Hilly Kristal: Mad Mordechai: Rock n Roll Jackson

Here's the story of Rock 'n' Roll Jackson
And how he became the most noble Saxon
Who lived in the time of good King Arthur
Mightiest ruler in all the land

While all the other knights were doing good deeds
Ridding the land of hate and greed
Rock 'n' Roll Jackson stayed home at court
Teaching the ladies his favourite sport
How to rock and roll

Rock and roll
Ubi ubi ubi
Take a crazy stroll
Ubi ubi ubi
All out of control
Ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ooooo

He fell in love with a maiden fair
A real raving beauty beyond all compare
But she didn't have a hankering
No, she didn't care
To get herself all mixed up
In a rock and roll affair

Well about the time when all the knights were away
Except for Mr Jackson who was busy at play
A great big ugly dragon came upon the castle door
Fire spitting from his mouth twenty feet or more

He went stomping around, chasing all the women
Drinking all the ale and sinning and sinning
But all this dissipating soon took its toll
When the dragon came on Mr Jackson doing the rock and roll

Well the dragon he never seen the like of this before
So he started dancing round and round on the castle floor
The music was a moving as fast as could be
Rockin the old dragon to his destiny

Ubi ubi ubi
Rock and roll
Ubi ubi ubi
Take a crazy stroll
Ubi ubi ubi
All out of control
Ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ubi ooooo

They were moving round and round at such a pace
The dragon he lost his balance and fell flat on his face
Half of him was lying there all out of breath
And with his tail a-waggin back and forth he beat himself to death

Well Jackson was a hero
He got his lady fair
They had their wedding at the court
In the castle square
And good King Arthur knighted him, and handing him a scroll
Proclaimed the noble Jackson
Sir Knight of Rock and Roll

Ubi ubi ubi
Rock and roll
Ubi ubi ubi
Take a crazy stroll
Ubi ubi ubi
All out of control
