It's Still Rock and Roll to Me
by Billy Joel



what's the matter with the clothes im wearing?
cant you tell that your tie's too wide?
maybe i should buy some old tab collars?
welcome back to the age of jive
where have you been hidin' out lately, honey?
you cant dress trashy til you spend a lot of money
everybody's talkin' bout the new sound
Funny, but it's still rock in roll to me.

whats the matter with the car im driving?
cant you tell that its out of style?
should i get a set of white wall tires?
are you gunna cruise the miracle mile?
nowadays you cant be too sentimental.
your best bet's a true baby blue continental
hot funk, cool punk, even if it's old junk
it's still rock in roll to me.

oohhhhhh, it doesnt matter what they say in the papers
cause it alwats been the same old scene
there's a new band in town
but you cant get the sound from a story in a magazine
aimed at your average teen

how about a pair of pink sidewinders,
and a bright orange pair of pants?
you could really be a Beau Brummell baby
if you just give it half the chance
dont waste your money on a new set of speakers
you get more milage from a cheap pair of sneakers
next phase, new wave, dance crave, anyways
it's still rock in roll to me

whats the matter with the crowd im seeing?
dont you know that they're out of touch?
should i try and be a straight "A" student?
if you are then you think too much
dont you know about the new fashion honey?
all you need are looks and a whole lot of money
it's the next phase, new wave, dance crave, anyways,
it's still rock in roll to me
everybodys talkin bout the new sound
Funny, cause it's still rock in roll to me.
