American Pie - Madonna


A long, long time ago
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
And I knew that 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
Now do you believe in rock 'n' roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow

Well, I know that you’re in love with him
‘Cause I saw you dancing 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 that I was out of luck
The day the music died

I started singing
Bye bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good ol’ boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that I die
This’ll 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 screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They 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 ol’ boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die

Bye bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good ol’ boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die

We started singing
We started singing
We started singing
We started singing
