We're not gonna take it,
No, we ain't gonna take,
We're not gonna take it anymore.
We've got a 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 because you don't know us,
You don't belong Chorus
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.
