The Lyrics

Let’s take some hostages
You pay enough, we’ll let them go,
Not enough their heads we will blow.
it’s not for show.

Let’s take some hostages: (Let’s take some hostages)
You pay enough, we’ll let them go, (Let’s take some hostages; them go)
Not enough their heads we will blow. (Let’s take some hostages; we will blow)
It’s not for show

kidnapping’s fun
And I am broke
See your loved one
Disappearing with one stroke

Come with us you will not get hurt.
Your room has a floor of dirt.
The only food you’ll be fed
Is a piece of stale bread ...

Let’s take some hostages: (Let’s take some hostages)
You pay enough, we’ll let them go, (Let’s take some hostages; them go)
Not enough their heads we will blow. (Let’s take some hostages; we will blow)
It’s not for show

Let’s take some hostages: (Let’s take some hostages)
You pay enough, we’ll let them go, (Let’s take some hostages; them go)
Not enough their heads we will blow. (Let’s take some hostages; we will blow)
It’s not for show

Here are my demands.
And I will quote.
Will you please read.
The words in the note.

So if you want your loved ones back.
Put money in a paper sack
Drop the bag off at night,
I will get it in the morning li-ight. morning li-ight.

Let’s take some hostages: (Let’s take some hostages)
You pay enough, we’ll let them go, (Let’s take some hostages; them go)
Not enough their heads we will blow. (Let’s take some hostages; we will blow)
It’s not for show

Let’s take some hostages: (Let’s take some hostages)
You pay enough, we’ll let them go, (Let’s take some hostages; them go)
Not enough their heads we will blow. (Let’s take some hostages; we will blow)
It’s not for show
