Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/4/18

Today, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt words Take/Taking. Thanks, Helen!

There are lots and lots of songs with those words in the title or lyrics, so I had to decide which one to post. Some had already been chosen by others, and some I just wasn’t in a mood for. But this one I just couldn’t pass up. It’s fun and silly and really rockin’! \m/

It was mostly between this one and one by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Under the Bridge”, so I asked the Mr. which one should I post. He loves all kinds of music, too, and so we watched this video a couple of times, and we decided, yes, this is the one. We do like RHCP songs a lot, but that one was a little more subdued, and we weren’t in the mood.

Anyway, hope this one works for you today! Happy SLS! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, we’re not gonna take it
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
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 nothin’
Not a thing from you

Your life is trite and jaded
Boring and confiscated
If that’s your best
Your best won’t do

Oh, oh, we’re right, yeah, we’re free, yeah
We’ll fight, yeah, you’ll see, yeah

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

Oh, we’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore
No way

Oh, oh, 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
Oh, you on your uniform
We’re not gonna take it anymore

  1. I remember when this video first hit MTV, the look on my mom’s face was priceless LOL – but, the song is so catchy, she ended up loving it just as much as I did. Thanks for the memories! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Jim!
      That was a great movie! It’s been years since I’ve seen it, so don’t recall all the songs played on there. Glad you enjoyed this one, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
