The Lyrics

DK/DRTOS? Listen to a midi at http://rosemck1.tripod.com/jukebox-1950s.html ... link is halfway down-page. Lots of it contemporaries there, too.
"I Hear You Rockin'"

(brief instrumental intro)

You went off-key (deaf maybe) long time ago,
and now your rockin’s mighty poor.

I hear you rockin’ but your clankin’ din,
my dear, is shockin’ … you got ears of tin.

I egged you on, I know, in days long gone by,
but now you’re well in…to demise.

I hear you rockin’ but your clankin’ din,
my dear, is shockin’ … you got ears of tin.

(instrumental interlude)

Your clatter smacks new ears a…busively.
You can’t find the groove now, music’ly.

I hear you rockin’ but your clankin’ din,
my dear, is shockin’ … you got ears of tin.

You’re old today and lackin' rhythm, too,
that’s why it’s over – know it’s true.

I hear you rockin’ but your clankin’ din,
my dear, is shockin’ … you got ears of tin.

(instrumental fade)
© Stan Hall ... same tale as told in "Mr. Beethoven Lives Upstairs,: only different. :-)
