Well she was just sixteen an hour ago
When I first came to be
So we grew up together
My mama child and me
Well the times were bad and she'd get scared
Whenever I would cry
She'd calm my fears and dry my tears
With a rock & roll lullaby

And she'd sing sha la la la la la la la la la
It's gonna be alright
She'd be singing like that
Sha la la la la la
You'd better hold on tight
Sing it to me mama
It's gonna be alright
Sing it sweet and clear
Oh mama let me hear that
Rock and roll lullaby


Well we made it through the lonely days
But lord the nights were long
We dreamed of brighter moments
When mama sang her song
But I can't recall the words at all
It don't make sense to try
But all I knew is lots of love came through
With that rock and roll lullaby


And she'd sing sha la la la la la la la la la
It's gonna be alright it's gonna be alright now
Sha la la la la la la la la la
You'd better hold on tight
I can hear you mama
Sha la la la la la la la la la
It's gonna be alright
Nothing soothes my soul like the sound of a good old
Rock and roll lullaby
