New York, New York is everything they say and no place i'd rather be
Where else can you do a half-a-million things, all in a quarter to three?
When they play their music, ooh, that modern music
They pack it with a lot of style
But it's still that same old back-beat rhythm, that really, really drives 'em wild

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beatin'
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old one (?) may be barely breathin'
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beatin'

L.A., Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip is somethin' everyone should see
Neon lights and the pretty, pretty girls, all dressed so scantily
When they play their music, their hard rockin' music, they pack it with a lot of flash
But it's still that same old back-beat rhythm that really, really gets 'em in the--

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beatin'
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old one (?) may be barely breathin'
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beatin'

Johnny! Owww!

(Saxophone Solo)

D.C., San Antonio and the Liberty Town
Boston or Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City
Seattle, San Francisco too,
Everywhere there's music, real live music, bands with a million styles
But it's still that same old rock and roll music, that really, really drives 'em wild

Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-They say the heart of rock and roll is still beatin'
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now the old one (?) may be barely breathin'
But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beatin'

Yeah!

In Cleveland...Detroit!

Uh! Heart of rock and roll
