  • There was a time a long long time ago
    Chevy's and Levi's played on the radio
    No cell phones just twenty thousand lights
    Swayin' on a Saturday night alright

    Can you imagine that slice of time
    Rock 'n roll was young, people stood in line
    To hear music that played into their lives
    That you could carry 'til the day you died

    Hey man sing me a song
    When we were everyone
    We were more than just a slice
    Of American Pie

    Have you read my blog today
    Three hundred million little USA's
    Your doorstep is just a click away
    We'll get together one of these days

    How can you be as nice as me
    You're not from the same slice as me
    Where do we go from here my friend
    Is this the way our story ends

    Hey man sing me a song
    When we were everyone
    We were more than just a slice
    Of American Pie

    Can't stop singin' along
    Can you join in, come on
    Are we more than just a slice
    Of American pie

    We're top down lovers, it's Saturday night
    The band's roarin' and it feels so right
    The moon's dancin' and the stars are free
    I caught your heart on a summer's breeze

    Whatever was or what's meant to be
    Our melodies are memories

    There was a time a long long time ago
    Chevy's and Levi's played on the radio
    No cell phones just twenty thousand lights
    Swayin' on a Saturday night alright

    Hey man sing me a song
    When we were everyone
    We were more than just a slice
    Of American Pie

    I can't stop singin' along
    Can you join in, come on
    Are we more than just a slice
    Of American pie
    (American pie)

    We're more than a slice
    We're more than a slice
    We're more than just a slice
    Of American pie Writer/s: GREGG WATTENBERG, JOHN ONDRASIK, STEPHAN SCHWARTZ
