What is that sound? Can you hear it?
It smells a little like teen spirit
Nirvana as a band could free ya
Though what they said, I’ve no idea!
That Rhapsody, Bohemian
A super hit from way back when
That Freddy took us for a ride
What did it mean? Well, you decide
Paradise by dashboard lights
A song that rocked into the night
Blow kiss to Meatloaf, though he’s gone
His song goes on. And on. And on
He writes the songs the whole world sings
Orchestral endings long would ring
Those schmaltzy ballads and tan a-glow
I loved that Barry Manilow…
Want to rock around the clock?
That time when youth would rock in socks?
A golden sound that made folk pause
Made teens rebel without a cause!
You’re not alone if you love Elvis
Those eyes, those lips, that swinging pelvis
We crowned him king of rock and roll
And, wow, that man looked good in gold!
How great it is to reminisce
About the music that persists
To stir the hearts of all who hear it
And YES it smells just like teen spirit!!
