Well it was New Years Eve
I was 14 at the time
I was celebratin' 4 AM
With them hoodlum friends of mine
I heard a boy named Elvis Presley
Singin' "That's Alright Mama" on the radio
And it turned me on

I been hooked on music
Hooked on music from that moment on

Well all my friends thought I had one brick less than a load
'Cause I'd stop the car and I'd jump out
And start dancin' in the road
When I heard Jerry Lee Lewis singin'
"Whole lot of shakin' goin' on'"
It turned me on

And I been hooked on music
Hooked on music from that moment on

Wella wella I'd steal them fancy hubcaps
Off them cowboy's pickup trucks
Fender skirts and mudflaps
Anything to make a buck
I'd sell 'em right back to 'em
Out behind the rodeo
Just to make a little money
To treat my little honey
To a rock and roll show

And I hung around that skatin' rink where Buddy Holly played
I could not believe one man could have such fun
And still get paid
When I heard that local DJ playin'
"That'll be the day"
It turned me on 'said turned me on
I been hooked on music
Hooked on music from that moment on

Hey hey

Alright hit it son

Woo hoo hoo hoo


I finally got some tickets to see Elvis live and hot
And my girlfriend almost jumped my bones
Going back to the parking lot
I knew that it was not my great physique, good looks and charm
That left that Texas teenybopper's nailprints in my arm

So I bought myself a guitar and I wrote me a lady's song
And I could change the name to fit my latest flame
And that sucker never came out wrong
I'd sit back and sing it soft and low
Watch 'em as it slowly turned 'em on, I'd turn 'em on
I been hooked on music
Hooked on music from that moment on

Well dee dee dee dee
Dee dee dee dee
Dee dee dee dee

Hooked on music

I been hooked on music
Hooked on music from that moment on
