(Rock & Roll Got) The Best of Me

now, there was a time when we rocked quite a lot
shoop shoop – the best of me
a few liked it cool, but many liked it hot
oo-wah oo-wah – the best of me
I can't recall what we won, or if we just fought
shoop shoop – conquered or lost
but I can say exactly what rock & roll got

rock & roll got the best of me
rock & roll got the best of me
rock & roll got the best of me
so if you don't mind too much tonight
I'm just gonna take it easy
take it easy, now, baby

but there comes a time in every man's life
shoop shoop – the best of me
when he can't dance anymore up on the blade of that knife
oo-wah oo-wah – the best of me
has to settle down, find himself a good lute, maybe a fife
shoop shoop – he tries and he tries
perhaps the ancient saxophone will get him back right

you know we stormed all the castles
we ran with the likes of handy dandy – yes we did
you saw we hatched the best hustles, until the night
we got caught swapping hadacol for cotton candy

though it's true what they say, at the end of the day
shoop shoop – the best of you
when you love something right you're gonna wear it away
oo-wah oo-wah – the best of you
I just hope the record reflects that we played & we played
shoop shoop – to all the best of you
well, we played & played & we played & we played - we
played & we played & we played & we played
played & we played & we played - we still play

and if rock & roll got the best of me
then rock & roll made the best of me
I guess like rock & roll just took back the best of me?
well, I was happy to have it so long, so gone as it may be
take it easy – I can't take it easy
take it easy now, baby – I just can't take it easy!
take it easy – go sit back up the mountain
take it easy – maybe eat up all the dandelions
take it easy – rest a while with the river
take it easy – find the inside of silence
take it easy – the best of me
