Well, I'm a write a little letter
Gonna mail it to my local DJ
Yes, it's a jumpin' little record
I want my jockey to play.

Roll over Beethoven
I gotta hear it again today
You know my temperature's risin'
And a jukebox blowin' a fuse.

My heart's a beatin' rhythm
And my soul keeps a singin' the blues
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news.

We got the rockin' pneumonia
We need a shot of rhythm and blues
We caught the rollin' arthritis
Sittin' down at a rhythm review.

Roll over Beethoven
They're rockin' in two by two
Well, if you feel you like it go get your lover
Then reel and rock it, roll it over.

Then move on up just a trifle further
Then reel and rock with one another
Roll over Beethoven
Dig these rhythm and blues.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, early in the mornin'
And I'm givin' you my warnin'
Don't you step on
My blue suede shoes.

Hey diddle, diddle, I'm a playin' my fiddle
Ain't got nothin' to lose
Roll over Beethovenand
Tell Tchaikovsky the news.

You know she wiggles like a glow worm
Dance like a spinnin' top
She got a crazy little partner
You oughta see 'em reel and rock.

Long as she's got a dime
They must won't ever stop
Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven.

Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
And dig these rhythm and blues.

--- Instrumental ---

Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven, roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
And dig these rhythm and blues...
