I recall back in '79, I was just a wee kid livin' in a dive
Didn't drink, didn't dance, didn't ever smoke hash
But it changed when I heard The Clash
And you know I needed more so I got
Up and out to the record store
I bought all the records I could afford
An' I played 'em all on my stereo

This is a song saluting punk rockers' rise
And what they did to change the times
But with such a lifestyle they're burnin'
On both sides
Now they're droppin' like flies
All those old punk rock guys

I became a fan and I remain that way
And to this day, I'm still blown away
Those bands just cut me to the bone
Like The Damned, The Pistols and The Ramones
Now we just wanna say
They made us what we are today
So now every time we play
We remember those of yesterday

This is a song saluting punk rockers' rise
And what they did to change the times
But with such a lifestyle they're burnin'
On both sides
Now they're droppin' like flies
All those old punk rock guys

Well, I became a fan and I remain that way
And to this day, I'm still blown away
And then there's me: I'm not dead yet
But you never know - I could be next

This is a song saluting punk rockers' rise
And what they did to change the times
But with such a lifestyle they're burnin'
On both sides
Now they're droppin' like flies
All those old punk rock guys
They're droppin' like flies
All those old punk rock guys
They're droppin' like flies
All those old punk rock guys
