    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 old matador boots
    Only Flagg Brothers had them with a 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

    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
