Cochran, Eddie - Twenty Flight Rock Lyrics




Oh well, I've got a girl with a record machine
When it comes to rockin' she's the queen
We love to dance on a Saturday night
All alone, I can hold her tight
But she lives in a twentiest floor up town
The elevator's broken down

So I walked one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
Up on the twelfth I started to drag
Fifteenth floor I'm ready to sag
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock

When she calles me up on the telephone
Said c'mon over honey, I'm all alone
I said baby, you're mighty sweet
But I'm in the bed with a achin' feet
This went on for a couple of days
But I couldn't stay away

So I walked one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
Up on the twelfth I'm ready to drag
Fifteenth floor I started to sag
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock

Well, they sent to Chicago for repairs
Till it's a-fixed I'm using the stairs
Hope they hurry up before it's too late
Want my baby too much to wait
All this climbin' is gettin' me down
They'll find my corpse draped over a rail

But I climbed one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
Up on the twelfth I'm ready to drag
Fifteenth floor I started to sag
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock

Cochran, Eddie Twenty Flight Rock Comments
  1. roland johansson

    Eddie, only 17 (or 18) and already in the major league of RnRoll. I'm lost of words.

  2. joey manson

    The Maid was the only one who knew how to groove to this Rock.
    Not sure if to be offended or back handily proud of Black Hollywood flr a major Win. Looking back then stuffy corpaorate white folk were lame .😄

  3. HarryWebb46

    American Superman!

  4. Newzionis

    Jayne Mansfield looks more bouncy than Mariska Hargitay

  5. Bearlogg

    People mourning xxtenations and my slow ass is here mourning this guy.
    He died way to young man.

  6. Martijn Stuart

    So weird that Eddie Cochran and Jayne Mansfield both died in car accidents

  7. T Hoot

    I love this era so much, such a gentleman, the songs are so innocent but they represent such frustration in the era there’s nothing sleazy about it. Eddie died far too young and little did he know the influence he’d have on modern music. RIP legend

  8. Tejas Sabnis

    If this song wouldn't have existed, then there would be no Beatles today.

  9. Pierre Lalonde

    So cool, one of the best, who is the girl dancing??

  10. Hervé GARZENNE

    Le meilleur !!!

  11. Lindsey Allison Westhaven

    I dunno - anyone see the very close similarities between Cochran and Johnny Depp's performance as the Hot Rodding, Rock `n Rolling Rebel in Cry-Baby? Blonde Bombshell, Jane Mansfield's part played by sultry seducer good-bad girl Traci Lords in the same movie.

  12. ITILII

    Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochran, both died so young and tragically....2 of the strongest influences on the Quarrymen, later named The Beatles, in honor of Buddy Holly and The crickets.... by their most famous fan, John Lennon

  13. Mark Markofkane

    Coolest of the cool. Another that was gone too soon.

  14. Hussein Hussein

    Jayne Mansfield....I'm melting like chocolate

  15. leeb127

    Jayne Mansfield! ( . )( . )

    Lindsey Allison Westhaven

    or this - ) (i) ( = 8====D- - -

  16. Webly Pug

    It's been reported that Jane's kids were easily recognizable from the stretch marks on their lips.

  26. AJ the Marauder

  27. burstcasino

    Hey restore the version of Gene Vincent's "Be-Bop-A-Lua" from this movie.

  28. DLeCo

  29. ITILII

  49. Actors317

    Thank you Paul McCartney for introducing me to Eddie Cochran's music.

    Théoxème Cornélius

    In my case, it was Richard Hawley 😉 That tells us how important Eddie Cochran's music is!

    ITILII

    Thank you Eddie, for writing the song that got Paul into The Beatles !!!

  50. Athena Minerva

    That was the time when the US was worthy of respect. I really despise this idiot in the footage who shouted at and was arrogant towards the lady. American culture is so full of enslavement.

  51. Angelo Lopez

    forgive me for not being all too familiar, but did eddie copy elvis’ style or the other way around?

    Mark Esquivel Arvizu

    Elvis was the first big hit that other labels wanted copies of....Eddie, Ricky Nelson, Gene Vincent, Tommy Steele, Richie Valens...not to say any were less talented than he was.

  52. Stream of Consciousness

    He looks like he's going to crush himself, or wrap himself up in a ball like a armadillo.

    They really tried to get the Elvis eyes on him.

  53. Slomofogo

    "I'm too tired to COCK!"

  54. McEdon Matt

    That Blond Rocks :)

  55. NYC girl

    Fantastic video. According to John Lennon Paul Mccartney played this song when they first met & John was so impressed he asked Paul to join the band who became "The Beatles".

  56. D'angelo Russell

    Paul McCartney played this when he met John for the first time right?

    Diego Fernandez
