Memphis Beat
Jerry Lee Lewis

Memphis Beat

Down by Mississippi where the water gets muddy
Or the old school where the kids go steady
Well they hang around at the foot of Beale Street
Well that's where they hear that Memhpis Beat

Oh going to Memphis
Where the beat is tough
Memphis
I can't get enough

It makes you tremble and it makes you weak
It gets in your blood that Memphis Beat
Whoo They hitch-hike here from California
Ride on a Honda from Arizona

Houston, Boston, Kansas City
New Orleans and a doo who diddy
Oh Going to Memphis
Where the beat is tough

Memphis
I can't get enough
It makes you tremble and it makes you weak
It gets in your blood that Memphis Beat
Whooo yeah

Well people come a ridin'
and a walkin' and a swimming
Got a get a chance at them good lookin' women
Walk em on down to the foot of Beale Street

Ahh Gonna dance all night to that Memphis Beat
Ooooooh going to Memphis
Where the beat is tough
Memphis

I can't get enough
It makes you tremble and it makes you weak
It gets in your blood that Memphis Beat
OH come on down

Lets go to Memphis
Where the beat is tough
I can't get enough
I gotta get back there

Its get in your blood
It makes you feel good
Whoooo

Middle Aged Crazy
Today he traded his big 98 Oldsmobile
He got a heck of a deal
On a new Porsche car
He ain't wearing his usual grey business suit

He's got jeans and high boots
With an embroidered star
An today he's forty years old going on twenty
Don't look for the grey in his hair

'Cause he ain't got any
He's got a young thing beside him
That just melts in his hand
He's middle aged crazy

Trying to prove he still can
He's gotta a woman he's loved for a long long time at home
Ah but the thrill is all gone
When they cut down the lights

They've got a business that they spent a while comming by
been a long uphill climb
But now the profits are high
But today he's forty years old going on twenty

And he hears of sordid affairs and he aint had any
And the young thing beside him
You know she understands
That he's middle aged crazy
Trying to prove he still can
