Thursday Theme Song - Reelin' & Rockin'

Reelin' & Rockin'
Lyrics: Chuck Berry

Some-times I will, then again I think I won't.
Some-times I will, then again I think I won't.
Some- times 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 nothin' 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'....

Funny you chose this song, when my hubby was playing it along with his guitar earlier and it's been stuck in my head all day... LOL
