About

This is one of a collection of “Beatles – Paint the Songs” pieces, by their number one fan, Dick Segal.  Originally penned by Chuck Berry in 1956, undoubtedly the Beatles 1963 version is the one everyone remembers best. It’s a rip-roaring anthem for good old Rock ‘n’ Roll, telling the two geniuses of classical music, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to run along and make-way for a more popular vibe…

 

Well gonna write a little letter
Gonna mail it to my local D.J.
It’s a rocking little record
I want my jockey to play
Roll over Beethoven
Gotta hear it again today

You know my temperature’s rising
And the jukebox blows a fuse
My heart beating rhythm
While my soul keeps singing the blues
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

I got a rocking pneumonia
I need a shot of rhythm and blues
I think I caught it off the writer
Sittin’ down by the rhythm reviews
Roll over Beethoven
We’re rockin’ in two by two

Well if you feel it and like it
Well get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up
Just triffle further and reel and rock it
Roll it over
Roll over Beethoven
A rocking in two by two – Ooo

Well early in the morning
I’m a giving you the warning
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle
I’ll play my fiddle
Ain’t got nothing to lose
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

You know she wiggles like a glow worm
Dance like a spinning top
She’s got a crazy partner
Oughta see them reel an rock
Long as she’s got a dime
The music will never stop
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Dig to these rhythm and blues
