Jack & Diane Lyrics

A little ditty, 'bout Jack & Diane -
Two american kids growin' up in the heart land.
Jacky gonna be a football star
Diane's debutante in back seat of Jacky's car.

Suckin' on chili dog, outside the taste freeze
Diane sitting on Jacky's lap got his hands between her knees
Jacky say "Hey, Diane,let's run off behind the shady trees
Dribble off those bobby brooks let me do what I please" saying:

Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone, sayin'
Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone
They walk on

Jacky sits back collects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well man there and Diane, we ought to run off to the city
Diane says, "Baby you ain't missing a thing"
but Jacky says:

Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone
Oh yeah - they says - life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone

So let it rock, let it roll
Let the bible belt, come and save my soul
Holdin' on to sixteen as long as you can
Change is coming round real soon make us woman and men

Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone
Oh yeah - they says - life goes on
Long after the thrill of living is gone

A little ditty, 'bout Jack and Diane -
Two american kids doin', best they can
