  1. Folk s not dead! So rise up higher Folk s not dead! And we take off now Folk s not dead! Let s get our skates on Folk s not dead! For singing louder Those days When we cruised around and got the wrong lines And we don t give a damn about the bad signs So we went down the drain Acting like dirty dweebs but here we stand up again!
