I Left Hockey for Rock and Roll

Grade 9 and 10, in Regina, Saskatchewan, was a turning point for me.  My dream to play in the NHL morphed into rocking it on the skins with AJAL.  Then I wanted to play in the NHL again.


I LEFT HOCKEY FOR ROCK AND ROLL
my dream in high school
was with the band
when my pearl drums
beat out my playoff plans
i used to play peewee
but i got hurt
then i heard 'tom sawyer'
and became neil peart
i left hockey for rock and roll...
it wasn't because i was a nerd
it wasn't because my team
kept on comin' in third
it wasn't because i wasn't a jock
it was all because of johann sebastian bach
i left hockey for rock and roll...
my dream in high school
was in the band
but now i take a slapshot every chance i can
cause i left hockey for rock and roll
but i came back
whattya think about that, dad?
i play hockey and rock and roll
it's good for my soul
it's good for my soul...
