Written by:Jeff Lynne
Weit hinter in die ferne
Man hört man höret die muzik
Just got back from the downtown palais
Where the music was so sweet
It knocked me right back in the alley
Yeah yeah yeah I’m ready
Wo wo wo I’m ready
I’m really gonna rock tonight
Sweet little lady sings like a songbird
And she sings the opera like you ain’t never heard
But she ain’t ready
No no no she ain’t ready
She ain’t ready
And she ain’t gonna rock and roll
She’s sweet on Wagner
I think she’d die for Beethoven
She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune
And Verdi’s always creeping from her room
Weit hinter in die ferne
Man hört man höret die muzik
Come on I’ll show you how to sing the blues now baby
Come on over you got nothing to lose
Are you ready hey hey hey are you ready
Ooh ooh ooh are you ready
I wanna show you how to rock and roll
Now listen here baby she said to me
Just meet me at the opera house at a quarter to three
Cause I’m ready yeah yeah yeah I’m ready
Woo hoo hoo I’m ready
I’m gonna show you how to sing the blues
She’s sweet on Wagner
Think she’d die for Beethoven
She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune
And Verdi’s always creeping from her room ooh
Far far away the music is playing
We were reeling and a rocking all through the night
And we were rocking at the opera house until the break of light
And the orchestra were playing all chuck Berry’s greatest tunes
And the singers in the chorus all got off on singing blues
And as the night grew older everybody was as one
The people on the streets came running in to join in song
To hear the opera singer singing rock and roll so pure
I thought I saw the mayor but I wasn’t really sure
But it’s alright
