    Lyrics »

I remember when I
Was just a little bitty boy
Listenin' to the radio
I heard Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley
Beatles and the Stones
Dug that rock'n' roll

I caught the bug
The guitar bug
And my folks said
"Better turn it down
Before I pull the plug"

I remember when I
Was just about seventeen
I bought my first guitar
I leamed "Twine Time," "Pipeline"
"Sweet Little Sixteen"
Wanted to be a star

I caught the bug
The guitar bug
And my folks said
"Better turn it down
Before they pull the plug"

And I remember the night
When my first band
Was playin' at the high school hop
When we hit the bandstand
The girls started screamin'
Oh like they wouldn't stop

They caught the bug
The guitar bug
And the principal said
"Turn it down
Before I pull the plug"
And I said -

One more time, baby
The band was gettin' tight
Playin' every night
A sellout every show
Payin' dues
Playin' the blues
Now it's time to hit the road

Still got the bug
The guitar bug
And the people say
"You better turn it up
Before they pull the plug"

Now we're really doin' good
We live in Hollywood
In rock'n' roll paradise
Dinin' with the big, wheels
Talkin' over record deals
Boy, this sure feels nice

Chorus:
Still got the bug
The guitar bug
And the people say
"Turn it up, don't stop
Let it rock, one more encore
Do it 'fore they pull the plug"

(Repeat Chorus)
