A little ditty 'bout Jack & Diane -
Two american kids growing up in the heart land.
Jack he's gonna be a football star

Diane debutante in the back seat ofJacky's car.
Suckin' on chilli dog outside the tastee freez

Diane sitting on Jacky's lap got his hands between her knees.
Jack he says "hey Diane
Let's run off behind a shady tree

Dribble off those bobby brooks
Let me do what I please" saying:
Oh yeah - life goes on

Long after the thrill of living is gone
Oh yeah - life goes on

Long after the thrill of living is gone
Now walk on.
Jack he sits back collects his thoughts for a moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean.
Well now then there, Diane, we ought to run off to the city.
Diane says: "Baby
You ain't missing a thing"
But Tack
He says:

Oh yeah - life goes on

Long after the thrill of living is gone

Oh yeah
He says - life goes on

Long after the thrill of living is gone.
Oh let it rock let it roll

Let the bible belt come and save my soul.
Holdin' on to sixteen as long as you can
Change is coming round real soon make us woman and mer
Oh yeah - life goes on
. . .
A little ditty 'bout Jack and Diane -
Two american kids doin' the best they can.
