lyrics

We tried to tell you
How much we want you
But you didn't listen
You didn't care
We tied to help you
We tried to warn you
But you don't want a gang around
'cause you don't swear
But we're pretty tough friends to use
So you'd better beware

Come join my gang

You don't like brick fights
You don't smash street lights
But that's all we like to do
That's all we'll do to you
But we're pretty tough men to piss
So you'd better beware

Come join my gang

The times are falling
The mood is right
The moment's passing
Join us tonight

We tried to help you
Yes we tried to warn you
But you don't wan't a gang around
'Cause you don't care
But we're pretty tough friends to use
So you'd better beware

Join my gang
Joing my gang
Join my gang
Join my gang
