We played it fast, we played it loud
A bit too much, a bit too proud
The only way we knew to do it right
It washed away the misery
So do you know your history
Or did you only show up for the fight

Now all my friends are heading to L’Amour
Half of them are bounced right out the door
And if we had the chance to say
Not to go another way

Here’s to the old school, didn’t matter if you looked cool
We drank some beers and broke some heads
We never gave a shit
Climbed every mountain, stormed every city
They said that this would never last
We never gave a fuck

Yeah there’s blood all over me
I caught the eye of Johnny Z
Bang your head, thrash around the pit
Who the fuck woulda thunk
They’re playing us on Eddie Trunk
Catch some air, dive, who gives a shit

And all my friends are heading to the Ritz
Bobby G, Rat Skates, DD & Blitz
And if we get the chance to play
No, we’ll never go away

Here’s to the old school, didn’t matter if you looked cool
We drank some beers and broke some heads
We never gave a shit
Climbed every mountain, stormed every city
They said that this would never last
We never gave a fuck

Here’s to the old school, didn’t matter if you looked cool
We drank some beers and broke some heads
We never gave a shit
Climbed every mountain, we stormed every city
They said that this would never last
We never gave a fuck

Here’s to the old school, didn’t matter if you looked cool
We drank some beers and broke some heads
We never gave a shit
Climbed every mountain, stormed every city
They said that this would never last
We never gave a fuck
