Keep on Rockin'





Lyrics Edit

The who

Puppets of Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend

The Rolling Stones

We're getting ready to do some rock or roll shows

I'm wearing make-up, and Keith has powdered his nose

I still go crazy just like a rock star should, hey

Pour me a Bovril, Jerry, mm that tastes good

I'm just as sexy and it all gets too much

The chicks go wild when I wiggle my crutch

The times are a-changin', but the band's stood the test

Noone can deny that the old songs are... old


But what can an old fart do? Join a job retraining scheme?

I may have no voice, still I got no choice

But to keep on, keeping on

Keeping on! Keeping on, keeping on, keeping on

Keepin' on rockin'


Paul McCartney

I like to keep up with the new bands in the biz

I've worked with Elvis Costello, whoever the hell he is

I'm still gigging, the crowds haven't changed at all

Wembley sold out, too bad! I'm at the Albert Hall


The Who

The Who are back playing the same old games

Each night on stage, smash up our zimmerframes

Inbetween solos we take a little nap

And people try to put us down just because we're crap


But what can an old fart do? Take an open university course?

We don't play so hot, but it's all we got

So we keep on, keeping on

Keeping on! Keeping on, keeping on, keeping on

Keepin' on rockin'


Cliff Richard

After all these years at the very top, my enthusiasm doesn't fade

I am the Peter Pan of Pop, the little boy who never got laid

I'm still loved by so many kids, my popularity's never fagged

I'm old enough to be their dad, but I can't because I've never been shagged


But what can an old fart do? Tinker about on an allotment all day?

Though the music's died, all we're qualified for

Is keeping on, keeping on

Keeping on! Keeping on, keeping on, keeping on

Keepin' on rocking'

(ad-lib to fade)
