				 ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC: THE BEATLES (Chuck Berry) 4/4 - 168

None of the lyrics for this version by The Beatles that are going around
on the internet, were totally correct!
I have tried to reproduce, as precise as possible, the words John Lennon
is singing, but sometimes it's just a guessing game...
