"Same Old Song and Dance" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. The song was written by lead singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry. It was released in 1974 on the band's second album Get Your Wings. Although it failed to chart, it has remained a staple on most rock radio stations and in the band's setlist. The song has remained a fan favorite and a staple in the band's live shows. The band often does an extended jam during the song live in concert, often resulting in the song going two minutes over the song's original running time. This extended jam at the end of a song is used as a showcase for Tom Hamilton. Steven Tyler is also known to do his trademark scat singing during these jams. The song was built around a riff that Joe Perry came up with while sitting on his amp. Steven Tyler quickly came up with the lyrics. The song's lyrics are sung in sync with the main riff in the song. Additionally, the song is known for its upbeat rhythm and the dueling guitars by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, along with interspersed horns. "Same Old Song and Dance" has been featured on numerous Aerosmith compilations including Greatest Hits (1980) (where 52 seconds of the song are edited out and the first line from one of the verses is changed from "Got you with your cocaine..." to "Shady-looking loser..."), Pandora's Box (1991), O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits (2002), and Greatest Hits 1973–1988 (2004). The song can also be found on the live albums Classics Live II (1987), A Little South of Sanity (1998) and Rockin' the Joint (2005), as well as on the live DVD You Gotta Move (2004).


Aerosmith is a prominent American rock band. Three of its members, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Tom Hamilton, first met in Sunapee, New Hampshire in the late 60s, but it wasn't until 1970, in Boston, Massachusetts, that the three decided to form a band together. Later, they met up with Joey Kramer (drums) and Brad Whitford (rhythm guitar). The band enjoyed major popularity throughout the 70s, making rock anthems such as "Dream On" and "Sweet Emotion" Show more ...

Same Old Song and Dance - Aerosmith

Get yourself cooler
Lay yourself low
Coincidental murder
With nothing to show
When the judge's constipation
Goes to his head
And his wife's aggravation
You're soon enough dead

It's the same old story
Same Old Song And Dance, my friend
It's the same old story
Same Old Song And Dance, my friend

Got you with the cocaine
They found with your gun
No smooth face laywer
To get ya undone
Say love ain't the same
On the south side of town
You could look
But you ain't gonna find it around

It's the same old story
Same Old Song And Dance, my friend
It's the same old story
Same old story
Same Old Song And Dance

Fate comes a-knockin'
Doors start lockin'
Your old time connection
Change your direction
Ain't gonna change it
Can't rearrange it
Can't stand the pain
When it's all the same to you, my friend

When you're low down and dirty
From walkin' the street
With your old hurdy gurdy
No one to meet
Said love ain't the same
On the south side of town
You could look
But you ain't gonna find it around

It's the same old story
Same Old Song And Dance, my friend
It's the same old story
Same old story
Same Old Song And Dance
