Madonna - American Pie

A long long time ago
I can still remember
how that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while.

Did you write the Book of Love?
And do you have faith in God above?
If the Bible tells you so
Then do you believe in rock 'n roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can it teach me how to dance real slow

Well, I know that you're in love with him
'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died

I started singin'
bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
Well, I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before,
But the man there said the music wouldn't play


Well now, in the streets the children scream
The lovers crie and the poets dream
but not a word was spoken, the churchbells overbroken
And the three man I admire the most
the Vather, Son and the Holy Ghost
They've caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

We started singing
bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

We started singing x4
