LyricsEdit

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 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

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

We're not gonna take it (No)
No, we ain't gonna take it (You're all worthless and weak)
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 (Now drop and give me twenty)
