She was just sixteen and all alone when I came to be
So we grew up together, my mama-child and me
Now things were bad and she was scared but whenever I would cry
She'd calm my fear and dry my tears
With a rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, it'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, just hold on tight
Sing it to me, mama
My, my, my, my mama
Sing it sweet and clear, oh mama let me hear
That old rock and roll lullaby

We made it through the lonely days but, Lord, the nights were long
And we'd dream of better mornin's when mama sang a song
Now I can't recall the words at all, it don't make sense to try
'cause I just knew lotsa love came through
In that rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, it'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, just hold on tight
I can hear ya, mama
My, my, my, my mama
Nothin' moves my soul like the sound of the good old
Rock and roll lullaby

Just hold on tight
My, my, my, my mama
Nothin' moves my soul like the sound of the good old
Rock and roll lullaby
