lyrics

Hey everyone, grab your guns
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Baseball bats and kerosine
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Grab a sack, a black ski mask
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Hey there kid, there's no turning back
But you're gonna have some fun tonight

Take your shot, make it clean
knock 'em to the floor
A pirouette of bullets
Show them something never seen before
Grab your loot, then clean your suit
Leave behind no traces of the score
Times are rough, that's why we are tough
We'll show just what we stand for

Give them hell
Break down that door
They'll only beg for mercy if you show them none at all
Yeah they've done crimes, but pay no time
That's why tonight we're gonna give 'em hell

That land of gold
It Has its toll
The path to the top
Is paved with their souls
What they stole
Can't be replaced
Our hopes, our dreams
Have all gone up in flames
Yeah they've done crimes
But pay no time
That's why tonight we're gonna give 'em hell

They can run, but they can't hide
The riches of the world they'll soon come to despise
Once complacent, now won't be ignored
With a shotgun collar and a two by four
They had their time at the top
But Rome has now fallen and the president has been shot
We'll call it a gathering, we'll call it war
Things won't ever be the same as they were before

So give them hell
Break down the door
They'll only scream for mercy when you show them none at all
Yeah they've done crimes, but pay no time
That's why tonight we're gonna give 'em hell
