    Conditial Sentences, Type 2

    Hello, dear teachers! You are always very kind
    and you always help me so, please, don't stop now!


    If you ask me how I'm doing,
    I would say I'm doing just fine.

    This is a part of the lyrics of a song. Is this acceptable
    in informal English (spoken)? Or, maybe, the lyrics are wrong?

    (Not a Teacher)

    The second part of that conditional should be future tense, but I wouldn't look to songs for proper English.
