(From film soundtrack for "American Pie"?)


A long long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me slow
And I knew that if I had no chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so

Now do you believe in rock and roll
Think that music save your mortal soul
If you will teach me how to dance real slow

Well I know that you're in love with him
'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
And I think I'm livin' the blues.

I was a lonely teenage bronkin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pick up truck
But I knew that I was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singing

Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drawn my Chevvy to the Levy but the Levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing "This'll be the day that I die,
This'll be the day that I die."

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
When I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But women said the music wouldn't play

Well now in the streets, the children scream
The lovers cry and the poets dream
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken

And the three men I admire the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.
We started singing

Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drawn my Chevvy to the Levy but the Levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing "This'll be the day that I die,
This'll be the day that I die."

Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drawn my Chevvy to the Levy but the Levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing "This'll be the day that I die,
This'll be the day that I die."

We started singing,
We started singing,
We started singing,
We started singing.
