Well I was born back in '59
I didn't come late I was right on time
We had a '59 Ford that never ran quite right
We'd catch a drive-in movie every Saturday night

Well times were hard for the working man
Daddy tried to understand

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
'Cause everything I love's from '59

Well the prince said "Hey Grace Kelly, would you be my wife?"
And Bobby Darin sang 'Mack The Knife'
Well they took Eddie Cochran what could we do
Once he was gone we knew that rock and roll was through

We had Technicolor at the scene of the crime
Coupe DeVilles rolling off of the line

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
'Cause everything I love's from '59

'59

Everything I love
Everything I love
Everything I love
Everything

I wonder where as time rolls on
All that style from 1959 has gone
But I've got memories in the back of my mind
What it was like to be alive in '59

We had Technicolor at the scene of the crime
Coupe DeVilles rolling off the line

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
'Cause everything I love
Everything I love
Everything I love's from '59

'59
'59
'59
'59
