    BILLY JOEL

    Glass Houses 1980

    It's Still Rock And Roll To Me



    What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
    "Can't you tell that your tie's too wide?"
    Maybe I should buy some old tab collars?
    "Welcome back to the age of jive.
    Where have you been hidin' out lately, honey?
    You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money."
    Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new sound
    Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me

    What's the matter with the car I'm driving?
    "Can't you tell that it's out of style?"
    Should I get a set of while wall tires?
    "Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?
    Nowadays you can't be too sentimental
    Your best bet's a true baby blue Continental."
    Hot funk, cool punk, even if it's old junk
    It's still rock and roll to me

    Oh, it doesn't matter what they say in the papers
    'Cause it's always been the same old scene.
    There's a new band in town
    But you can't get the sound from a story in a magazine...
    Aimed at your average teen

    How about a pair of pink sidewinders
    And a bright orange pair of pants?
    "You could really be a Beau Brummel baby
    If you just give it half a chance.
    Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers,
    You get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers."
    Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways
    It's still rock and roll to me

    What's the matter with the crowd I'm seeing?
    "Don't you know that they're out of touch?"
    Should I try to be a straight `A' student?
    "If you are then you think too much.
    Don't you know about the new fashion honey?
    All you need are looks and a whole lotta money."
    It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways
    It's still rock and roll to me

    Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new sound
    Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me
