SPOKEN:A ho ho ho......It was the night before Christmas and
everthing was real quiet. So I thought I'd take myself a little
walk at Christmas Eve Night. I was makin' it on down the street,
when to my surprise I saw this little bitty cat with big old
tears in his eyes. Now I could see he was standin' in front of
this music store and looked real brought down. I could hear what
he was sayin', he didn't know I was around...he say.....

I want a rock an' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock an' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock an' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock an' roll guitar

SPOKEN: ha ha ha.....so-a I walked over to him-a 'cause I understand.
I, I thought I'd cheer him up so I say, "Look-a-here little man,
A-you don't want no rock an' roll guitar, you want a six gun like
the Lone Ranger has, so you can run around sayin'-a hi ho Silver,
Kimo sabe, and all that cowboy jazz. Or how would you like old Santa
to bring you a little dump truck so you could go around a-dumpin'
things".....And he say, "Man, I don't want no dumptruck, I want
somethin' that swings".....He say.....

I want a rock an' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock an' roll guitar
So I can play that thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock an' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock an' roll guitar

SPOKEN: Ha, ha, wait a minute there, wait a minute, hold on, hold on
I say. I say, hold on there little fellow, ah why don't you be like
the little chicks and cats and wish for a space helmet or a
rocketship or something wild like that? And you know what he say? He
say....."Look here dad, I don't want no plane or no train or nothin'
square like that, that ain't the lick for me. Wwhen I awake this
whole place is gonna shake, 'cause you know what I want under my
Christmas tree!"....He say.....

I want a rock an' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock an' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock an' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock an' roll guitar

Ho ho ho, crazy little fellow, crazy, yeah, say...FADE
