Real Mckenzies – Droppin' Like Flies lyrics

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

[Chorus:]
This is a song saluting punkrockers 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 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 & the ramones
Now we just wanna say
They made us what we are today
So every time we play
We remember those of yesterday

[Chorus:]
This is a song saluting punkrockers rise
And what they did to change the times
With such a lifestyle they're burnin'
On both sides
Now they're droppin' like flies
All those punk rock guys

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

[Chorus:]
This is a song saluting punkrockers rise
And what they did to change the times
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
