This song is performed by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Hearts Of Oak (2003).
I was walking along some downtown avenue
I was whistling a new song to myself
And it went, it went something like this one
But I just couldn't make it end

Well, I was talking about this song to this friend of mine
And she sang me a new song of her own
She said, she said the cards were still stacked against her
But she said she could still go it alone

And I saw for all of us, she spoke
Won't you stand up for the hearts of oak?

I was listening to this song by this friend of mine
I was hearing what she said, I was feeling her rage
She said no weak, no weak heart shall prosper
She said, she said nothing's wrong and I belong on this stage

And I saw for all of us, she spoke
Won't you stand up for the hearts of oak?
And I saw her stand, she couldn't be broken
And I saw her show her heart of oak again and again and again and again

If you think, if you think everything is cool
Can't, can't you hear what the girl goes through?
Can, can you tell em that it's not true?
Can you find, can you find hearts of oak in you?

When the night, it ends and you've awoken
Won't you stand up with your heart of oak again?
Like the girl withstands, she can't be broken
Won't you stand up for the hearts of oak again and again and again and again?

I was walking along some downtown avenue
I was sharing the sidewalk with my friend
We were singing a song together and it sounded so good
We said, we said let's sing it again, and it had no end
