Rockabilly

Rockabilly

A cold winter day in Tupelo
He was born who would become the King
Hillbilly music and songs from the Negro
He married them with his pelvis shaking

On the 5th of July 1954
Rock is exploding with the damned hillbilly cat

Bill slappin’ the big standin’ up bass
Scotty picking the guitar with a dirty echo
Go with the kid and his incantations
To throw him in concert to the nations

Steffan Rock, 2002

Rockabilly

A Tupelo en hiver un jour froid
Est né celui qui devait devenir le roi
Musique noire et musique blanche
Il les a mariées en bougeant des hanches

Le 5 juillet 1954
Le rock explose avec damné Hillbilly Cat

Bill et son battement de contrebasse
Scotty et le gros son de guitare en crasse
Accompagnent le gosse et ses incantations
Pour le jeter en concert aux nations

Steffan Rock, 2002
