If it seems like I've been lost
If you think I'm feeling older
Oh, then you should have known
Cause my past is something that never
Oh no
Still I would not be here now
And I'm not ashamed to say
'Til their music set me on fire
That's why I'm keeping the faith
Keeping the faith
We wore matador boots
Iridescent socks with the same color shirt
You know the kind with the velvet collar
Oh yeah
And a mint called Sen-Sen
And his Old Spice after shave
Combed my hair in a pompadour
A permanent wave
We were keeping the faith
Keeping the faith
You can get just so much
You can linger too long
Say goodbye to the
Cause the good ole days weren't
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems
Learned stickball as a formal education
But it taught me how to lose O.K.
I heard about sex
I found you could dance
Oh yes I did
Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food
I thought I was the Duke of Earl
In the Chevrolet
We were keeping the faith
Keeping the faith
You know the good ole days weren't
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems
Now I told you my reasons
Now I'm going outside to have
Ain't it wonderful to be alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm keeping the faith
