"Rock & Roll Lullaby"

(As recorded by B.J. Thomas)
BARRY MANN
CYNTHIA WEIL

She was just sixteen and all alone, when I came to be
So we grew up together, my mama, child and me
Now things were bad and she was scared, but whenever I would cry
She'd calm my fears and dry my tears with a rock & roll lullaby.

And she'd sing
Sha na na na na na na na na na na
It'll be alright
Sha na na na na na na na na na na
Just hold on tight
Sing it to me mama
My, my, my, my mama
Sing it sweet and clear woah mama, let me hear that 'ole
Rock & roll lullaby.

We made it through the lonely days, but Lord the nights were long
And we'd dream of better mornings, when mama sang her song
Now I can't recall the words at all, it don't make sense to try
'Cause I just knew lots of love came through in that
Rock & roll lullaby.

And she'd sing
Sha na na na na na na na na na na
It'll be alright
Sha na na na na na na na na na na
Just hold on tight
I can hear you mama
My, my, my, my mama
Nothing moves my soul like the sound of a good 'ole
Rock & roll lullaby.

Be alright, just hold on tight
My, my, my, my, mama
Nothing moves my soul like the sound of a good 'ole
Rock & roll lullaby.

Sha na na na na na na na na na na
It'll be alright
Sha na na na na na na na na na na
Just hold on tight.
