don't want
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Hang up my rock and roll shoes
Because I get that feelin'
Every time I hear those blues
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Yes, I will do my homework
Clean the yard every day
Yes, I will wipe those dishes
I'll do anything you say

They say that rock and roll will soon fade away
No matter what they say, rock and roll is here to stay
I don't want
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Hang up my rock and roll shoes
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
Because my feet start movin'
Every time I hear those blues
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Let's rock
Let's roll

They say that rock and roll will soon fade away
No matter what they say, rock and roll is here to stay
I don't want
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

Hang up my rock and roll shoes
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
Because I get that feelin'
Every time I hear those blues

(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
Because my feet start movin'
Every time I hear those blues
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)
(Shoop-bop, shoop-bop)

    It meant just what it said: Most parents at the time didn't like the new music and tried to keep their kids away from it.
    There's no hidden meaning. Everything today has to have some hidden meaning.
    Back then music was just what it is supposed to be - fun. Not used for political purposes, protests, drug/sex promotion, etc.
