Standard Tuning
Ska strumming except for the the last time "You can keep dancing..." 

C				C
Forty years ago there was a Jumpin' Jazz Jamaica scene 
C							F
They could hear these tunes drifting down from New Orleans 
C						  F
They put the two together in a thing they called Ska 
C			   F			          C	
And sent it off to England in the back of Laurel Aiken's car 

C				C
It was 1964 and the rhythm just wouldn't stop, 
C		C				 F
People banging on the door to hear "My boy Lollipop" 
C					    F
Then the 70's came and with it the 2 Tone scene...
C			         	     F	               C
People shakin' their heads at the rudies on the record machine 

C				C
Now the 90's are here with the new bands bringin' it to you 
C					   F     
Skins and rudies-and even some punk rock, too!
C                                                           F
But the boys are still playing and the music is coming out live! 
C                       F                     C
Down at your jukebox, dancing on a Saturday night! 

*piano solo same as verse*

C                         C
In their eyes where does Chuck Berry fit? 
C                           C                                F
Well he influences the Ska, that's the long and the short of it 
C                     C                             F
He played his guitar and they heard it on the radio 
C                         F                  C
And the rest is history, just as everybody knows... 

C                                    C
Forty years ago there was a Jumpin' Jazz Jamaica scene 
C                                                    F
You can check them rudies dancing at the record machine 
C                       C                               F
The style is timeless, with Fred Perry and Doc Marten boots... 
C                      F                                  C
You can keep dancing, just as long as you remember your roots
C                      F                                  C 
You can keep rocking, just as long as you remember your roots
C                      F                                  C 
You can keep dancing, just as long as you remember your roots
