Just got back from the downtown palais
Where the music was so sweet
It knocked me right back in the alley
     G7
I'm ready
                       D
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm ready
                       A   Bm
Whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm ready
                  F#m     Em   F#5 - G5 - A
And I'm really gonna rock tonight
D
Sweet little lady sings, like a songbird
And she sings the opera like you ain't never heard
             G7
But she ain't ready
               D
No, no, no, she ain't ready
             Bm
No, no, no, she ain't ready
    F#m             A7      D   (F F E E D D B B F F E E D D)
And she ain't gonna rock & roll                  

Em                A     (A A B D F#) Em 
 She's sweet on   Wagner
                     A         (A A B D F#) Em
I think she'd die for Beethoven
                           A             (A A B D F#) Em
She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune
                      A               (A A B D D B)
And Verdi's always creeping from her room

Come on I'll show you how to sing the blues
Now baby, come on over over, you got nothin' to lose
         G7
Are you ready?
                     D
Hey, hey, hey, are you ready?
                       A7
Ooh, ooh, ooh, are you ready?
         Bm         F#m           Em  F#5 - G5 - A
I wanna show you how to rock and roll
D
Now listen here baby she, said to me
Just meet me at the opera house at quarter to three
           G7
Cause I'm ready
                    D
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm ready
                  Bm
Woo, hoo, hoo, I'm ready
           F#m             A7       D  (F F E E D D B B F F E E D D)
I'm gonna show you how to sing the blues                

N.C                (uhh)
She's sweet on Wagner
                   (uhuhh)     (D D  G6add9) Em
I think she'd die for Beethoven
Em                        (Em F#5 G5) A   (A A B D F#) Em
She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune
                         (Em F#5 G5) A    (A A B D D B)
And Verdi's always creeping from her room

D                 Bm             F#m                A7        _
Faaaar            far away   the music       i-i-is playing    | both
       Oh far far away           The music is...    Playin'   _| 

             
             D                        Em7
Well we were reelin' and rockin' all through the night
           D/F#                        G                
Ya we were rockin at the opera house until the break of light
              D                         Em7
And the orchestra was playin' all Chuck Berry's greatest tunes
           D/F#                        G
And the singers in the chorus all got off on them singin' blues
          D           Em7          D/F#      G
And as the night grew older everybody was as one
         D         Em7               D/F#             G
The people on the streets came runnin' in to join in song
         D5          E5            F#5                    G
Just to hearing the opera singers singing rock and roll so pure
      D5             E5               F#5             G
I thought I saw the mayor there, But I wasn't really sure
          D     Bm  F#m A7 D
But it's al- right
         (ohh   ohh ah  Ah Uhhh)

Accurate chords and the right key, but it's not pronounced "rock-ah-ree-ah". It's pronounced rock-ahr-ia" since it's the words rock and aria.
5 stars. :)
