The Rockaway Rock - The Collins Kids

The Rockaway Rock

The Collins Kids

(Dusty Rose, Columbia 21514, 1956)

On the Lake of Teenycomo in the Ozark Hills
Where everybody goes for their Saturday thrills
There's a dance coast they call the Sandy Lane
Where they all get together and they dance and sing
They start rockin' that boat, to the rockaway rock
How long will she float, to the rockaway rock
Oh the corn starts a-crackin' and the party's a-packin'
And the fishes started jumpin' with the rockin' and rollin'
To the rockaway rock
We're gonna rock-rock-rockin' that boat
We're gonna rock-rock-rockin' that boat
We're gonna rock-rock-rockin' and rollin'
To the rockaway rock

Along about midnight they reach the rockaway
Then they turn around and head the other way
The moon up above starts a-rockin' on a cloud
And the man in the moon shouts, for cryin' out loud!
Who's a-rockin' that boat, to the rockaway rock
How long will she float, to the rockaway rock
All the town starts awakin' to the jumpin' and a-shakin'
And all the country starts to rockin' and rollin'
To the rockaway rock
