Till The Law Says Stop - Dorsey Burnette

Till The Law Says Stop

Dorsey Burnette

(J. Marascolo - J. & D. Burnette, 1957)

Well, I got good news that'll knock you out
I just got my cheque and I'm gonna shout
Been waitin' for my money for oh so long
Gonna have a ball, yes the whole night long

Yes, I'm a-gonna rock, I'm a-gonna roll
I'm a-gonna bop, bet your soul
I'm a-gonna rock, till the law says stop

I passed the word around, I've got loot
Tell all them chicks to get off of their roost
Fall on by to this knocked out hall
Gonna live it up and have a ball

Yes, I'm a-gonna rock, I'm a-gonna roll
I'm a-gonna bop, bet your soul
I'm a-gonna rock, till the law says stop

Oh, what a party this is gonna be
We'll rock all night, just wait and see
When the sun comes up tomorrow morn'
Won't have a dime, but I'd a-had a party yeah

Yes, I'm a-gonna rock, well I'm a-gonna roll
I'm a-gonna bop, bet your soul
I'm a-gonna rock, till the law says stop

Oh, what a party this is gonna be
We'll rock all night, just wait and see
When the sun comes up tomorrow morn'
Won't have a dime, but I'd a-had a party yeah

Yes, I'm a-gonna rock, I'm a-gonna roll
I'm a-gonna bop, bet your soul
I'm a-gonna rock, till the law says stop
Till the law says stop
Till the law says stop
[Fade]
