Kareem Salama – Chivalry's Not Dead lyrics

They say that chivalry's dead, but I see chivalry everyday
I see men holding doors open for their ladies standing in the rain
They say all the good men are gone with the wind, but I see good men all the time
I see fellas helping friends pay the rent and the bills that got behind

Chorus: And I wanna keep it alive
To be good to my mama and good to my wife
So when folks say there ain't no noble men left
They'll have to look at me and know; they'll know

Chivalry's not dead
As long as we try to keep it alive
Chivalry's not dead

There's men that lose it all and got mouths to feed and they're patient through it all
He holds his hands up high and his head real low as he whispers a prayer to God
If there's any doubt about the men we've got or the men of recent times
Remember Malcolm and Nelson and Nartin and Hanson spoke truth through all the lies


Chivalry's not dead
As long as we try to keep it alive
Chivalry's not dead
It's gonna survive as long as we try
Chivalry's not dead

I see firefighters rushing into the blaze
And I see Oklahoma cowboys kissing their babes
And I ain't saying we don't need a few more
But the ones that try I don't wanna ignore


Chivalry's not dead (2x)

Be the chilvalry you wanna see widespread
And the reason the skeptics say
"Chivalry's not dead (3x)"
