Heart of Rock and Roll
by Huey Lewis



New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I'd rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three

When they palt their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really drives 'em wild

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

LA, Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty pretty girls
All dressed so scantily

When they play their music
That hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm

That really kicks 'em in the
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing

But the heart of rock and roll is still beating
DC, San Antone and the Liberty Town, Boston and Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco, too
Everywhere there's music, real live music, bands with a million styles

But It's still that some old rock and roll music
That really drives 'em wild
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em

Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll is still beating
