Your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
Your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
When evening rolls around and it's time to go to town
Where do you go to rock and roll?

The old folks say that you gotta end your date by ten
If you're out on a date and you bring it home late, it's a sin
You know there's no excusin', you know you're gonna lose
And never win, I'll play it again

And it's all because your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
Your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
When evening rolls around and it's time to go to town
Where do you go to rock and roll?

You pull into a drive-in and find a place to park
You hop into the backseat where you know it's nice and dark
You're just about to move in, thinkin' it's a breeze
There's a light in your eyes and then a guy says, "Out of the car, long hair"
"Louise, you're comin' with me, the local police"

And it's all because your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
Your mama don't dance
And your daddy don't rock and roll
When evening rolls around and it's time to go to town
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?
