​You Can't Kill Me

This song is by Mojo Nixon and appears on the album Whereabouts Unknown (1999).

You can't kill me
I will not die
Not now, not ever, no, never
I'm gonna live a long, long time
My soul raves on forever

Time has come
We will not wait
We storm the gates at dawn
Busting out of here
Into the world
Sing our victory song

(Come on, boys)
You can't kill me
I will not die
Not now, not ever, no, never
I'm gonna live a long, long time
My soul raves on forever

(Aim a flame, Johnson)

I stand alone
Out on the road
I know my flesh will rot
But the renegade
And the crazy free
Will not be forgot

You can't kill me
I will not die
Not now, not ever, no, never
I'm gonna live a long, long time
My soul raves on forever

(One more, yeah)

You know, there's people out there who want to ban books
They wanna ban my records
They wanna tell me when I can drink and what I can drink
They wanna ban drugs and sex and everything
People wanna have a lotta rules
Lotta rules and regulations, but listen up
Listen up, Mr. Rules and Regulations
I ain't gonna obey!

That's right, man
I ain't gonna do what you say
Oh, you can put me in jail
You can kill me
You could execute me
But you can't kill rock 'n roll, man
Tell you another damn thing, I ain't eatin' no more fuckin' McDonald's either
I ain't gonna eat it no more
I ain't gonna eat it 'cause it don't taste good
You know what, McDonald's can kiss my butt!

McDonald's can kiss my butt
It's a great big, hairy butt
Got a dingleberry hangin' off my butt
McDonald's, kiss my ass

You know, people say, "Mojo, you're always complainin' about everything
Why don't you vote in the election?
Why don't you come involved in the electorial process?"
Uh-uh, oh yeah, "Vote for Clinton, Mojo
It's gotta make everything nice and new and neat"
We got one fool just as big a fool as the other fool
Ain't nothin' changed
Same fools ridin' around in the black cars
We still ridin' around on the subway
Ridin' around on the bus
We ridin' around in a 1978, y'know, 1978 El Torino or some damn thing
Leakin' oil, we ain't got no money
Gotta pay taxes, everything screwed up
I ain't gonna take it no more
I'm gonna start an armed insurrection

I'm gonna go to the hills of West Virginia
And I'm gonna liberate some guns from the National Guard Armory
And I'm gonna start an armed revolt
'Cause at some time in the course of human events
It becomes necessary to disassociate yourself from the ties that bind
I'm gonna break them ties
I'm gonna bust 'em up

So there I am, standing around a campfire in the hills of West Virginia
And the flames are shootin' up high
And I happen to be the head of the armed insurrection, the rebel alliance
And I'm gonna sing our brand new, our brand new national anthem
That goes somethin' like this

You can't kill me
I will not die
Not now, not ever, no, never
I'm gonna live a long, long time
My soul raves on forever

You can't kill me
I will not die
Not now, not ever, no, never
I'm gonna live a long, long time
My soul raves on forever
My soul raves on forever
My soul raves on forever

Oh, you can shoot my body full of holes
But you can't kill the spirit of rock 'n roll, baby
