As I was motivatin’ over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville
A Cadillac rollin’ on the open road
Nothin’ will outrun my V8 Ford
Cadillac doin’ about ninety-five
She’s bumper to bumper, rollin’ side by side
Maybell\ene! Why can’t you be true?
Not forgetting “Roll over Beethoven,” “Rock and roll music.” “Sweet little sixteen,” “Memphis, Tennessee”, “No particular place to go,” “Nadine,” “Joihnny B Goode,” “Carole” and more.
HAIL HAIL ROCK ‘N ROLL!
