TIME WARP WHIRL

Intro (4 bars): key of G

I don’t mind if I live too late
I put my mind in a fifties state
I keep hearing the jukebox tunes
Turn ‘em loud till they blow the fuse

I beam my feet in my blue suede shoes
I tune my ears for the brushed up blues
I kick my feet and I lift my girl
We jump, we flip in a frenzied twirl

Oh we rock, we roll
Me and my baby girl
Oh we rock, we roll
In a time warp whirl


When I hear the rhythm, when I feel the beat
I can’t resist jumping to my feet
It’s in my body, it’s in my blood
Coming over me like a flash flood

I beam my feet in my blue suede shoes
I tune my ears for the brushed up blues
I kick my feet and I lift my girl
We jump, we flip in a frenzied twirl

Oh we rock, we roll
Me and my baby girl
Oh we rock, we roll
In a time warp whirl


Some "Doop-doo-wop" (8 bars):

I beam my feet in my blue suede shoes
I tune my ears for the brushed up blues
I kick my feet and I lift my girl
We jump, we flip in a frenzied twirl

Oh we rock, we roll
Me and my baby girl
Oh we rock, we roll
In a time warp whirl


Oh we rock, we roll
Me and my baby girl
Oh we rock, we roll
In a time warp whirl


Oh we rock!

Guy,

You really have a nice voice—clear with depth—and it really resonates in particular on this recording. Very good job on putting these lyrics to music—deft melody and a nice balance on the mix. This may be among my favorites that I’ve heard from you. Well done!

Best regards,

Deej
