Rocky burned up the movie screen, and I was turnin' seventeen
Tie-dyed shirts and Levis jeans, lookin' cool at the Dairy Queen
Tryin' to impress a young woman in her Sunday dress

[Chorus]
And that was 1976, didn't know who I was yet
A pretty little blonde haired girl stole my heart and changed my world
Two kids and a moonlit sky, a little love on a Friday night
Built a fire that just wont quit, that was 1976

My high school days I packed away, set my sights on a bigger stage
Jimmy Carter moved to DC, a Georgia boy just like me,
Life seemed easy, nothin' much that we needed

[Chorus]

Eight track tapes were still in style and Elvis was still alive
Wonder Woman sure looked fine, Bionic Man was still Prime Time
And that girl I liked, we kept on tryin' 'till we got it right

[Chorus]

Yeah, that was 1976, didn't know who we were yet
Built a fire that just wont quit and that was 1976
We built a fire that just wont quit, that was 1976.
