The old school, is better than the new school
Our stunts, were stupider than your stunts
In the day knee pads were laughed at, we knew how to mess ourselves up
Climb on to the roof real high and jump from the top

The old school, is better than the new school
Our stunts, were stupider than your stunts
But first remember you only get one chance
Don't break your leg... Acid Drop!
There was pogoing and freestyling back when ramps were rad
What a great ride he's gleaming the cube right on it's rad woo-hoo
Steve caballero and Tony Hawk the elite of the bones brigade
Dwayne peters invented pool skating for me and you

Grab your skateboard and climb real high jump off don't die
But first remember you only get one chance don't break your leg... acid drop

There I stood on the roof of my parent's garage
The wind blew through my hair as I looked down at the yard
I felt like a NASA scientist on his first day of work, about to defy the laws of gravity
The crowd behind me said they'd give me to a count of three and then they'd push
But they only counted to two
SK8ORDIE SK8ORDIE SK8ORDIE SK8ORDIE or DIE

    General CommentAnother example of how the Planet Smashers can't stand the trends that seem to go along with ska and punk music.

    General Commenti dont think they necessarily can't stand it, maybe they are just more attached to their past

    General CommentYeah, it's about doing someing completely stupid like skating off the roof of your parents house. When you're pushed you have two choices, you either have to skate it and hope, or fall off and die!
