American Pie (美國派) - DJ In the Night

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

 

That I could make those people dance

 

And maybe theyd be happy for a while

 

But February made me shiver

 

With every paper Id deliver

 

Bad news on the doorstep

I couldn't take one more step

 

I can't remember if I cried

 

When I read about his widowed bride

 

But something touched me deep inside

 

The day the music died

 

So

Bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die

 

Thisll be the day that I die

 

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 and roll

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 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 them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die

 

Thisll be the day that I die

 

Now for ten years weve been on our own

And moss grows fat on a rolling stone

 

But thats not how it used to be

 

When the Jester sang for the king and queen

In a coat he borrowed from James Dean

And a voice that came from you and me

 

Oh and while the king was looking down

 

The Jester stole his thorny crown

The courtroom was adjourned

 

No verdict was returned

 

And while Lenin read a book on Marx

 

The quartet practiced in the park

And we sang dirges in the dark

The day the music died

 

We were singing

Bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die

 

Thisll be the day that I die

 

Helter skelter in a summer swelter

The birds flew off with a fallout shelter

Eight miles high and falling fast

Landed foul on the grass

The players tried for a forward pass

With the Jester on the sidelines in a cast

 

Now the half-time air was sweet perfume

While sergeants played a marching tune

We all got up to dance

Oh but we never got the chance

 

Cause the players tried to take the field

 

The marching band refused to yield

Do you recall what was revealed

 

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 them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die

 

Thisll be the day that I die

 

Oh and there we were all in one place

A generation lost in space

 

With no time left to start again

So come on Jack be nimble Jack be quick

Jack Flash sat on a candlestick

 

Cause fire is the devils only friend

And as I watched him on the stage

My hands were clenched in fists of rage

 

No angel born in hell

 

Could break that Satans spell

 

And as the flames climbed high into the night

To light the sacrificial rite

I saw Satan laughing with delight

The day the music died

 

He was singing

Bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die

Thisll 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

 

I went down to the sacred store

 

Where Id heard the music years before

But the man there said the music wouldn't play

And 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 most

The Father Son and Holy Ghost

 

They caught the last train for the coast

The day the music died

 

Bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

 

Singing thisll be the day that I die

Thisll be the day that I die

 

Bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing thisll be the day that I die
