Lyrics

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 Till 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 I lost a lot of fights But it taught me How to lose okay 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 and 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 You know I'm keeping the faith Oh, yes, I am You know I'm keeping the faith Oh, you know I am
