Bobby Darin

Route 58

 


 


 

      Well I guess I'm just a rock and roll singer tryin' to find my way ...
 
      I've been too busy listenin' to what everybody else had to say
      Advice ... huh ... is nice
      But I know I can't live twice ... huh
      And anyway once is all you need if you live the right way.
 
      I suppose I'm just a back street singer tryin' hard not to be
      Somethin' low I figured that was botherin' me for dignity
      But I'm wrong ... so wrong ... and I know where I belong ...
      I belong to the music of the music that will let me be me.
      
      W-ohh somewhere way back in 1958 or 9
      I listened to the way I felt decided brother I felt fine
      But some cash from Splash made me feel like a one-record flash ... huh
      So I took out after money and I left my natural self behind.
 
      As a rock and roll singer livin' somewhere underneath this hat
      Back street, back beat, rockin' nuthin' wrong with that
      Its real ... appeal ... is the way it makes you feel ...
      And feelin' is the only way I'm goin' to know where we're at.
      
      I guess I'm just a rock and roll singer tryin' to find my way
      Well I've been too busy listenin' to what everybody else had to say ...
      Advice ... ...
