You Can't Stop the Music

Ray Davies, released on Soap Opera, © Davray Music Ltd. 1975

.

Let's all raise a glass

To the rock stars of the past,

Those that made it,

Those that faded,

Those that never even made the grade,

Those that we thought would never last.

.

Singers come and go,

And stars fade away.

They vanish in the haze

And they're never seen again,

But the music just keeps playing on.

.

They can't stop the music,

They can't stop the music,

They can't stop the music playing on.

.

I've been half a million places,

I've seen half a million people who stare,

I've been a star and down and out,

I've been put on, sat on, punched and spat on,

They've called me a faggot, a spiv and a fake,

They can knock me down and tread on my face,

They can't stop the music playing on.

.

Let's all raise a glass

To the rock stars of the past,

Those that made it,

Those that faded,

Those that never even made the grade,

Those that we thought would never last.

.

Singers come and go,

And stars fade away.

They vanish in the haze

And they're never seen again,

But they can't stop the music playing on.
