BABY STARTED ROCKIN'

By Geza Keller

This song was also written during the reign of BTC in 1997-98, when the band played this upbeat and fast-paced rock song to open their shows.

This toe-tapping crowd pleaser  harkens back to the era of Ricky Nelson from "Ozzie and Harriet," when Geza grew up watching bee-bopping teenage girls dancing in their rooms as the 78s or 45s spun on a little turntable.

With a bit of modernizing, the lyrics now reflect the new technology of today's teens, who listen to MP3s or YouTube on their phones or tablets. Kids are still dancing, and the handwritten signs on their bedroom doors still convey the same message: Please knock before entering!"

LYRICS: 

Little girls all around the world are dancin’ in their rooms

Shuffling a thousand MP3’s like they were 78’s

Well sweet sixteen she made prom queen hip hoppin in the light

At 21 she’s on the run ‘cause the backbeat makes it right

 

Baby started rockin’, she can’t stop it, that’s all that she knows

Keep on movin’, keep on groovin’ from your head down to your toes

Baby started rockin’, she can’t stop it, that’s all that she knows

Keep on movin’, keep on groovin’ from your head down to your toes

 

Monday night is “nitro” time, Tuesday’s Ladies Night

Wednesday’s fine, audition time, Thursday's a party all night

Well Friday’s scene can get extreme and Saturday you’re the queen

When Sunday comes it’s much more fun ‘cause you’re back where you started again

 

Keep on movin’, keep on groovin’ From your head down to your toes

Baby started rockin’, she can’t stop it, now everybody knows

Keep on movin’, keep on groovin’ From your head down to your toes

 

I heard you say when you turn gray things will never change

You may hip-hop and dance the bop and waltz the night away

But it’s not the same there is just no flame when you hear that music play

It’s that hard drivin’, ass kickin’, rock and roll that really wants to make you sway

 

Baby Started Rockin'
