What to do what to do now
I'm telling you I'm telling you
Soon you'll know soon you'll know
It will be through it will be through

One two three one two three
What do you see what do you see now
Four five six four five six
I've got my stick you know I've got my stick

Do your thing do your thing
Whenever you can whenever you can now
When you must when you must now
You take your stand you take your stand

Well alright it will end it will end
Well alright well alright
Stay alive stay alive
Well alright well alright
We'll get back back
Well oh no well alright
Well alright alright
Well alright well alright well alright
