Long Live Rock & Roll

Well I was born
The year that disco died
And u2 was in high school
Thank the lord that they survived
Got my first taste, on a seeger '45
And since that kiss
I've rocked all day, and partied every night

We still argue about who's better
Elton john or billy joel
We still wonder if kurt really wrote
The songs she sang in hole
No we'll never stop believing
It's the journey of our lives
So won't you help me pour some sugar
On these memories tonight?

Singin'

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sayin'
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Summer of '96, I got my first guitar
And played it till my fingers said "you're gonna be a star"
Grunge was everything
At least it was to me
A marshall in my chevy sprint
Just runnin' down a dream

We still argue 'bout who's better
Motley cruë or g n' r
We still can't believe van halen
Turned into van hagar
Now the record shops are gone for good
And no one seems to care
But me and you, and all our friends
Keep living on that prayer

Singin'

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sayin'
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Went to bed in cleveland
Woke up in tenessee
No matter where I roam tonight
I'm chasing history

We still argue about who's better
The beatles or the stones
They're forever 27
Jimmy, janis, brian jones
And we stand here in their memory
'Cause their songs, they still survive
So throw your lighters up
And darling sing with me tonight
Come on

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sayin'
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll

Long live rock
Long live roll
Long live big guitars and music for the soul
Sing it
Don't give up, don't grow old
Long live crazy nights and records made of gold
Long live rock and roll
