Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
What's the matter with the car I'm driving
Can't you tell that it's out of style?

Left allemande your corner and you dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Where you been hiding out lately honey?
Swing and promenade a whole lot of money
Everybody's talking about the news sounding funny
But it's still rock and roll to me


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru
You dosado
Swing thru tonight, the boy run right
Half tag, follow your neighbor and spread
The girls trade, recycle, and then you swing
You take your girl and promenade that ring
Everybody's talking about the news sounding funny
But it's still rock and roll to me


TAG

You know it's still rock and roll to me

It's Still Rock And Roll To Me Lyrics ID: 903

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 white wall tires?
"Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?
Nowadays you can't be too sentimental
You 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 a 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.

Lyrics by Billy Joel.
Recorded by Billy Joel.
