Music Monday

Music Monday: We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

As I was working on getting everything ready for the blog moving, I decided to listen to an 80s playlist on Spotify. There are quite a few songs from that era I’m fond of, so it totally lifted my mood as I slaved away. I was absolutely NOT dancing in my seat… Or sining along… *ahem*

I was going to go with a Bon Jovi song, but then I decided on We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister. It’s a great song for a Monday like this (and generally for these times) and also made me long for going to a show. It’s been too long since I was able to attend and because of the pandemic, I had to miss my favourite Hungarian band at the beginning of the month. I’m definitely not amused by that.

Anyway, I hope this song will make your Monday a bit better. I’m running low on sleep so I definitely need the energy boost, lol.

Lyrics

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 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

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, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

No way!

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 (on your uniform)
We’re not gonna take it anymore
