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

[Chorus:]

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
