its still rock and roll to me

Billy Joel



It's still Rock'n'Roll to me
(Billy Joel)

C                            E
What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?

           Bb                            F
"Can't You tell that your tie's too wide?"

C                        E
Maybe I should bye some old tab collar?

         Bb                  F
"Welcome back to the age of jive.

Em                          Am
Where have you been hiddin' out lately, honey?

    Em                          D              G
You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money"

C         Em                Bb
Everybody talking 'bout the new sound. 

F               Am             G       C
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me.

C                          E
What's the matter with the car I'm driving?

      Bb                 F
Can't tell it's out of style?"

C                     E
Should I get a set of white wall tires?

         Bb                         F
"Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?

Em                     Am
Nowadays you cant't be too sentimental.

     Em                      D         G
Your best bet's a true baby, blue Continental."

C          Em        Bb           F
Hot funny, cool punk even if it's old junk,

     Am              G       C
it's still rock and roll to me.

C    G                            F
Oh    it doesn't matter what they say in the papaers,

            E                              Am
'cause it's always been the same old scene.

          G                        F
There's a new band in town but you can't get the sound 

       E                   Ab 
from a story in a magazine.

Eb                          F         G
aimed at your average teen.

C                   E
How about a pair of pink sidewinders

      Bb                        F
and a bright orange pair of pants?

C                            E
"Well, you could really be a Beau Brummel baby,

       Bb                      F     Em 
if you just give it half a chance.

                            Am
Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers.

    Em                     D               G
You get more milage from a cheaper pair of sneakers."

C           Em        Bb           F
Next phase, new wave, dance trace, anyways

     Am             G          C
it's still rock and roll to me.

G
F     E    Am     G     F
E7    Ab   Eb     F     G

C                          E
What's the matter with the crowd I'm seeing?

       Bb                           F
"Don't know that they're out of tough?"

C                       E
Should I try to be a straight 'A' student?"

      Bb                           F      Em
If You are, then you think too much."

Em                        Am
"Don't you know about the new fashion, honey?

Em                           D          G
All you need are looks and a whole lota money."

         C           Em        Bb            
It's the next phase, new wave, dance trace; anyways

     Am             G         C          C
it's still rock and roll to me.

C           E                 Bb
Everybody's talking about the new sound. 

                G                       C9
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me.
