Rock and Roll Waltz
Kay Starr Lyrics


One night I was late, came home from a date
Slipped out of my shoes at the door
Then from the front room, I heard a jump tune
I looked in and here's what I saw

There in the night was a wonderful scene
Mom was dancing with dad to my record machine
And while they danced, only one thing was wrong
They were trying to waltz to a rock and roll song
One, two, and then rock
One, two, and then roll
They did the rock and roll waltz
Rock, two, three, roll, two, three
It looked so cute to me
I love the rock and roll waltz

One, two, and then rock
One, two, and then roll
One, two, and then jump
It's good for your soul
It's old but it's new
Let's do the rock and roll waltz

There in the night was a wonderful scene
Mom was dancing with dad to my record machine
And while they danced, only one thing was wrong
They were trying to waltz to a rock and roll song

One, two, and then rock
One, two, and then roll
One, two, and then jump
It's good for your soul
It's old but it's new
Let's do the rock and roll waltz
Let's do the rock and roll waltz

One night I was late, came home from a date
Slipped out of my shoes at the door
Then from the front room, I heard a jump tune
I looked in and here's what I saw

There in the night what a wonderful scene
Mom was dancing with Dad to my record machine
And while they danced, only one thing was wrong
They were trying to waltz to a rock and roll song!

A-one, two, and then rock
A-one, two, and then roll
They did the rock and roll waltz
A-rock, two, three, a-roll, two, three
It looked so cute to me
I love the rock and roll waltz

A-one, two, and then rock
A-one, two, and then roll
A-one, two, and then jump
It's good for your soul
It's old but it's new
Let's do the rock and roll waltz

There in the night what a wonderful scene
Mom was dancing with Dad to my record machine
And while they danced, only one thing was wrong
They were trying to waltz to a rock and roll song!

A-one, two, and then rock
A-one, two, and then roll
A-one, two, and then jump
It's good for your soul
It's old but it's new
Let's do the rock and roll waltz
Let's do the rock and roll waltz

The one and only Kay Starr. A very talented singer with a tremendously powerful voice! I still love this record.

I had forgotten this song existed until I heard it in passing, flipping through the music channels on TV. Then I had a vivid flashback of dancing to this song with my grandmother as a child, and I can't believe I forgot such an important memory.

This song makes me feel things. Thanks for the upload.

Have always loved this song since I was 7 years old now 71 years young. Takes me back to an innocent era when life was for living.

I bought this record New in 1956 , I still have it today - it was my first record purchase and cost 3/- Australian, I was 9 years old and we just had electricity connected to our house and one of the first songs I heard on the radio was this one - Great memories of a simpler lifestyle with some of the best music ever .
