Twisted Sister, “We’re not gonna take it”

 

We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’ve got the right to choose and there ain’t no way we’ll lose it / This is our life, this is our song / We’ll fight the powers that be just, don’t pick our destiny ’cause / You don’t know us, you don’t belong

We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore

Oh, you’re so condescending, your gall is never ending / We don’t want nothing, not a thing, from you / Your life is trite and jaded, boring and confiscated / If that’s your best, your best won’t do

We’re right, yeah / We’re free, yeah / We’ll fight, yeah / You’ll see, yeah

We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore / We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore

No way!

We’re right, yeah / We’re free, yeah / We’ll fight, yeah / You’ll see, yeah

We’re not gonna take it / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’re not gonna take it (no!) / No, we ain’t gonna take it / We’re not gonna take it anymore (just you try and make us)

We’re not gonna take it (come on) / No, we ain’t gonna take it (you’re all worthless and weak) / We’re not gonna take it anymore (now drop and give me twenty)

We’re not gonna take it (a pledge pin) / No, we ain’t gonna take it (on your uniform) / We’re not gonna take it anymore
