  • Pickin' up some Lucky Strikes
    Leanin' on the wall outside
    They don't make 'em like that anymore
    Talkin', down at the corner store
    They shut their lights and they closed their doors
    'Cause they don't make 'em like that anymore
    But you and I are classic

    Like a bench in the front seat
    Like a big yellow taxi
    Like your best friend's mixtape
    A big limo and a prom date
    Ain't nothin' new I'm waitin' for
    'Cause they don't make 'em like this anymore

    I wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    Wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    They don't make 'em like this anymore

    Fixin' up the '65
    Take ya to the drive-in tonight
    They don't make 'em like that anymore
    With the stars on the screen, good Lord
    I'm talkin', speaker hangin' off a truck door
    No, they don't make 'em like that anymore
    But you and I are classic

    Like a bench in the front seat
    Like a big yellow taxi
    Like your best friend's mixtape
    A big limo and a prom date
    Ain't nothin' new I'm waitin' for
    'Cause they don't make 'em like this anymore

    I wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    Wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    They don't make 'em like this anymore

    Johnny and June
    Chevy, light blue
    (They don't make 'em like this anymore)
    Bette Davis
    Yellow pages
    (They don't make 'em like this anymore)
    But you and I, we were built to last it
    Just a couple of stone cold classics
    Just a couple of stone cold classics
    Just a couple of stone cold classics

    I wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    Wanna hit rewind, baby
    Take our time
    They don't make 'em like this anymore (ah, ah, ah)
    They don't make 'em like this anymore (ah, ah, ah)
    They don't make 'em like this anymore
