In the beginning
    Back in nineteen fifty five
    Man didn’t know ’bout a rock ‘n’ roll show
    ‘N all that jive
    The white man had the smokes
    The black man had the booze
    No one knew what they was gonna do
    But Tschaikovsky had the news, he said

    Let there be sound, and there was sound
    Let there be light, and there was light
    Let there be drums, there was drums
    Let there be guitar, there was guitar, ah
    Let there be rock

    And it came to pass
    That rock ‘n’ roll was born
    All across the land every rockin’ band
    Was blowin’ up a storm
    And the guitar man got famous
    The business man got rich
    And in every bar there was a superstar
    With a seven year itch
    There was fifteen million fingers
    Learnin’ how to play
    And you could hear the fingers pickin’
    And this is what they had to say

    Let there be light, sound, drums, ‘n guitar, ah
    Let there be rock

    One night in a club called the Shakin’ Hand
    There was a 42 decibel rockin’ band
    And the music was good
    And the music was loud
    And the singer turned and he said to the crowd

    Let there be rock
