Sleep Rock-a-roll Rock-a-baby

Alvis Wayne

(Tony Wayne, WESTPORT 132, 1956)

Were you sleepin' in your bed last night
Did you hear the rock 'n' roll
When you turned out the light
Did you hear it pretty baby, all night long
Did you hear it pretty baby
To the tune of a rock 'n' roll song

Could you see me baby, in your arms so tight
When you were in bed all by yourself last night
Just a-rockin' and a-rollin', all night long
Just a-swingin' and a-swayin' to a bop-bop-boppin' song

Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-bella
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-bella
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby, all night long

You could've heard in the alley, "Sixteen Tons"
Elvis Presley with his "I Was The One"
But did it get you baby, like it did me
Well, did it get you pretty baby
Like it did the folks in Tennessee

Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-bella
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-bella
Sleep rock-a-roll rock-a-baby, all night long
