Lyrics

Rock and Roll Forever (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
Do you remember when you learned to play your guitar?
And a three-chord song was a hard one
Yeah we had such fun just singing along
Every rock and roll song was a loud one
Then the other guys all with stars in their eyes
Bought a bass guitar and a drum set
And the tambourine man plays as loud as he can
And the rock and roll sound is the best yet

Chorus
Youve got to get back to your roots
Dont play it too clever
If you do then you'll never
Ever get it together
Get back to the simple tunes of honeymoons
And teenage love affairs
Don't play it too clever
Rock and roll forever


Verse 2
Learn to harmonise like Don and Phil
And the sound gets a little bit sweeter
Sing a song about the girl of your dreams
And you're wondering - how can you meet her
Then the boys in the band go Bop doo wap
And the sound gets a little bit fatter
And the tambourine man plays as loud as he can
And the rest of the world doesnt matter

Repeat chorus

Bridge
Those teenage dreams will never die
They're only a heartbeat away
Peggy Sue and Mary Lou
Oh Carol I love you the same today
