Jerry Lee Lewis Lyrics

Jerry Lee Lewis Don’t Boogie Woogie Lyrics

I was feelin’ kind of poorly, hadn’t been lookin’ too fine

I just had to found out what was ailin’ this old body of mine

So I went to my family doctor

To get my temperature and set me straight

And the first thing he did was to tell me

To quit eatin’ every good thing I ate

And he told old Jerry Lee to stop smokin’

Lay off of that beer and whiskey

He said, son you gonna have to have a little help

And confidentially he looked at Jerry Lee

He shook his head, and then he said

Like a friend he took my hand and he said:

Don’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

Son, you can’t boogie woogie when you send your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

Jerry Lee, you been over-rockin’, you know that it ain’t right

You better turn on Jesus when you switch out the light

Don’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

He wired me up like spaceman and he turned on the cardiograph

The needle went out of sight, the doc turned white

He called in his entire staff

And he cried out in disbelief

Told the killer with staring conviction

He said, if you don’t live right son

You’re gonna die of cholesterol constriction

He looked at me, he shook his head

Here’s a perspective that I think you’re gonna dread

You can’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

You can’t do it, you can’t do it son, it ain’t right

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

You better quit rockin’ boy, you know it ain’t right

You better turn on Jesus when you turn off the light

Don’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

Wow, give it to me now!

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

Oh, don’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

You can’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight

(Don’t boogie woogie, don’t boogie woogie)

Son, you been over-rockin’ and you know that it ain’t right

You better turn on Jesus when you switch off the light

Don’t boogie woogie when you say your prayers tonight
