Words and music : Chuck Berry.

Gene interprétait régulièrement ce titre sur scène.

Notamment le 7 novembre 1959, au Campton Town Hall, Los Angeles, Town Hall Party, avec Jerry Merritt à la guitare.

Mais aussi en Angleterre pour la BBC accompagné par The²Sounds Incorporated.

Full lyrics :

Well I'm gonna write a little letter
I'm gonna mail it to my local D.J.
It's a rocking little record
I want my jockey to play
Roll over Beethoven
I gotta hear it again today

You know my temperature's rising
And the jukebox's blowing a fuse
My hearts beating rhythm
And my soul keeps singing the blues
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

I got a rocking pneumonia
I need a shot of rhythm and blues
I think I got it off the writer
Sitting down by the rhythm review
Roll over Beethoven
They're rocking in two by two

Well, if you feel you like it
Go get your lover, then reel and rock it
Roll it over and move on up just
A trifle further and reel and rock it
Roll over Beethoven
And dig these rhythm and blues

Well early in the morning
I'm a giving you my warning
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Hey diddle diddle
Gonna play my fiddle
Ain't got nothing to lose
Roll over Beethoven
And tell Tchaikovsky the news

You know she wiggles like a glow worm
Dance like a spinning top
She got a crazy partner
You oughta see them reel an rock
Long as she's got a dime
The music will never stop
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Roll over Beethoven
Dig these rhythm and blues
