Keeping The Faith

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

if it seems like
i've been lost in
let's remember
if you think
i'm feelin' older
and missin'
my younger days

ho oh then you
shoulda known me
much better
'cause my past is
somethin' that never
got in my way
oh no

still i would not
be here now
if i never had
the hunger
and i'm not ashamed
to say the wild boys
were my friends

ho oh 'cause i never
felt the desire
till their
music set me on fire
then i was saved
yeah

that's why
i'm keepin' the faith
yeah yeah yeah yeah
keepin' the faith

we wore
matador boots
only flagg brothers
had 'em with
a cuban heel

iridescent socks
with the same
color shirt
and a tight pair
of chinos

ho i put on
my sharkskin jacket
you know the kind
with the
velvet collar
and diddy-bop
shades
oh yeah

took a fresh pack
of luckies and
a mint called sen-sen
my old man's trojans
and his old spice
aftershave

ho oh combed my hair
in a pompadour
like the rest
of the romeos wore
a permanent wave
yeah

we were
keepin' the faith
yeah yeah yeah yeah
keepin' the faith

you can get
just so much
from a good thing
you can linger
too long
in your dreams

say goodbye
to the oldies
but goodies
'cause the
good ol' days
weren't always good

and tomorrow
ain't as bad
as it seems
learned stickball
as a formal
education

lost a lotta fights
but it taught me
how to lose ok
ho oh
i heard about sex
but not enough

i found you could
dance and still
look tough anyway
oh yes i did
i found out a man
ain't just bein' macho

ate an awful lotta
late-night
drive-in food
drank a lotta
take-home pay
i thought i was
the duke of earl

when i made it with
a red-haired girl
in the chevrolet
aw yeah
we were
keepin' the faith
yeah yeah yeah yeah
keepin' the faith

oh oh ho oh oh ho
oh oh ho oh oh oh
oh oh ho oh oh ho
oh oh ho oh
oh oh ho oh oh ho
oh oh ho oh oh oh

you know
the good ol' days
a-weren't
always good

tomorrow ain't
as bad as it seems
i told you
my reasons for
the whole revival

now i'm goin' outside
to have an
ice-cold beer
in the shade

ho oh i'm gonna
listen to my 45's
ain't it wonderful
to be alive
when the
rock and roll plays
yeah

when the
memory stays yeah
i'm keepin' the faith
yeah yeah yeah yeah
keepin' the faith

i'm keepin' the faith
yes i am
you know
i'm keepin' the faith
oh yes i am
you know
i'm keepin' the faith
oh you know i will

i'm-a keepin' the faith
ha yeah
ooh keepin' the faith
oh yes i am
keepin' the faith
