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

[Verse 1]

C                            Em
What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
           Bb                            F
"Can't You tell that your tie's too wide?"
C                        Em
Maybe I should buy some old tab collars?
         Bb                  F
"Welcome back to the age of jive.
Em                          Am
Where have you been hidin' out lately, honey?
    Em                          D              G
You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money"

[Chorus 1]

C         Em                Bb
Everybody talking 'bout the new sound. 
F               Am             G       C
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me.

[Verse 2]

C                          Em
What's the matter with the car I'm driving?
      Bb                 F
Can't tell it's out of style?"
C                     Em
Should I get a set of white wall tires?
         Bb                         F
"Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?
Em                     Am
Nowadays you can't be too sentimental.
     Em                      D         G
Your best bet's a true baby blue Continental."

[Chorus 2]

C          Em        Bb           F
Hot funk, cool punk even if it's old junk,
     Am              G       C
it's still rock and roll to me.

[Verse 3]

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

[Verse 4]

C                   Em
How about a pair of pink sidewinders
      Bb                        F
and a bright orange pair of pants?
C                            Em
"Well, you could really be a Beau Brummel baby,
       Bb                      F     Em 
if you just give it half a chance.
Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers.
    Em                     D               G
You get more mileage from a cheaper pair of sneakers."

[Chorus 3]

C           Em        Bb           F
Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways
     Am             G          C
it's still rock and roll to me.

F     E    Am     G     F
E7    Ab   Eb     F     G

C                          Em
What's the matter with the crowd I'm seeing?
       Bb                           F
"Don't know that they're out of touch?"
C                       Em
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 lotta money."

[Chorus 3]

         C           Em        Bb           F 
It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze anyways
     Am             G         C          C
it's still rock and roll to me.
