Well, I can 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
And I bought all the records that I could afford
And I played 'em all on my stereo

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

Well, 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 want to say
They made us who we are today
So every time we play
We remember those of yesterday

This is a song saluting punkrockers rise
And what they did to change the times
With such a lifestyle
They'll be burnin' on both sides
Now they're droppin' like flies
All those 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 never know, I could be next

This is a song saluting punkrockers rise
And what they did to change the times
With such a lifestyle
They'll be 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
