The Lyrics

l hate the darkness! and l love RT
in the darkness, who can play a note
in the darkness, who can sing?
He squeels like a child, squeels like a child
keeps his microphone on the holder
you know he can't pick it up
SHOOT OUT THAT BAND, SHOOT OUT THAT BAND

keep the volume down when they're played,
burn the cd from the fireside
just watching the sparks, just watching the sparks
you might laugh but you will need it
as he struggles for that chord
SHOOT OUT THAT BAND, SHOOT OUT THAT BAND

in the darkness the players mime
in the darnkess the writing's poor
poor as it gets, poor as it gets
as he watches the talent of a real band
and he realises the truth
SHOOT OUT THAT BAND, SHOOT OUT THAT BAND
