Song Description

About rock and roll being banned in Jersey City in 1955

Lyrics

BANNED IN JERSEY CITY

A'well the beat was just a baby,
Learnin' how to walk.
The words were just a doo-wop,
Learnin' how to talk.

The man he grabbed a wax groove,
Yanked it from its sleeve.
And how he shut, the music down,
Man, you wouldn't believe.

It was Banned in Jersey City.
B.J. Berry put it in the dump.
Banned in Jersey City.
But ol' Chuck Berry made it jump.
Banned in Jersey City.
It was a very, Berry, Berry hot time.

Intrumental rock riff

A'well the kids made it a riot,
Right down to their soul.
It made them wannna rock it.
It made them wanna roll.

The man he said he'd trash it,
For the country's sake.
But call a cop - he couldn't stop,
The wiggle and the shake.

It was Banned in Jersey City.
B.J. Berry put it in the dump.
Banned in Jersey City.
But ol' Chuck Berry made it jump.
Banned in Jersey City.
It was a very, Berry, Berry hot time.

Intrumental rock riff

It was Banned in Jersey City.
B.J. Berry put it in the dump.
Banned in Jersey City.
But ol' Chuck Berry made it jump.
Banned in Jersey City.
It was a very, Berry, Berry hot time.
