BETTY JEAN (Chuck Berry)

23 Mar 1988 sound-check version


Ah, I like the way you walk
Speaking little, saying a lot
I like the way you move
Speaking little, saying a lot
I like the way you love
She gives me everything she's got
I like the way you walk
Even ??? you're not

If you wanna dance
Would start a real romance
A beautiful kiss
Could turn me on like this
Let me tell you the way it was
Yes it did, yes it does

Oh oh Betty Jean
I'm in love with you
Oh oh Betty Jean
Oh oh Betty Jean
???

I like the way you talk
Speaking little, saying a lot
I like the way you walk
Looks like you're dancing but you're not
I like the way you love
You give it everything you've got

Oh oh Betty Jean
I'm in love with you
Oh oh Betty Jean
Oh oh Betty Jean
???

???!

[Instrumental break]

??? if you wanna dance
Could start a real romance
A beautiful wanna kiss
Could turn me on like this
Let me tell you the way it was
Yes it did, yes it does

Oh oh Betty Jean
I'm in love with you
Oh oh Betty Jean
Oh oh Betty Jean
