Johnny Preston - (I Want A) Rock And Roll Guitar lyrics

Spoken:
A ho ho ho
It was the night before Christmas and everthing was real quiet.
So I thought I'd take myself a little walk at Christmas Eve Night.
I was makin' it on down the street, when to my surprise I saw this
little bitty cat with big old tears in his eyes.
Now I could see he was standin' in front of this music store and looked
real brought down. I could hear what he was sayin' he didn't know I was
around...he say..

I want a rock n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock n' roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock n' roll guitar

(spoken)
hahaha..so-a I walked over to him-a 'cause I understand
I, I thought I'd cheer him up so I say, 'Look-a-here little man,
A-you don't want no rock n' roll guitar, you want a six gun like
the Lone Ranger has, so you can run around sayin'a hi ho Silver,
Kimo sabe, and all that cowboy jazz'.
Or how would you like old Santa to bring you a little dump truck
so you could go around a-dumpin' thing?
And he say...
'Man, I don't want no dumptruck, I want somethin' that swings
He say...

(sings)
I want a rock n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock n' roll guitar
So I can play that thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock n' roll guitar

Spoken:
Ha, ha, wait a minute there, wait a minute, hold on, hold on I say
I say, 'Hold on there little fellow, ah why don't you be like the little
chicks and cats and wish for a space helmet or a rocketship or something
wild like that?' And you know what he say? He say... 'Look here dad, I
don't want no plane or no train or nothin' square like that, that ain't
the lick for me, when I awake this whole place is gonna shake, 'cause you
know what I want under my Christmas tree!' He say!..

(sings)
I want a rock n' roll guitar
With a big bass string
I want a rock and roll guitar
So I can play the thing

I wanna be on t.v.
Like a rock n' roll star
I want Santa Claus to bring me
A rock n' roll guitar

Ho ho ho, crazy little fellow, crazy, yeah, say...
