Rock N Roll Kids

Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan

(Ireland 1994)

I remember sixty-two 
I was sixteen and so were you 
And we lived next door 
On the avenue 

Jerry Lee was big and Elvis too 
Blue jeans and blue suede shoes 
And we never knew 
What life held in store 
We just wanted to rock 'n' roll forever more 

We were the rock 'n' roll kids 
Rock 'n' roll was all we did 
And listening to those songs on the radio 
I was yours and you were mine 
That was once upon a time 
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore 

Now Johnny's in love with the girl next door 
And Mary's down at the record store 
They don't wanna be around us no more 

Golden oldies, but we hardly speak 
Too busy running to a different beat 
Hard to understand we were once like them 
How I wish we could find those rock 'n' roll days again 

We were the rock n' roll kids 
Rock 'n' roll was all we did 
And listening to those songs on the radio 
I was yours and you were mine 
That was once upon a time 
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore 

I was yours and you were mine 
That was once upon a time 
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll 
We just never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore
