Lyric of the Week: ROCKTROPIA—A SUITE IN 4 MOVEMENTS (3)

Updated: Mar 12

III. INTERMEZZO: THE BLUES


Hey hey mama, who’s ya daddy

Come on baby, let’s rock’n’roll

I wanna rock you baby, I got the blues for you baby

You’re the one that’s gonna soothe my soul

Tell me you love me, tell me a lie

You know I love you till the day I die


Jump back Jack, it’s a natch’l fact

Let our backbone slip, don’t you gimme no lip

Y’all know what I’m talkin’ bout

You’re clean out of sight

I lay my money down, you lay your body down

We gonna rock’n’roll all night


Well, you better let that boy boogie-woogie

‘Cuz it’s in him and it got to come out

Lemme take you home

You know I ain’t gonna to you no wrong

Gonna boom boom boom

Gonna rock you baby all night long

Boogie chillun.

This is the third movement of my rock'n'roll cliché suite. The first movement was a big bombastic rock anthem and the second slowed down to a power ballad but was equally as bombastic. Now here we shift gears and take it down to Clarksdale, Houston, or the South Side of Chicago, with a whole stream of catchphrases heard in many songs of the blues genre sung to the tune of a rocked-up John Lee Hooker–esque groove à la ZZ Top. Once again ... keep in mind that none of it needs to make any sense.
