Rockin' Roll Baby
The Stylistics Lyrics


Tootsie roll soul and doodle-white shoes
Papa's sure proud of his little bitty rockin' roll baby
Singin' at the age of two
He can hardly talk but he sure knows how to sing the blues

Little Joe never sings out of tune
Always in key, he's a soulful little rockin' roll baby
Papa loves the way you do
Never heard a boy sing the way my little Joey do

He was born in a theater in Bluefield, West Virginia
His ma and I were travelin' on the road
I worked hard all that summer as a fill-in for the drummer
One-night stands weren't easy for little Joe

Bought a new house in Beverly hills
Papa made it big and he did it for his rockin' roll baby
A little bit of rhythm and blues
Got a funky walk in his little orthopedic shoes

He was born in a theater in Bluefield, West Virginia
His ma and I were travelin' on the road
I worked hard all that summer as a fill-in for the drummer
One-night stands weren't easy for little Joe

I am thankful to have had great music such as this to listen to as I was growing up in the 70s; these days I almost despair at the way music has degenerated !

That is the reason that you, me and everyone else is here. The music of our past is so much better. Thanks for being here.

I loved this song the first time I heard it over 40 years ago.  It just grabs you from the start and doesn't let go until the end.  Not a wasted note!

Well said, truth.

Wonderful, down to the "little orthopedic shoes"! Bought the 45 record when it came out and have loved it ever since. This one MOVES.
