"YOUR MAMA DON'T DANCE" var en megahit med låtskriverne Kenny Loggins og Jim Messina i 1972. Elvis innlemmet den som del av et rock’n’roll-medley på albumet "Live On Stage In Memphis" i 1974, og "opphøyet" "YOUR MAMA DON'T DANCE" til en plass sammen med hans egne klassiske rock’n’roll hits fra rockens barndom.

New Jordal Swingers prøvde på denne som repertoarforslag til "Songs For The Weekend"-albumet som kom i 1988, og ved gjennomgang av NJS-titler som kunne være av interesse til "Outtakes & Rariteter"-samlingen dukket denne opp i en demoversjon. Eigil Berg og Bjørn Kristiansen deler på vokalen, bassist Einar "Wallen" Mjåland kan også høres i vokalen, og instrumentalsoliene deles mellom Ivar Hovdens saksofon og Bjørn Kristiansens gitar.

Your Mama Don't Dance

(Kenny Loggins/Jim Messina)

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

When evening comes around

And it's time to go to town

Where do you go

To rock and roll

 

Well, the old folks say

That ya gotta end your date by ten

If you're out on a date

And you bring it home late it's a sin

You know there's no excusin'

You know you're gonna lose and never win

I'll play it again



And it's all because

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

When evening comes around

And it's time to go to town

Where do you go

To rock and roll
 


You pull into a drive-in

And find a place to park

You hop into the backseat

Where you know it's nice and dark

You're just about to move in

Thinkin' it's a breeze

There's a light in your eyes

And then a guy says

"Out of the car, Longhair"

"Louise, you're comin' with me

And no more movies"



And it's all because

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

Your mama don't dance

And your daddy don't rock and roll

When evening comes around

And it's time to go to town

Where do you go

To rock and roll

Where do you go

To rock and roll

Where do you go

To rock and roll
