Recorded NYC Jun 11, 1958 King Single #5142
With Ernie Hayes-piano, George Barnis & Kenny Burrel-guitar
Bill Pemberton-bass, David 'Panama' Francis-drums
Lowell 'Count Hastings-tenor sax.

Chorus Intro:
Rock-rock, do-wop-bop-bop-bop
Rock-rock, do-wop-bop-bop-bop

Let's rock, baby baby, let's roll
Let's bop to satisfy our soul
A-don't wait 'till we old an' gray
A-let's rock baby, right away
An' listen to me like you know you should
Now let's rock (oh yeah) while the rockin's good

Let's dance baby baby, let's hop
A-clap your hands an' do the new style bop
A-let's mambo to the bongo drums
A-do the cha-cha it's a lot of fun
A-listen to me like you know you should
Now let's rock (oh yeah) while the rock is good

A-while we're young an' a-spring is sprung
Let's go moonlight strollin'
'Cause once you're old an' your blood gets cold
Say, no more rockin' an-a rollin'

Let's swing, baby baby, let's shout
An tell the old folks what it's all about
A-don't wait 'till your bones are stiff
C'mon an' give your little heart a lift
Listen to me like you know you should
Now let's rock (oh yeah) while the rock is good

(Instrumental & sax)
Chorus: 2x's
Rock-rock, do-wop-bop
Bop-bop, do-wah-bop
Rock-rock, do-wop-bop
Bop-bop, do-wop-bop
Rock, rock, rock-rock-rock
Rock, rock, do-wop-bop

Say, while we're young an' spring is sprung
Let's go moonlight strollin'
'Cause once you're old an' your blood gets cold
Say, no more rockin' an-a rollin'

Let's sing, baby baby, let's shout
A-tell the old folks what it's all about
A-don't wait 'till your bones are stiff
C'mon an' give your little heart a lift
A-listen to me like you know you should
Now let's rock (oh yeah) while the rock is good

Let's rock (oh yeah) while the rock is good!
(Oh yea-eeeah).
