Rock and Roll Lullaby B.J. Thomas (#15 in 1972)

She was just sixteen and all alone
When I came to be, so we grew up together
My mama child and me
Now things were bad and she was scared
But whenever I would cry she'd calm my fears
And dry my tears with a rock'n'roll lullaby

    And she'd sing sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, It'll be alright
    Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la now just hold on tight
    Sing it to me mama, mama-mama-mama-mama
    Sing it sweet and clear oh mama let me hear
    That rock'n'roll lullaby

Now we made it through the lonely days
The northern nights were long and we'd dream of better mornings
When mama sang the song

Now I can't recall the words at all it don't make sense to try
'Cause I just knew lots of love came through
In that rock'n’roll lullaby
