The Lyrics Are Below

Keeping the Faith

 

 If it seems like I've been lost

In let's remember

If you think I'm feeling older

And missing my younger days

Oh, then you should have known

Me much better

Cause my past is something 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

Oh

Cause I never felt the desire

Til their music set me on fire

And then I was saved, yeah

That's why I'm keeping the faith

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Keeping the faith

 

 

We wore matador boots

Only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel

Iridescent socks with the same color shirt

And a tight pair of chinos

Oh

I put on my shark skin jacket

You know the kind with the velvet collar

And ditty-bop shades

Oh yeah

I took a fresh pack of Luckies

And a mint called Sen-Sen

My old man's Trojans

And his Old Spice after shave

Oh

Combed my hair in a pompadour

Like the rest of the Romeos wore

A permanent wave

Yeah

We were keeping the faith

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Keeping 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 ole days weren't

Always good

And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

 

 

Learned stickball as a formal education

Lost a lot of fights

But it taught me how to lose O.K.

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 being macho

Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food

Drank a lot of take-home pay

I thought I was the Duke of Earl

When I made it with a red-haired girl

In the Chevrolet

Oh yeah

We were keeping the faith

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Keeping the faith

 

 

You know the good ole days weren't

Always good

And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

 

 

Now I told you my reasons

For the whole revival

Now I'm going outside to have

An ice cold beer in the shade

Oh

I'm going to listen to my 45's

Ain't it wonderful to be alive

When the rock 'n' roll plays

Yeah

When the memory stays

Yeah

I'm keeping the faith

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Keeping the faith

I'm keeping the faith

Yes I am
