American Pie Lyrics

American Pie (美国派) - Studio Players

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 they'd be happy for a while

 

February made me shiver with every paper I'd 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 old boys were drinking whiskey and rye

 

Singing this'll be the day that I die this'll 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 bronc'n' 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 old boys were drinking whiskey and rye

Singing this'll be the day that I die this'll be the day that I die

 

Now for ten years we've been on our own

 

And moss grows fat on a rolling stone

 

But that's 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 old boys were drinking 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

 

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

 

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 the Holy Ghost

 

They caught the last train for the coast

 

The day the music died

 

And they were singing bye bye Miss American Pie

 

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye

 

Singing this'll be the day that I die this'll be the day that I die

 

They were singing bye bye Miss American Pie

 

Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry

 

Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye

 

Singing this'll be the day that I die
