The Band Plays On

Anderson, John (USA)
She said, "Let's sit the next one out", and took me by the hand
Led me to the corner and said, "I hope you'll understand"
But it feels like the thrill is gone I don't love you anymore
My ears are still a ringing when you slammed the back door

And the band plays on even when the teardrops fall
And the band plays on like nothing ever happened at all
It jingles and jangles and rocks to the rhythm and everybody sings along
Even when the walls start caving in the band plays on

Walked out in dark of the night saw her tail lights disappear
She took her love from me and left me standing here
And I felt like it's the end of the world as I stared down the street
My heart was torn in two but it never missed a beat

And the band plays on even when the teardrops fall
And the band plays on like nothing ever happens at all
It jingles and jangles and rocks to the rhythm and everybody sings along
Even when the walls start caving in the band plays on

Now don't feel sorry for me till they bring that curtain down
I'm gonna keep on playing my part till my heart strings come around

And the band plays on even when the teardrops fall
And the band plays on like nothing ever happened at all
It jingles and jangles and rocks to the rhythm and everybody sings along
Even when the walls start caving in the band plays on

Even when the rain falls from the sky
Even when there's trouble on the rise
Even when a lover's knot unties the band plays on
Even when your world starts crashing down
Even when your heart strings come unwound
Even when they lay you in the ground the band plays on
And on, and on, and on
