Roll Over Beethoven
Chuck Berry Lyrics


I'm gonna write a little letter
Gonna mail it to my local DJ
It's a rockin' rhythm record
I want my jockey to play
Roll over Beethoven, I gotta hear it again today

You know, my temperature's risin'
And the jukebox blows a fuse
My heart's beatin' rhythm
And my soul keeps on singin' the blues
Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news

I got the rockin' pneumonia,
I need a shot of rhythm and blues
I think I'm rollin' arthritis
Sittin' down by the rhythm review
Roll over Beethoven rockin' in two by two

Well, if you feel you like it
Go get your lover, then reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up just
A trifle further and reel and rock it
Roll it over
Roll over Beethoven rockin' in two by two

Well, early in the mornin' I'm a-givin' you a warnin'
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle, I am playin' my fiddle
Ain't got nothin' to lose
Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news

You know she wiggles like a glow worm
Dance like a spinnin' top
She got a crazy partner
Oughta see 'em reel and rock
Long as she got a dime the music will never stop

Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven and dig these rhythm and blues

Roll Over Beethoven,
Roll Over Beethoven,

Well, gonna write a little letter
Gonna mail it to my local DJ

I want my jockey to play
Roll over Beethoven
Gotta hear it again today

You know my temperature's risin'
And the jukebox's blows a fuse
My heart's beatin' rhythm
And my soul keeps singing the blues
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

I got a rockin' pneumonia
I need a shot of rhythm and blues (woo)
I think I got it off the writer
Sittin' down by the rhythm revue
Roll over Beethoven
We're rockin' in two by two

Well, if you feel it and like it
Well, get your lover and reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up just
Triffle further and reel and rock it
Roll it over, roll over Beethoven
Rockin' in two by two (woo)

Well early in the morning, I'm a giving you the warning
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle, I'll play my fiddle
Ain't got nothing to lose
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

You know she winks like a glow worm
Dance like a spinning top
She's got a crazy partner
Oughta see them reel and rock
Long as she's got a dime
The music will never stop

Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Dig to these rhythm and blues

Too bad Beethoven never composed a symphony called "Roll Over Berry."

Ronald 240Bravo

I'm pretty sure he would be tapping his toes with an evil grin 😎👍

Chuck Berry is nothing compared to Beethoven.

Ryan Kelly

@Kay Muldoon yup yup yup, that's what he said, that's what he said. Chuck Berry = Rock & Roll. Rock & Roll = Chuck Berry. If Rock implies Chuck, then Roll implies Berry!!!

Ryan Kelly

@Anthony Bakker CHUCK BERRRRRRRYYYYYY!!!!! woo hooo!!! What an innovator. Never heard another vocalist sing around and bend notes the way he did. Never heard another lyricist write with as much punch, joy & fun in their words. He's a god and my personal fav.

Brian Dean

Good point. Today I bet more people know Beethoven's name than Chuck Berry's.

Is it just my imagination, or does the beginning sound an awful lot like Johnny B. Goode?

Also the voice is eerily similar, might just be me

John Maskell

nearly all berrys stuff sounds the same
