Again and again
Status quo
Hence that the chord 'H' is equal to
'B' in the British/American scale

H
Once upon a time not so very long ago

There wasnīt such a thing as a rockīn roll show

Found himself a beat and he played it near and far
F# H
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll


Chorus:
H
Again again again again
E
Again again again again

Why donīt you do it
H
Why donīt you do it again
H
Again again again again

Again again again again
F#
Why donīt you do it
H
Why donīt you do it again

verse:
He travelled round the world in a rock-n-roll band
He stood there like a giant with a guitar in his hand
Everybody danced and sang and let the good times roll
Nobody cared about the clothes he would wear
Nobody cared about the colour of his hair
Everybody came to see and let the good times roll

Again again again again
Again again again again
Why donīt you do it
Why donīt you do it again
Again again again again
Again again again again
Why donīt you do it
Why donīt you do it again

verse:
Now weīve got the rhythm in us now weīve got the rock
Time didnīt matter never living by the clock
Everybody came to hear him playing his rock-n-roll
Then came a line when the music didnīt rhyme
He couldnīt find the rhythm cos he couldnīt find the time
But still the people came to listen to the good times roll

chorus:
Again again again again
Again again again again
Why donīt you do it
Why donīt you do it again
Again again again again
Again again again again
Why donīt you do it
Why donīt you do it again
