A long long time ago
I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
 
But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step
 
I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
Something touched me deep inside
The day the music died
So
 
Bye, bye Miss American Pie...
