Just got back from the downtown Palais Where the music was so sweet It knocked me right back in the alley I'm ready, yea, yea, yea, I'm ready Wo, wo, wo, I'm ready And I'm really gonna rock tonight
Sweet little lady sings like a songbird And she sings the opera like you ain't never heard But she ain't ready No, no, no, she ain't ready No, no, no, she ain't ready And she ain't gonna rock & roll
[Chorus:] She's sweet on Wagner I think she'd die for Beethoven She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune And Verdi's always creeping from her room
Come on I'll show you how to sing the blues Now baby, come on over you got nothin' to lose Are you ready, hey, hey, hey are you ready Ooh, ooh, ooh, are you ready I want to show you how to rock and roll.
Now listen here baby she, said to me Just, meet me at the opera house at a quarter to three 'cause I'm ready, yea, yea, yea, I'm ready Woo, hoo, hoo, I'm ready I'm gonna show you how to sing the blues
Far, far away the music is playing.
Well we were reelin' and a rockin' all through the night Yea we were rockin' at the opera house until the break of light And the orchestra were playin' all chuck berry's greatest tunes And the singers in the chorus all got off on singing blues And as the night grew older everybody was as one The people on the streets came runnin' in to join in song Just to hear the opera singer singin' rock & roll so pure I thought I saw the mayor there but I wasn't really sure But it's alright
