Reelin

Reelin' And Rockin'

Chuck Berry

(Chuck Berry, Chess 1683, 1958)

Sometimes I will, then again I think I won't
Sometimes I will, then again I think I won't
Sometimes I do, then again I think I don't

Well, I looked at my watch it was nine twenty one
'twas at a rock 'n' roll dance havin' nothin' but fun
We were rollin' reelin' and a-rockin'
We were reelin' and a-rockin' and rollin' till the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was nine thirty-two
There's nothing I'd rather do than dance with you
We were rollin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was nine forty-three
And every time I'd spin, she'd spin with me
We were reelin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was nine fifty-four
I said, "Dance ballerina girl, go, go, go!"
We were rollin, reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was ten o-five
Man, I didn't know whether I was dead or alive!
But I was rollin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was ten twenty-six
But I'm a keep on dancin' till I got my kicks!
We were reelin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was ten twenty-eight
I gotta get my kicks before it gets too late!
We were reelin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, it was ten twenty-nine
I had to hold her hand, she was still holdin' mine!
We were reelin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, and to my surprise
I was dancin' with a woman who was twice my size!
We were reelin', reelin' and a-rockin'...

Well, I looked at my watch, and it was time to go
The band leader said, "We ain't playin' no mo'!"
We were reelin', reelin', and a-rockin'...
