    Writer Carl Perkins

    Lord, it came rollin' out of Memphis
    Like a hurricane or Texas tornado
    It came rollin' out of Memphis
    Like a hurricane or a Texas tornado
    Yeah, it did...
    And they called us rockabillies
    Long before they called it rock 'n' roll
    We took a little country music
    Put some pop in and dressed it up in soul
    We took a little country music
    Put some pop in and dressed it up in soul
    That's all we did...
    And they called us rockabillies
    Long before they called it rock 'n' roll
    Yeah, rockabilly fever
    Looks like it's coming back again, mm-mm
    Ah, rockabilly fever
    Look out, it might get you my friend
    If that fever starts to get you
    Lay back son, you just might explode
    If that fever starts to get you
    Lay back son, you just might explode
    Look out...
    And they called us rockabillies
    Long before they called it rock 'n' roll
    That's what we were, play it guitar, here we go...
    Well, Elvis started shakin'
    And the whole world shook a little too
    I said Elvis started shakin'
    And the whole world shook a little bit too
    He said, that's all right mama
    Mama, don't you step on my blue suede shoes
    That's what the boy said...
    Oh, rockabilly fever
    Looks like it's coming back again
    Won't it be fun..
    Rockabilly fever
    Look out, it might get you my friend
    If that fever starts to get you
    Just lay back son, you just might explode
    If that fever starts to get you
    Just lay back son, you just might explode
    Well, they called it rockabilly
    Long before they called it rock 'n' roll, oh yeah
    Come on let's rock
    Come on let's roll
    Everybody let's rock
    Everybody let's rock
