One...
(Fe vuela.)
From the top and no stopping,
Two, three...

We fight the battle (We fight the battle)
All the tii-i-i-ime. (All the tii-i-i-ime.)
Though it ain't easy, (Though it ain't easy,)
We don't mii-i-i-ind. (We don't mii-i-i-ind.)
We mock the voice of evil, (We mock the voice of evil,)
Challenge the will of God, (Challenge the will of God,)
Live long the live-long da-ay. (Live long the live-long da-ay.)

Then we'll throw down the gauntlet, (throw down the gauntlet,)
Raise a flaa-a-a-ag. (Raise a flaa-a-a-ag.)
Close compromising (Close compromising)
Is a draa-a-a-ag. (Is a draa-a-a-ag.)
We sleep in brambles, baby: (We sleep in brambles, baby:)
That's why we're called "The Thorns." (That's why we're called "The Thorns.")
Leave you in shambles, baby. (Leave you in shambles, baby.)
Aaaa-aaaa-ah (Aaaa-aaaa-ah)
Aaaa-aaaa-ah (Aaaa-aaaa-ah)

That's why we're called "The Thorns." (That's why we're called "The Thorns.")
That's why we're called "The Thorns." (That's why we're called "The Thorns.")
That's why we're called... (That's why we're called...)
(Bah...)

We sleep in brambles, baby: (We sleep in brambles, baby:)
That's why we're called (That's why we're called...)
"The Thorns." (Oh...)
Leave you in shambles, baby. (Leave you in shambles, baby.)

La la-la la la, (La la-la la la,)
La, la, ha ha ha. (La, la, ha ha ha.)
(La, la,)
La la-la la la, (La,)
La-la la, la ha ha. (La, la, la ha ha.)
Hee-e-e-ey, (La, la,)

La la-la la la, (La,)
La la, ha ha ha. (La, la, ha, oh.)
(La, la,)
La la-la la la, (La,)
La-la la, la ha ha. (La, la, la ha ha.)
He-e-ey, (La, la,)

La la-la la la, (La,)
La-la la, ha ha ha. (La, la, ha ha ha.)
La la-la la la, (La,)
La-la la, la ha ha. (La, la, la ha ha.)
(La...)

La la-la la... (La la-la...)
(La...)
(Ha...)
That might have been okay.
(La...)
