We're Not Gonna Take It
Oh, we're not gonna take it
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, 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

Oh, we're not gonna take it
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, 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

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
We're right (Yeah)
We're free (Yeah)
We'll fight (Yeah)
You'll see (Yeah)
Whoa, whoa

We're not gonna take it
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore

Oh, we're not gonna take it
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore
No way!

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
We're right (Yeah)
We're free (Yeah)
We'll fight (Yeah)
You'll see (Yeah)

We're not gonna take it
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore

Oh, we're not gonna take it (No!)
A-no, we ain't gonna take it
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore (Just you try and make us!)

Oh, we're not gonna take it (Come on!)
A-no, we ain't gonna take it (You're all worthless and weak!)
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore (Now drop and give me twenty!)

Oh, we're not gonna take it (A pledge pin)
A-no, we ain't gonna take it (On your uniform)
Oh, we're not gonna take it anymore
