The Heart of Rock & Roll Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I'd rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three
Verse 2
When they play their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really drives 'em wild
Verse 3
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating
Verse 4
LA, Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty pretty girls
All dressed so scantily
Verse 5
When they play their music
That hard rock music
They like it with a lot of flash
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really, really kicks 'em in the
Verse 6
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating
Verse 7
Johnny, aw
Verse 8
DC, San Antone and the Liberty Town, Boston and Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco, too
Everywhere there's music, real live music, bands with a million styles
But It's still that some old rock and roll music
That really, really drives 'em wild
Verse 9
They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Verse 10
Now the old boy may be barely breathing
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating, yeah
Verse 11
In Cleveland
Detroit
Oh, heart of rock and roll
