Lyrics

The world is turning down
That’s what she said
Shakin’ her head

In politics we’ll drown
Gored on shores

Of of this golden age

How can this be!
Why can’t they see!
That nobody cares?

TAKE A NUMBER BABY
PUT IT IN YOUR OVERCOAT YEAH
JUST TAKE A NUMBER BABY

PUT IT DEEP INSIDE YOUR BAG

The freaks are in the street
Hunting us down
That’s what he said

I just can’t compete
With leather and chains
And that crazy hair

Prehook: Repeat

CHORUS REPEAT (plus)
TAKE A NUMBER
JUST TAKE A NUMBER
TAKE A NUMBER
JUST TAKE A NUMBER…

(bridge)

The world is turning down (X4)

CHORUS: REPEAT (2nd Chorus)
