Songtekst

{transcribed by Adri Verhoef, 23-7-2013}

Where were you in sixty-eight,
In sixty-eight Julie was Johnnie's date
Two kids growing together livin' each day
As if time was slippin' away.
Oh, they were just sixteen
And their love a teenage dream.
They passed the time, they crossed the line
The line that ran between.
Julie an' Johnnie now you've made it.

[chorus]:
But life goes on
You know it ain't easy.
You just gotta be strong,
If you're one of the six teens.
And life goes on
You know, you know it ain't easy,
You know you'll never go wrong,
'Cause you're all part of the six teens.

Suzie and Davey
Got to make the big time,
Maybe they can put it all together
In a show that lasts forever.
Oh, they would walk the strip at nights
And dream they saw their names in lights,
On Desolation Boulevard
They'll light the faded light.
Suzie and Davey, you can make it.

But life goes on
You know it ain't easy.
You just gotta be strong,
If you're one of the six teens.
And life (and life) goes on (goes on)
You know, you know it ain't easy,
You know you'll never go wrong,
'Cause you're all part of the six teens.

[break]

So where were you in sixty-eight,
When Bobby and Billy thought
That sixty-eight was out of date.
They took the flowers from their hair
And tried to make us all aware,
Too bad, too late.
So they lived from day to day
And tried to do it all their way
But sixty-eight was sixty-eight
No matter what they say.
Bobby and Billy, maybe you'll make it one day.

But life goes on
You know it ain't easy.
You just gotta be strong,
If you're one of the six teens.
And life (and life) goes on (goes on)
You know, you know it ain't easy,
You know you'll never go wrong / (you know you'll never go wrong)
'Cause you're all ...

And life (and life) goes on (goes on)
You know, you know it ain't easy,
You know you'll never go wrong (you'll never go wrong)
'Cause you're all part of the six teens

And life (and life) goes on (goes on) [fade]
