Item Number: S0.902843

Comedic song for a soprano who has decided this is no time to be nice! This is an uptempo song with some challenging modulations and a wide range (G3-B5), but a catchy tune and lyrics that poke fun of the belligerence of modern society.

The world today’s gone mad, they say,

And I feel it’s a fitting rebuke,

No sooner you’re meeting a stranger,

Than he’s telling you “Put up your dukes,”

 

There’s no longer a role for a peaceful soul,

When you’re caught between muscle and might,

If you’re gonna get through,

There’s just one thing to do,

So you take a deep breath,

And you join in the fight!

 

Hit ‘em again,

If it’s rough, make it rougher,

Someone’s gotta suffer,

But you’ll be the one who survives,

When they’re aiming to give you the worst,

You can beat ‘em by hitting ‘em first!

Then hit ‘em again,

Hit ‘em again,

Hit ‘em again.

 

Hit ‘em again,

Make it long, make it lasting,

They’re practically asking

For a pummeling right in the puss,

They’ll remember how right you are

When you leave ‘em a permanent scar,

Hit ‘em again,

Hit ‘em again,

Hit ‘em again.

 

A swine who would sooner cut you than concede,

But he won’t look half as tough when his nose is bleeding,

You can spout your facts and figures but eventually you find

It’s better to make him have to change his pants than change his mind.

 

Hit him again,

Make him dance, make him dizzy,

Sure it’s brutal, but is he

Not a villain deserving of grief?

He’s a louse and unless I’m mistook,

All his geese should be thoroughly cooked!

So hit him again,

And then…

 

Hit him again,

Make him shake, make him shudder,

When he’s starting to sputter,

It’s then you go in for the kill,

Leave him all in a heap on the pitch,

‘Til he’s crying like some little bitch!

Hit him again,

Hit him again,

Hit him again, and then again!
