Rays Rockhouse Lyrics

    Ray's rockhouse, that's my joint
    House of soul, git my point
    We don't care what's your blues
    Come in here, lose yo' blues
    When trouble comes a-knockin'
    Everything looks better while y'rockin'
    You don't notice trouble while y'rockin'
    Rock! (repeat for 12 bars)

    Let's rock! that's what we're offerin' you
    Let's rock! that's what we wantcha' t'do
    Let's rock! rock all y' troubles away
    Let's rock! rock till the dawnin' o'day
    Let's rock! rockhouse is ready t'roll
    Let's rock! rockhouse is good f'th'soul

    Ev'ry saturday night there's a scene
    That's a part o'the fun
    Mrs. tucker will enter the joint
    In a search for her son
    Every saturday night he sneaks out
    Leavin' her in the lurch
    But she's lookin' t'bring him on home
    'cause tomorrow is church
    She really hates the rockhouse
    She's sure the devil is in control here
    Nothin' but rock'n'roll here

    Yodle-dole-dole (echo) lady who
    Gotr a lotta rockin' to do
    Swing - whatta y'waitin' for
    We got plenty o'soul for you

    Everybody gotta loosen your hip
    Do a few rolls wait'll y'feel
    Y'back'll slip then y'rockin'

    (repeat chorus)

    Sisters of the flockhouse
    Ain't got no business comin' to th'rockhouse
    All the people in here
    Are all in t'sin in here
    Of this there's no doubt
    That's why miz' tucker is pullin' sam out

    (repeat chorus)
