I was born in '53.
Along with rock and roll and TV.
I was born in '53,
So was my wife to be.

Bo Didley, Bo Didley have you heard?
Your beat's still heard around the world.
Bo Didley, Bo Didley have you heard?
Around the world your beat's still heard.

Yeah, boom,
Yeah, boom,
I am the baby boom.

Born in a hospital, weren't no room.
To put all of the babies in the nursery room.
Born in a hospital, weren't no room.
They took to calling that a "boom."

Bo Didley, Bo Didley you're the one.
Give the Bo Didley beat to the boom generation.
Bo Didley, Bo Didley you're the one.
Some have forgot, but I have not. .

I grew up I wanted this and that.
Saw Davey Crockett want a 'coon skin cap.
I grew up I wanted this and that.
Took to calling that a "fad".

Bo Didley, Bo Didley I must say.
Such a valuable gift to give away.
Bo Didley, Bo Didley I must say.
Such a valuable gift to give away. .

Well now the boom is having kids.
And what we do - man, we do big.
Now the boom is having kids.
What we do - man, we do big.

Bo Didley, Bo Didley you'll live on.
Give the Bo Didley Beat to the new generations.
Bo Didley, Bo Didley you'll live on.
You may die, but your beat will not.
