Bob Seger--'Old-Time Rock And Roll'

 

Just take those old records off the shelf
I'll sit and listen to 'em by myself
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock 'n' roll
Don't try to take me to a disco
You'll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I'll be late for the door
I like that old time rock 'n' roll
Ooh

Still like that old time rock 'n' roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul ooh
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock 'n' roll
Won't go to hear them play a tango
I'd rather hear some blues or funky old soul
There's only one sure way to get me to go
Start playing old time rock 'n' roll
Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock 'n' roll

Still like that old time rock 'n' roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock 'n' roll

Still like that old time rock and roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock 'n' roll 
With that old time rock 'n' roll 
With that old time rock 'n' roll

Still like that old time rock 'n' roll.

NOT Bob Seger--'Old-Time Politicos'

 

Just give me someone who thinks,
'cause right now we're on the brink

Today's leaders all lack a soul
Constant lying is taking a toll
 

Just one dude who's above the fray,

who doesn't make me hope and pray
I 'd like to believe cooler heads will prevail,
but Rambo diplomacy surely will fail?
Ooh


 

Just give that old-time political smarts,
before World War Three it starts--ooh!
I reminisce about the days of old
just give old-time politicos

Don't want to hear your bluster
'cause being wrong is your primary goal,
like waking up to a lump of coal
on Christmas morning, our stockings overflow
Call me a liberal, call me what you will
if that means thinking, it'll fit the bill
Today's leaders don't even have a soul,
just give me old-time politicos

Just want some old-time politicos
mount the hobby horse, yes, we're riding the pole
I reminisce about the days of old,
just give me old-time politicos

Just want some old-time politicos
mount the hobby horse, yes, we're riding the pole
I reminisce about the days of old,
just give me old-time politicos

Just give me old-fashioned politicos
