Lyrics

Up jumped Johnny, he said he had the blues.

Down fell the kingdom we started lookin' for clues.

Say goodbye to Maybelline, whatever happened to Peggy Sue.

I packed up my guitar, gave up chopping wood too. And I say...

 

Hey, Mama. Give me back my rock and roll shoes.

Hey, Mama. Give me back my rock and roll shoes.

 

Last time I saw her Run-around was now Settled Down Sue.

And the clock that we rocked around had turned into a grandfather coo-koo.

We shouted and twisted it till we bled it completely dry.

They say one thing you can be sure of, rock and roll won't ever die.

But I'm not so sure, so...

 

Hey, Mama. Give me back my rock and roll shoes.

Hey, Mama. Give me back my rock and roll shoes.

 

Now they study it in colleges, try to analyze all the words.

Lookin' for hidden meanings, I never heard of anything so absurd.

It used to be so much fun, just to laugh and play and sing.

You know rock and roll was nothing, that's why it was everything. And I say....

 

Hey, Mama.  Give me back my rock and roll shoes. 

Hey, Mama.  Give me back my rock and roll shoes.
