Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin´ up in the heartland
Jackie´s gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jackie´s car

Suckin´ on chilli dogs outside the tastee freeze
Diane sittin´ on Jackie´s lap
He´s got his hands between her knees
Jackie say, "Hey Diane let´s run off
Behind a shady tree
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks
Let me do what I please"
And Jackie say

Chorus:

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin´ is gone
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin´ is gone They walk on

Jackie sits back reflects his thoughts for a moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well you know Diane we oughtta run of the city
Diane says, "Baby you ain´t miss no-thing"
Jackie say

Chorus:

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin´ is gone
Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin´ is gone

Gonna let it rock
Let it roll
Let the bible belt come down
And save my soul
Hold on to 16 as lang as you can
Changes comin´ round real soon
Make us women and men

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin´ the best they can,
