Lyrics

Oh yeah
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 9:21
We was a rockin' and dancin', havin' nothing but fun when we're rollin'
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 9:32
We was doin' honky talkin' to Suzzy Q too
When we're rockin'
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 9:43
Every time she moved, she would move with me, and we rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 9:54
I said, "Rock ballerina, go, go", and we rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 10:05
Boy, I didn't know whether I was dead or alive, but I was rollin'
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 10:26
It took a little time, but I finally got my kicks and I rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 10:37
I felt just like men in heaven and I rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
I was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 10:48
She made a boogie-boogie bow and stretched on straight, and I rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 10:59
I said, "Ooh baby, you sure move fine", and I rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' 'til the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was 11:10
I pulled her up, we danced again and I rolled
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' at the break of dawn

Well, I looked at my watch, it was straight up 12
Boy, we was rockin' like an old Steve Shelvy, we rollin'
Reelin' and rockin'
We was reelin' and rockin', rollin' at the break of dawn
