G             (C/G)    C/G                C/G       G
Welcome to the camp, I guess you all know why we're here
F                           Em
  My name is Tommy, and I became aware this year
Eb                                 G           C/G  G
  If you want to follow me, you've got to play pinball
    C           G         C           G
And put in your earplugs, put on your eyeshades
    C                     G       G5 G5 G5 F5 G5
You know where to put the cork

Hey, you, gettin' drunk, so sorry, I've got you sussed
Hey, you, smokin' mother nature, this is a bust
Hey, hung up ol' Mr. Normal, don't try to gain my trust
'Cause you ain't gonna follow me any of those ways
Although you think you must

[CHORUS]
   G                       C   C    (G)  F   C  x4
   We're not gonna take it

  We're not gonna take it, never did and never will
C                 G              F               C
  We're not gonna take it, gonna break it, gonna shake it
      Bb        Am     (G)
Let's forget it better still

Now you can't hear me, your ears are truly sealed
You can't speak either, 'cause your mouth is filled
You can't see nothing, and pinball completes the scene
Here comes Uncle Ernie to guide you to your very own machine

[repeat CHORUS]
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it

C                 G              F       C         G
  We're not gonna take it, never did and never will
C                 G              F      C      G
  Don't want no religion, and as far as we can tell
C                G               F       C         G
  We ain't gonna take you, never did and never will
C                 G               F               C
  We're not gonna take you, we forsake you, gonna rape you

Let's forget you better still

             A    B         C
Listening to you, I get the music
          A    B         E
Gazing at you, I get the heat
          A    B           C
Following you, I climb the mountain
        G        D       Bsus4    B
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story
