Keeping The Face 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
'Til 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 matador boots
Only Flagg Brothers had them with the 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
Oh YeahWe 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
Lost a lot of fights But it taught me how to lose O.K.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
Now 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 'n' 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
