TWENTY FLIGHT ROCK
(written by: Ned Fairchild, Edward Cochran)

Ooh, well I got a gal with a record machine
When it comes to rockin’ she’s the queen
We love to dance on Saturday night
All alone I can hold her tight
But she’s lives on the twentieth floor uptown
The elevator’s broken down

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12th floor startin’ to drag
15th floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

Well she calls me up on the telephone
Says “come on over, honey, I’m all alone”
I said “baby, you’re mighty sweet but I’m in bed with achin’ feet”
This went on for a couple of days, but I couldn’t stay away

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12th floor startin’ to drag
15th floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

Well, they sent it to Chicago for repairs
Til it gets fixed I’m usin’ the stairs
I hope they hurry before it´s too late
I want my baby too much to wait
All this a-climbin’ is getting’ me down
They’ll find my corpse draped over a rail

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12th floor startin’ to drag
15th floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

Ooh, well I got a gal with a record machine
When it comes to rockin’ she’s the queen
We love to dance on Saturday night
All alone I can hold her tight
But she’s lives on the 20th floor uptown
The elevator’s broken down

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12th floor startin’ to drag
15th floor I’m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I’m too tired to rock

 

SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL
(written by: Charles Calhoun)

Well, get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Well, get in that kitchen, make some noise with the pots and pans

I believe it to my soul you’re the devil and now I know
I believe it to my soul you’re the devil and now I know
For the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well, I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
Everybody said shake, rattle and roll
Shake rattle and roll
Well, you won’t do right to save your doggone soul

I’m like the one-eyed Jack peeping in a seafood store
I’m like the one-eyed Jack peeping in a seafood store
I can tell by look that you ain’t no child no more

I believe you’re doing me wrong and now I know
I believe you’re doing me wrong and now I know
For the harder I work the faster my money goes

Yeah, I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well, you won’t do right to save your doggone soul

I’m like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
I’m like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
I can tell by look that you ain’t no child no more

Well, I believe it to my soul you’re the devil and now I know
I believe it to my soul you’re the devil and now I know
For the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won’t do right to save your doggone soul
