Lyrics

In the beginning
Back in 1955
Man didn't know 'bout a rock 'n' roll show
And all that jive

The white man had the schmaltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tschaikovsky had the news, he said

Let there be sound, and there was sound
Let there be light, and there was light
Let there be drums, there was drums
Let there be guitar, there was guitar
Oh, let there be rock!

And it came to pass
That rock 'n' roll was born
All across the land every rockin' band
Was blowin' up a storm

And the guitar man got famous
The business man got rich
And in every bar there was a superstar
With a seven year itch

There was fifteen million fingers
Learnin' how to play
And you could hear the fingers pickin'
And this is what they had to say

Let there be light, sound, drums, guitar
Oh, let there be rock!

One night in a club called the Shakin' Hand
There was a 42 decibel rockin' band
And the music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd:
"Let there be rock"
