Verse-- We wore matador boots Only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel Iridescent socks with the same color shirt And a tight pair of chinos I put on my shark skin jacket You know the kind with the velvet collar And ditty-bop shades I took a fresh pack of Luckies And a mint called Sen-Sen My old man's Trojans And his Old Spice after shave Combed my hair in a pompadour Like the rest of the Romeos wore
Chorus-- A permanent wave yeah We were keeping the faith Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Keeping the faith

Verse-- Learned stickball as a formal education Lost a lot of fights nut it taught me how to lose O.K. I heard about sex but not enough I found you could dance and still look tough anyway I found out a man ain't just being macho Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food drank a lot of take-home pay I thought I was the Duke of Earl when I made it with a red-haired girl
Chorus-- In a Chevrolet We were keeping the faith Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Keeping the faith
AGD[[em7]] You know the good old days weren't always good And A7tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems --- last verse --- DNow I told you my reasons for the whole revival Now I'm going outside to have an ice cold beer in the shade G I'm going to listen to my 45's, ain't it wonderful to be alive When the rock 'n' roll A6playGs Yeah When the memory A6stayGs Yeah I'm keeping the A6faith GYeah, yeah, yeah, yeah DKeeping the faith...
