And the beat goes on

once upon a time

leaving on a jet plane

rocking on the railroad

driving in the fast lane

walking on the wild side

we are family

everybody get up and sing


those were the days my friend

we thought they’d never end

we’d live the life we choose

a family affair

only a phone call away

and so it goes
