I Want A Rock' N' Roll Guitar
Johnny Preston Lyrics


A ho, ho, ho
It was the night before Christmas and everything was real quiet
So I thought I´d take myself a little walk at Christmas Eve Night
I was making it on down the street, when to my surprise I saw this
Little bitty cat with big old tears in his eyes

Now I could see he was standing in front of this music store
And looked real brought down
I could hear what he was saying
He didn´t know I was around, he say

"I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on TV
Like a rock 'n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock 'n' roll guitar"

So-a I walked over to him-a 'cause I understand
I, I thought I'd cheer him up, so I say, "Look a-here little man
A, you don't want no rock 'n' roll guitar
You want a six gun like the Lone Ranger has

So you can run around saying,
'A hi ho Silver, Kemosabe and all that cowboy jazz"'

Or how would you like old Santa to bring you
A little dump truck so you could go around a-dumping thing?"
And he say, "Man, I don´t want no dump truck
I want something that swings", he say

"I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on TV
Like a rock 'n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock 'n' roll guitar"

Ha, ha, wait a minute there, wait a minute, hold on
Hold on I say, I say, "Hold on there little fellow
Ah, why don't you be like the little chicks and cats
And wish for a space helmet or a rocket ship or something wild like that?"

And you know what he say? He say, "Look here Dad, I
Don't want no plane or no train or nothing square like that
That ain't the lick for me, when I awake this whole place is gonna shake
'Cause you know what I want under my Christmas tree!", he say

"I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock 'n' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on TV
Like a rock 'n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock 'n' roll guitar"

Ho, ho, ho
Crazy little fellow, crazy
Yeah, say
