In 1961 you told me rock'n'roll was done,
In 1962 you told me rock'n'roll was through.
In 1963 you told me it was under me.
In 1964 you didn't wanna rock'n'roll no more.

But I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay,
I told you rock'n'roll will not fade away!
I told you so, 'cause I'd go for more,
I told you so I told you so,
I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay!

In 1965 you put down blues'n'boogie'n'jive
In 1966 you started out on your acid licks.
In 1967 "cool" showed you the way to heaven.
In 1968 you told me everything mellow was great,

But I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay,
I told you rock'n'roll will not fade away!
I told you so, 'cause I'd go for more,
I told you so I told you so,
I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay!

In 1969 you told me it was out of time.
In 1970 you lost your lament of frailty
In 1971 you started fighting and havin' fun,
In 1972 you really started comin' right through

But I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay,
I told you rock'n'roll will not fade away!
I told you so, 'cause I'd go for more,
I told you so I told you so,
I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay!

In 1973 your radio's gettin' through to me.
In 1974 everybody rockin'... some more
In 1975 everybody feelin' that solid jive!
I told you rock'n'roll was here to stay!
I told you rock'n'roll win not fade away!
I told you so! I told you so! I told you so!
