I was a boy scout in St. Mary's troop
I had my own patrol
I had a necktie and a monkey suit
'Til I heard rock and roll.

And I was going into something that was feelin' good
It was something I could understand
I was going into something, it was feeling free
I was singing like a reborn man.

I was a Knight of St. Columba's
I used to lie a lot
I had a Bible and a rosary
And one day I forgot.

And I was going into something that was feelin' good
It was something I could understand
I was going into something, it was feeling free
I was singing like a reborn man.

I sold the shoes, I had a great career
Down at the Main Street store
'Til I decided I should disappear
'Til I walked out the door.

And I was going into something that was feelin' good
It was something I could understand
I was going into something, it was feeling free
I was singing like a reborn man (yeah).

I was a boy scout in St. Mary's troop
I had my own patrol
I had a necktie and a monkey suit
'Til I heard rock and roll.

And I was going into something that was feelin' good
It was something I could understand
I was going into something, it was feeling free
I was singing like a reborn man.
I was going into something, it was feeling free
I was singing like a reborn man (yeah).

I was a boy scout
I had my own patrol.
