Zilele de școală ale lui Chuck Berry, ca azi

Chuck Berry a murit ieri. Faimosul chitarist american și pionier al muzicii rock and roll Charles Edward Anderson "Chuck" Berry avea 90 de ani și ne cânta de peste o jumătate de secol despre libertate, viața de adolescent, Johnny B. Good, Little Queenie, zilele de școală…Care erau ca multe din zilele noastre, așa, ca în fabrică, educație pe bandă rulantă:

Up in the mornin' and out to school
The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule
American history and practical math
You studyin' 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 lunch room'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 your 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

Drop the coin right into the slot
You're gotta hear somethin' that's really hot
With the one you love, you're makin' romance
All day long you been wantin' to dance,
Feeling the music from head to toe
Round and round and round we go

Hail, hail rock and roll
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock and roll
The beat of the drum is loud and bold
Rock, rock, rock and roll
The feelin' is there, body and soul.
