The Lyrics

Ahh! Oh no! Ah-hnnnggg!

Look out! An ant mound!
Here they come! All around!
Hot foot, climbin' up my ankle now
Crotch I'm holdin' in, Now I'm yodelin'

Don't you know I dropped some LSD
They bite, those suckers burn!

Run amok! Run amok!
Run amok! Run amok!

Ain't nothing like it, at first I got high
Then time slowed, as I "whoaed", and my throat got real dry
Saw red, as those insects bit my head
Got a big rush comin', like a mushroom

Don't you know I dropped some PCP
They bite, those monsters burn!

Run amok! Run amok! Ow!
Run amok! Run amok! Ow, ow, ow, ow

(Screaming, painful guitar solo)

Yeah, I'm running a little bit nude tonight
I can barely see the bugs with my skin coming off
You know that I'm ranting?
Ahh, you reach out and put "em behind my back n' I'm a cop car!

I'm hummin', I'm flyin'
Right along in the downtown holding cell
And I'm wailin' that Van Halen
Eyeballs poppin', I'm in copper hell

Run amok! Run amok!
Run amok! Run amok! Ow, ow, ow, ow
Run amok! Run amok! Ow, ow, ow, ow
Run amok
