Lyrics (1990)[]

Pasqually: New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I'd rather be
Jasper: Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three
Helen: When they play their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
Munch: But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
Really really drives 'em wild (laughs)

All: They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Pasqually: Now the old boy may be barely breathing
All: But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating

Chuck E.: Ha-ha! And now, to beat up the band, here's the Bullhorns!

(Saxophone solo)

Pasqually and Helen: D.C., San Antone and the Liberty Town
Pasqually: Boston and-a Baton Rouge
Jasper: Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City
Munch: Seattle, San Francisco, too (Ha!)
Helen and Jasper: Everywhere there's music, real live music (Munch: Yeah!)
Jasper: Bands with a million styles
Munch: But it's still that same old rock and roll music
Really really drives 'em wild

All: Th-th-th-th-they say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Pasqually: Now the old boy may be barely breathing
All: But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating, yeah

Chuck E.: In Cleveland
Pasqually: Detroit!!
All: Heart of rock and roll

Lyrics (2007)[]

Chuck E.: New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I'd rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three

When they play their music, ooh that modern music
They like it with a lot of style
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really really drives 'em wild

All: They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Chuck E. and Helen: Now the old boy may be barely breathing
All: But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating

Chuck E.: Heh-heh!

L.A., Hollywood, and the Sunset Strip
Is something everyone should see
Neon lights and the boys and girls
All laugh so happily

When they play their music, that hard rock music
They play it with a lot of style
Chuck E.: and Helen: But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really really drives 'em wild

Chuck E.: and Helen: They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
All: And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Chuck E.: and Helen: Now the old boy may be barely breathing
All: But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating

Munch: Yeah!
Chuck E.: Heh! Take it, Mr. Munch! OW!!!
Munch: All right!

(Saxophone solo)

Chuck E.: C'mon, everybody! Get up and dance! Oh, yeah!
Jasper: All right!
(Chuck E. giggles)
Munch: Here we go, now!
Chuck E.: Everybody! That's it! March! Dance! C'mon!
Munch: And Grandma's dancin', too!
Chuck E.: Pick 'em up, pick 'em up right outta this drawer right here!
Jasper: Help me move it!
Chuck E.: (giggles) Yeah!
Munch: Whoo!
Chuck E.: Here we go!

Chuck E., Helen, and Jasper: D.C., San Antone and the Liberty Town, Boston and-a Baton Rouge
Tulsa, Austin, Oklahoma City, Seattle, San Francisco too
Chuck E.: Everywhere there's music,
Chuck E. and Helen: Real live music
Chuck E.: Bands with a million styles
Chuck E. and Helen: But it's still that same old rock and roll music
That really really drives 'em wild

Chuck E.: and Helen: Th-th-th-th-they say
All: The heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Chuck E.: and Helen: Now the old boy may be barely breathing
All: But the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating, yeah (Jasper: Hey!)

Chuck E.: In Cleveland (Heh!)
