* Verse 1

Little ditty about Jack and Diane,
Two American kids growin' up in the heartland.
Jacky's gonna be a football star.
Diane, debutante backseat of Jacky's car.

* 4-bar break

* Verse 2

Suckin' on chili dogs outside the "Tastee Freeze.
Diane's sittin' on Jacky's l.
He's got his hand between her knees.
Jacky say "Hey Diane, lets run off behind a shady tree."
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks, let me do what I please.
He say,

* Chorus

"Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone."
He said, "Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin is gone."
They walk on.

* 8-bar break

* Verse 3

Jacky sits back, reflects his thoughts for the moment,
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean.
"Well you know Diane, we oughtta run of the city."
Diane says, "Baby, you aint missin' no-thing."
Jacky say-a,

* Chorus 2

"Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone.
Oh yeah, I say, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone."

* 3-bar break

* Bridge

Gonna let it rock,
Let it roll
Let the Bible Belt come down and save my soul.
Hold on to 16 as long as you can.
Changes come around real soon, make us women and men.

* 8-bar break

* Chorus

"Oh yeah, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone.
Oh yeah, I say, life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone."

Little ditty about Jack and Diane,
Two American kids doing the best they can.
