Peter, Paul & Mary I DIG ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC Lyrics

Last updated: 02/19/2014 03:57:47 PM

I dig Rock and Roll music
And I love to get the chance to play. (and sing it)
I figure it's about the happiest sound goin' down today.

The message may not move me,
Or mean a great deal to me,
But hey! it feels so groovy to say:
I dig the Mamas and the Papas at "The Trip,"
Sunset Strip in L.A.
And they got a good thing goin'
When the words don't get in the way.
And when they're really wailing,
Michelle and Cass are sailin'.
Hey! they really nail me to the wall.

I dig Donovan in a dream-like, tripped out way
His crystal images tell you 'bout a brighter day
And when the Beatles tell you
They've got a word "love" to sell you
They mean exactly what they say

I dig Rock and Roll music
I could really get it on in that scene.
I think I could say somethin' if you know what I mean
But if I really say it, the radio won't play it
Unless I lay it between the lines

I Dig Rock n Roll Music | Reviewer: Dr Jim | 2/19/14

Rock n Roll faded with Buddy Holly's demise, Jerry Lee Lewis marrying his 13 year old cousin, Little Richard going into the ministry, payola, Elvis going into the Army and Chuck Berry violating the Mann Act(transporting a minor across state lines for immoral purposes. Peter, Paul and Mary's parody on rock n roll is a refreshing transition of folk.
