Up in the mornin' and out to school The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule American history and practical math You study' em hard and hopin' to pass Workin' your fingers right down to the bone And the guy behind you won't leave you alone.
Ring ring goes the bell The cook in the lunchroom's ready to sell You're lucky if you can find a seat You're fortunate if you have time to eat Back in the classroom open you books Gee but the teacher don't know How mean she looks.
Soon as three o'clock rolls around You finally lay your burden down Close up your books, get out of your seat. Down the halls and into the street Up to the corner and 'round the bend Right to the juke joint you go in. With the one you love you're makin' romance All day long you been Wantin' to dance Feelin' the music from head to toe 'Round and 'round and 'round you go.
Hail, hail rock'n'roll Deliver me from the days of old Long live rock'n'roll The beat of the drum is loud and bold Rock rock rock'n'roll The feelin' is there body and soul. I'm gonna write a little letter, gonna mail it to my local DJ It's a rockin' rhythm record I want my jockey to play Roll Over Beethoven, I gotta hear it again today.
You know, my temperature's risin' and the jukebox blows a fuse My heart's beatin' rhythm and my soul keeps on Album) the blues Roll Over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news.

Well, early in the mornin' I'm a givin' you a warnin' don't you step on my blue suede shoes Hey diddle diddle, I am playin' my fiddle, ain't got nothin' to lose Roll Over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news.
You know she wiggles like a glow worm, dance like a spinnin' top She got a crazy partner, oughta see 'em reel and rock Long as she got a dime the music will never stop. Ridin' along in my automobile My baby beside me at the wheel I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile My curiosity runnin' wild. Ridin' along in my automobile I'm anxious to tell her the way I feel, So I told her softly and sincere, And she leaned and whispered in my ear Cuddlin' more and drivin' slow, With no particular place to go.
No particular place to go, So we parked way out on the Kokomo The night was young and the moon was bold So we both decided to take a stroll Can you imagine the way I felt?
I couldn't unfasten her safety belt! Ridin' along in my calaboose Still tryin' to get her belt unloose All the way home I held a grudge, But the safety belt, it wouldn't budge. When I was a little bitty boy my grandmother bought me a cute little toy Silver bells hangin' on a string she told me it was my ding a ling.
My ding a ling, my ding a ling I want to play with my ding a ling My ding a ling, my ding a ling I want to play with my ding a ling. And then mother took me to Grammer School But I stopped all in the vestibule Every time that bell would ring catched me playin' with my ding a ling. Once I was climbing the garden wall I slipped and had a terrible fall I fell so hard I heard bells ring but held on to my ding a ling.
Once I was swimming cross Turtle creek many snappers all around my feet Shure was hard swimming cross that thing with both hands holdin' my ding a ling. This here song it ain't so sad the cutest little song you ever had those of you who will not sing You must be playin' with your own ding a ling My ding a ling.

Maybellene, why can't you be true Oh MaybelleneIt Hurts Me Too - Chuck Berry - Chuck Berry In Memphis (CD, why can't you be true You've started back doin' the things you used to do. The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more It then got cloudy and started to rain I tooted my horn for a passin' lane The rainwater blowin' all under my hood I know that I was doin' my motor good Maybellene.
As a starting point, the answer to that one is: We should trust the art and judge songs or movies or books for their intrinsic worth, and not expect their creators to live up to our expectations as paragons of virtue, lest we be sorely disappointed when they turn out to have feet of clay.
Under extreme circumstances involving allegedly heinous behavior, however, those questions get trickier. Do you know how much Woody Allen is worth to the film industry? Apparently, one daughter. Roman Polanski, who pleaded guilty to felony charges involving sex with a year-old in then fled the country, won an Oscar in for directing The Pianist. A legal decision on his case is expected in Los Angeles Superior Court this spring.
Bill Cosby, whose sexual-assault trial is set to begin in Montgomery County on June 5, would seem, at this point, anyway, It Hurts Me Too - Chuck Berry - Chuck Berry In Memphis (CD be one accused entertainer whose allegations of wrongdoing have effectively ended his career. Would Berry have survived the publicity from his Mann Act violation if he had faced such a conviction today?
The intensity of the media attention would be overwhelming. But the collective willingness of fans to forgive damaging charges by favorite stars whose art or celebrity they cherish is not to be underestimated. The president of the United States himself made that point, in fact, to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in in their caught-on-tape conversation that came to light in October and wound up not being the death blow to his electoral hopes against Hillary Clinton that pundits predicted it would be.
